Only be as loyal to the company as the company is loyal to you.Norman Stevenson

Norman Stevenson was a good man.  That's the phrase I hear most when talking to the folks who held him in their hearts.

He took great joy in life, and lived it well.  He loved his friends and shared freely of his wit and intelligence.  He was philosophical and enjoyed discussing or debating just about anything.

Please share your stories or comments about how my father touched your life.  I know that my brother and I will both cherish these facets of him as the years go by.

In lieu of flowers or cards, please make donations directly to the Gainesville Center for Independent Living. This organization meant a great deal to Dad, and he devoted much of his later years to the improvement of accessibility for disabled folks.

Judjie Good bye August 18, 2009
I was saddened to hear that Elph had passed.  I always refered to him as the pun man when speaking of him as I did often.   He was a quick wit and always ready to share in a pun contest.  Anything Goes has not been the same since he left.  I know that he loved the fact that he had been married for so many years to the love of his life.  He did agree to marry me however, when I made my first million....pogo tokies... that is many years ago.   Hopefully he is still punning for fun with the one that he loved.

your father was a true gentleman....I loved his wit..I used to chat with him & the others in Word Whomp, "Anything Goes".  He will be sadly missed.
sammer To Elph April 8, 2008
I will miss Elph so much. He was always there in the "anything goes" chat room. He was so could ask him anything. He had been everywhere. He always had a witty reply. Wit and simplicity = elegance. Your father was a very elegant man. I am sad  he is gone from here. My sincere condolences. sammer

I only recently heard of elph's passing. (how can he be anything but 'elph' to us?)

I've been trying to compose a message of condolence that would be as eloquent as some of the earlier messages but, finally, can only speak what is in my heart.  I was offline for quite some time, helping during the illness and passing of my own Father, returning only to hear of elph's passing.  It breaks my heart to think we'll never again hear the wisdom and wit of that wonderful man.  A long time ago he told me that he "looked sort of like Ernest Hemmingway"...and from then on, I began calling him "Papa".  I hope Papa's heavenly abode is in the vicintity of my Dad's...I think they'll like each other and will keep each other entertained.   I believe I'll see them both again some day.  My deepest, most heartfelt condolences to Norman's family...your pain is shared by a lot of people.
