Elwin was a third generation brick mason by trade, architect by profession, and skilled chef and wood worker by hobby. In 1949 on the outskirts of Troy, he designed and built the family home, doing all of his own construction. Over the next 65 years he would continue to design and build: outbuildings, a clay tennis court, an arboretum, and outdoor art. In 1976, Elwin built the Poestenkill Power Corporation hydroelectric project, which generated electricity on the property for many years. In his 70’s and 80’s he became a proliic furniture maker for his family. A renaissance man and conservationist, Elwin was ahead of his time. It was in the Navy where he learned to play the game of cribbage, which later in life became the basis of raucous family tournaments. He was an avid Red Sox fan, loathed the Yankees, and loved watching women’s and men’s college basketball. He was a skilled tennis and squash player, and his booming voice could be heard among friends who were “compelled” to wear their tennis whites. Elwin had a sharp mind, quick wit, and was a man of deep family tradition; none of his children or grandchildren have ever missed a Christmas at the family home. A big-hearted man, generous friend, and devoted husband and father, he will be deeply missed. A private family memorial will be held later in the spring. | | Pauline Culver Davis was born June 9, 1922, in Corbin, Kentucky to Barton and Orena (Ellison) Culver.
