Aloysius Eland

MADISON — Aloysius “Ted” Eland passed away peacefully Saturday, August 3, 2013, after a sudden illness. Ted was a lifelong Ohio resident who never lived far from his childhood home on East Main Street in Madison Village.

Ted eventually served as the Assistant Business Manager of the Local and later was elected to his first of two consecutive terms as Business Manager of Local 673. In 2012, Ted was recognized for his 55 years of membership in Local 673. Ted held firm to his strong union beliefs his entire life.

Ted graciously gave his time and leadership talents to other causes. Notably, Ted was a charter member of the Board of Trustees of Leadership Lake County from 1986 – 1994.   

Upon his retirement, Ted traveled the country extensively with his wife Jill. In the past 15 years, Ted and his wife enjoyed spending time in their summer place at Holiday Camp Lands in Andover, Ohio.

Ted was preceded in death by his father, Aloysius Eland; his mother, Kathryn Eland; and a brother, Lawrence Eland. Ted will also join in heaven his infant son, Daniel.

Ted is survived by his wife of 54 years, Jill (Izzarelli); his brothers, Robert of Texas and Donald of Madison.
