Connon NVK announced the passing of Ed Elzinga, on Mar. 15, 2015.
Many clients of Connon NVK crossed pathways with Elzinga, as he was the front man delivering horticulture products to job sites or garden centres.  

Last fall Ed Elzinga was diagnosed with cancer.  He battled this disease with optimism and courage. Elzinga was a quiet man, always ready to do his job with a smile. Everyone who knew Elzinga, thought of him as a kind, gentle, humble, generous soul.

Connon staff wrote, “Ed began working for Connon Nurseries in the spring of 1976. He loved his job and loved to do it extremely well. Ed took pride in being able to get plants to customers safely and efficiently. No matter how difficult the job site was to get into, Ed would get it done! If he had to crane them in, he did it; if you asked him to spot the trailer in the most undesirable location, he would. Ed was always professional and took great care of everything that was entrusted to him.

“This would have been Ed’s 40th spring at Connon NVK.  

“We are comforted with the knowledge that he loved the Lord and is now resting in His arms.”

There will be a private funeral service, held with just family. To express condolences please email pauline@connonnurseries.com. Connon NVK will be sure that the family receives them.
