February 6th, 1965 (Yorkton, SK) - Wednesday, June 12th, 2019 (Calgary, AB)
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our son, brother, uncle, and friend, Elroy Bilan. He was predeceased by his father Eli Alexander. He is survived by his mother Stella Bilan, brothers Dean and Steve, sister Kim, nephew Shae and extended family and friends.
At an early age Elroy’s parents moved from the family farm near Melville, SK to Calgary where he resided until his passing. He graduated from Western Canada High School and then attended SAIT for a short time. He then worked as a courier, in seismic, construction and other occupations. In his younger years he enjoyed playing hockey and dirt bike riding. One passion that never changed with him was his love of music.
You could always find him out riding his bicycle all over the city either by himself or with friends. When he wasn’t out bicycling or driving his car around you could usually find him building his next new and improved bicycle or working on a vehicle. When working on a vehicle it would usually be with his Dad. There were many trips taken with his Dad to any of the car part places in the city.
A Celebration of Life may be held at a later date. Donations may be made to AARCS – Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society
