We have known the Elder family since childhood.  There is no finer example of a son carrying out his parents’ legacy of love and grace  than Jimmy Elder. We are so very sad to hear of his passing. You could always guarantee getting a smile from Jimmy and he never failed to ask about the family and how everyone was doing. He loved to keep my mother informed about the status of her favorite cookies (Mallomars) and their seasonal appearance on store shelves. ❤️ Jimmy will be greatly missed.  Rest in Heaven, friend.

I grew up with Jimmy and graduated Central with him.В  There was a direct path from the back of his house to mine on 43rd Street.В  We shared suppers a lot.В  I hope somewhere over the years he shared with his family the story about the slippery pork chop at the supper table at my house. So sorry to hear of his passing.

We are so sorry about the loss of Jimmy. Jimmy worked with my father at Nabisco during Jimmy's first decade with the company. Although my father retired in the late 1970's , we still periodically would see Jimmy through the years. He was a very good man and will be truly missed.В

I have known Jimmy since 1973. He was definitely a southern gentleman who never met a stranger. He was a great friend.В 
Joe, Nicole and family, I hadn't talked to Jimmy in a while and was shocked to hear of his death. He was a great guy. My condolences and prayers are with all of you.В
