Obituary For William J. Elwell II

William James Elwell ll
Born May 22, 1964.
Died after a courageous and short illness.

Peabody - Billy, as he was affectionately known, spent his life devoted to his daughter, raising her alone since birth. He was a plumber, which he enjoyed, taking Jessica on many jobs. He made sure his daughter knew no matter what she could do anything! He taught her that life is made up of different people and regardless of each other’s differences, you be kind and love to the fullest. He enjoyed taking rides and taking his lovie (his nickname for Jessie) to many different places. The two of them were inseparable.
