Elroy served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was an active member of the Germantown Senior Center and the Dayton VA “VIST” program. He and his wife Shirley (Marenchin) Miller lived in West Milton, Ohio for 20 years, where they built and renovated many houses and raised their daughters.

Shirley and Elroy relocated to Fayetteville, Arkansas where they lived for 30 years, continuing their renovation projects and building a pottery studio. Elroy was most at home gardening, working outside, and helping others.  He was a fixture at the Fayetteville Farmers Market, where he sold Shirley’s pottery and made kids laugh.
