Our sincere condolences to the Lintner family from both of us here in Simcoe.
My memories of Elwood ( Al ) began some 30 + years ago when I was invited by one of his friends and partner hunting camp owner Dan Cassidy to join them for a week of deer hunting. They never ever got rid of me.
Elwood was a very good mentor to many of us and tried his best to keep us all safe and to enjoy ourselves and respect nature and each other.
During his declining illness for the past couple of years his presence has been missed very much in the camp and is a hole that cannot be filled.
Thank you Joyce and Elwood for opening your home to us to stay in years past on our way up north to hunt.
We are all going to miss you Al.
Janice and Orville Zavitz Simcoe.

Our condolences to the Lintner family. It was my pleasure to have met Al through his son Steve. We hunted together in Oro for deer in the late shotgun season. Al was always a well respected hunter and one we all looked up to. I always enjoyed the camaraderie and the stories he shared. May he rest in peace.
Dan and Kerri-Lynne Salvatori
