      Sorry to hear that Eloy passed. I worked at Kennecott in Mcgill with him and he was an excellent Skimmer and a joy to work with. He could swing a 16 pound hammer better than most of us younger guys.He was good at any kind of work and I had a lot of respect for him. I will miss his sincere smile and the great example he was to me. His family can be proud of
