Alvin Daniel Elshoff, age 96, of Huntingburg, Indiana, passed away to be with the Lord at 6:55 p.m., C.D.T., on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at Willow Dale Village in Dale.

He was born December 19, 1922, to Daniel and Naomi (Vogel) Elshoff on the family farm in Huntingburg where he was born, raised and lived for 96 years. He was united in marriage to LaVerne Trusty on November 7, 1953, at the E.U.B. Church in Huntingburg. Alvin was a retired farmer and rural mail carrier.

He was a dedicated member of the Huntingburg United Methodist Church, where he achieved a perfect Sunday school attendance for 25 years.

Alvin was a 1942 graduate of Holland High School; was a member of the Red Bird Mission; was a veteran of the United States Army; and was a life-member of the Holland American Legion Post #343. He volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Shared Abundance, Santa Claus Campground and Maple Grove Campground. His hobbies included walking, reading the Bible which he completed three times, and gardening.

Alvin was preceded in death by his wife, LaVerne Elshoff, who passed away on October 6, 2013; his parents; two sisters, Viola Elshoff and Ruth Flint; and was the last surviving cousin on the Elshoff side of the family.

He is survived by two daughters, Elizabeth (Russell Friedman) Elshoff of Huntingburg and Martha (David) Wooden of Franklin; one son, James (Chasity) Elshoff of Petersburg; six grandchildren, Amanda Kibby, Kathryn Smith-Wilder, Daniel Smith, Aaron Elshoff, Christina Collins and Jason Elshoff; and seven great-grandchildren.
