Peacefully, surrounded by his family, at Bluewater Health on Thursday, April 11, 2013, Beverly John Wiley Elgie Jr. passed away at the age of 58. Beloved husband, and best friend since childhood, of Debbie (Scaman) for 40 years. Loving father of Shey-Lynn Elgie (Chad Vanderkloet), Kelly Mumford (Scott), and Scott Elgie (Natalie). Devoted Papa to Hunter, Kyla, Brennan, Nolan, Presley, Jaxon and Grasyn. Will be missed by his special companion “Judd.” Dear son of Bev Elgie Sr. and Marilyn Elgie.

Beverly’s greatest joy was being a father and a papa. He always made sure his family felt loved and came before everything else. His motto “Family First” will forever be instilled in our hearts. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
