Elbeck, John Xavier
John Xavier Elbeck - Pueblo Chieftain - May 14, 2004 - John Xavier Elbeck, 99, affectionately known as "Grandpa," born Feb. 28, 1905, in Birmingham, Ala., departed this life May 10, 2004, at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center. He was a graduate of Centennial High School, where he was a star basketball player. Taken from an article that appeared in the Pueblo newspaper sports column, "On the Centennial first squad there is only one star and that is Elbeck, the little colored flash who is able to handle two opponents with ease. Last Saturday night it was evident that the Mormons centralized their attack on Elbeck, but he managed to slip back and forth by extraordinary footwork, and evade the opposing guards. He is fast and flashy and deserves more than ordinary mention." Mr. Elbeck made All-State in 1921, the same year the Centennial basketball team went undefeated. On Nov. 12, 1984, he was inducted into the Greater Pueblo Sports Hall of Fame. He retired from the CF&I, 20-inch mill and served in the U.S. Army during WWII. He was a member of Eureka Lodge No. 2 AF&AM (PHA). Preceded in death by his parents, Tim and Ida Bell Elbeck; a sister, Sally Taylor; a brother, Orange Elbeck; first wife, Olga Elbeck; a son, Carter Elbeck; a daughter, Jackie Wilson; grandson, Phillip Elbeck; mother-in-law, Nellie Ellis; two brothers-in-law, Mack and Tommy Ewing. "Grandpa" was always the center of attraction at King's Barber Shop, where he held "court." His knowledge of sports and stats was uncanny, no matter the sporting event. Survived by his beloved wife, Permilla Ewing Elbeck; children, John (Barbara) Elbeck Jr., Barbara (Eddie) Williams, Forest (Sandra) Elbeck; 20 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; 19 great-great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Patsy Sue Ewing; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Chas. S. Elmire - Walsenburg World - April 14, 1922 - Comrade Elmire was born at Gardner and was reared to manhood at that place. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo.

Very soon after reaching France he was promoted to Corporal in his Company and was in action. He was wounded in the Argonne Forrest drive and succumbed from these injuries on his 24th birthday, November 28th, 1918. He was a brave soldier who served his country in the time of need and gave his life to uphold the principles of American freedom. He is survived by his parents, one brother, Geo.

Elms, Charles Leroy
Charles Leroy Elms - Colorado Springs Gazette - March 11, 2007 - Charles Leroy Elms went quietly and peacefully to be with our Lord in the early morning hours of March 6, after a lengthy illness. At his side was his loving wife and life partner, Lynn. Since 1989, Charlie demonstrated a strong, quiet strength and commitment in his fight with cancer and despite four bouts, cancer did not win. He was completely cancer free when he went into the Lord's arms. Charlie and about thirty of his family and best friends had just celebrated his 69th birthday in February. Charlie was a quiet, gentle man. He was an artist with the camera, and spent his entire career as a photographer. For many years Charlie was Chief of Photography at the U.S. Air Force Academy. While at the Academy, he had a great time traveling to many places to photograph everyone and everything from sports events to dignitaries to presidents. (He also enjoyed the notion of flying to some far-flung location for lunch and returning home later in the day.) One of the earliest and proudest memories of his career was the opportunity to photograph aspects of the Apollo Space Program in California. Throughout the years, many of Charlie's outstanding photographs have been selected as presentation pieces. Charles and his sisters, Margaret and Marilyn, grew up on Sunny Hills Ranch in Fullerton, California. As a young teenager, the family moved to Brawley, in the Imperial Valley. He began his career at the age of 13, when he talked Lou Gesler, Brawley photographer, into letting him sweep the studio floor. He graduated from Brawley High, class of 1957. Instead of taking a date to the proms, he took his camera. Following high school, Charlie served in the U.S. Army for several years as a photographer and was stationed in Germany, which he loved. After the Army, he returned to the Imperial Valley and lived there until he and his first wife, Wilma, and daughter Cheryl moved to San Diego, where his twin sons, Ron and Aaron, were born. Charlie began working for the government in El Centro, California, and later transferred to San Diego, where he worked for the Department of the Navy for eighteen years. While living in San Diego, he especially enjoyed time with his family, remodeling his home and playing volleyball on the beach with friends. Charlie and Lynn met in San Diego and were married there in 1982. The following year they moved to Colorado Springs for his new assignment at the Academy, and Ron and Aaron joined them soon after. He and Lynn recently bought a home in Monument, where Lynn still resides. He loved the pond in their backyard, and spent time sitting beside it almost every day last summer. This is where the celebration of Charlie's life will be held in the spring, as was his wish. The date will be announced when arrangements are completed, and all are invited to join in remembering him. Charlie agreed that waiting until spring was a good idea, since the backyard is now full of snow and the pond is icy, and the thought of having folks mush through the snow to sit around an icy pond wasn't very appealing. After his retirement from Civil Service, the focus (no pun intended) of his photography changed to family pictures and weddings. His home is filled with pictures of his 13 grandchildren and one great-grandson as well as their parents. He was especially fond of pictures he'd taken of his daughter, Cheryl, and her beautiful smile. There aren't many pictures of Lynn, as she was usually busy rearranging people for group pictures and making suggestions for poses. In this, as in many other aspects of their life, Charlie and Lynn were a great team. Charlie and Lynn were married for almost 25 years, which was significantly longer than either initially expected. They were a truly blended family. During elections, the Republican sign was in the right side of the front yard and the Democrat sign was on the left. Charlie was always known for being early and Lynn was notorious for being late. Occasionally, she would say, "Look, Charlie, we're going to be on time!" To which Charlie would respond, with his usual dry sense of humor, "We're not there yet." Among other traits, Aaron and Ron have inherited their father's timeliness. One of the highlights of Charlie's later years was the morning coffee bunch at Serrano's in Monument. He frequently took his grandchildren, who have happy memories of time with Grandpa. Even after he was unable to drive, his friends came to take him to coffee many mornings. In addition to his wife Lynn, Charlie is survived by his children, Cheryl Yoder and husband Alex, Ron Elms, Aaron Elms and wife Angel, his mother Allene Mulligan, sister Marilyn Boone and brother-in-law Harvey, sister Margaret Doty, nephew Dennis Doty, niece, Debra Burns and grand-nieces Alyssa and Taylor Burns, "adopted" sons-in-law Jon and Johnnie and former daughter-in-law, Mica; grandchildren Kristina, Nicole, Samantha, Jessicah, Joshua, Myrissa, Sinnthya, Jesse, Adam, Anna, Mary Jo, Alannah, and Ashley; niece Debra Burns and nephew Dennis Doty; brother-and-sister-in law Lee and Valarie Hoppin, niece Miranda and nephew Evan Hoppin. His great-grandson, Haven B. Charlie Elms, was born on Charlie's 68th birthday. His passing was preceded by his father, Herman Elms and his stepfather Tom Mulligan. Charlie and Lynn are grateful for the years of caring and support from family and friends. The list is endless, but special mention go to his best friend Bill Petty, Kris Fitzsimmons, Kathy Forman, Carol Waltman, Jeannie and Al Larkin, Armin and Nancy Sommer, Gil and Phyllis Moore and Bob Smith. For many years Charlie appreciated very special friendships with Phyllis Carmichael, Annikki Hakala, Mi-Lou Trask, Kris Rohren and Cathy and Nick Schoeder. We are also especially grateful for the outstanding care provided by Drs. Paul Anderson and Matthew Logsdon at RMCC, Dr. Dennis Schneider, Dr. Jack Adams, Dr. Joel Ernster, Dr. Gil Porat, Dr. Pierre Anctil and Dr. Bob Munson. Thank you also to Carla Ryan, RN and Darlene (Perki) Meyerson, CNA, and especially, to Jennifer Gail Adams, our caregiver, for her love and friendship this past year. Charlie and his family also received outstanding care from the staff of Evercare Hospice during his last weeks. Charlie's wish is that, in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center at 3057 N. Circle, Colorado Springs, Co, 80909.

Elwin, George
George Elwin – Durango Democrat – July 1, 1902 – Right to Picket – Will Be Tested in Pueblo – Funeral of Elwin to Be Largely Attended – Pueblo, Colo., June 30 – The funeral of George Elwin, the Cooks and Waiters' union picket, who was shot and killed in front of the Riverside restaurant Thursday morning by Jacob Dodgson, was held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The members of sixty-five labor organizations in Pueblo, together with from two to three hundred unionists from Cripple Creek, Victor, Denver, Colorado Springs and coal camps in that vicinity, will attend. There is much indignation among the laboring men over the killing and the authorities, fearing trouble, have ordered a large number of extra policemen on duty. Rifle Reveille - July 11, 1902 - The coroner's jury at Pueblo in the case of the death of George Elwin returned a verdict as follows: "We, the jury, find that the said George Elwin came to his death by a gunshot wound at the hands of one Jacob Dodgson, with felonious intent to-wit: Being continually harassed and aggravated by the said George Elwin and others picketing before his (Dodgson's) place of business, he did, under great excitement and mental strain, and through fear of bodily harm, commit such act. We further deplore the existing state of affairs, wherein citizens are refused protection in the pursuit of legitimate business, by the police force of the city."
