Obituary for Nathaniel S. Elkins, Sr.

February 27, 2017
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania



Nathaniel S. Sr. on February 27, 2017. loving husband of Eleta, loving father of Nathaniel ,Jr. (Anna), Linda Henderson (Wayne), Marc ( Lynn), Leon ( Marie) Elkins.
Loving Pop Pop to 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Brother to Harry Elkins and uncle to 5. 
He was proud to say he worked at General Electric in Philadelphia until his retirement in 1997 .

Dad loved life and enjoyed fishing ,gardening (  he loved his roses and flowering cactus) cooking( he made the best mac and cheese ,scrapple and scalloped potatoes),taking trips,
car shows, the beach, watching the Superbowl and first and foremost spending time with his family. 
Although he loved Philadelphia, he was a Dallas Cowboy fan and wasn't afraid to let EVERY Eagles fan know!
He also enjoyed watching classic movies, one of his favorites being The Wizard of Oz.( he truly was a kid at heart)

He had a great sense of humor and had some of the best one liners you ever heard! He had a kind heart and always tried to help if he could.

We all knew it was his time to go but that didn't make it any easier. Although we're glad your resting easier now, the heartbreak is unbearable.
We love and miss you and know that one day we'll see you again. We know you'll be watching over us until then.
