After serving in the US Navy in the Korean War, Elwin was a pastor for 40 years, earning both an MBA and a PhD in theology. Despite his academic credentials, he preferred "just Bud."
Since childhood he loved magic and performed many tricks applying scripture lessons into his act. Specifically memorable was that he could breathe fire.
Elwin was greatly loved, and we rejoice that he is in Heaven with our loved ones and friends that have already passed.
