A confirmed bachelor, Uncle Wissy as he was known, was a gregarious fun loving guy with a great sense of humor and very handsome much like his father whom people refered to as "The handsome gardener" (quote: Mary Kate (Egan) Eltzholtz). He loved sports, most especially hand ball and was an excellent prize fighter winning "THE GOLDEN GLOVES" in boxing.
He served his country in the War in the South Pacific where he contracted malaria and was to suffer the effects of this disease for the rest of his life.
"Wissy" Quick to share a joke and a laughwith a glint his blue eyes and most of all a big hug for his mother, Mary Kate Eltzholtz! Loved by all!
