Alan Elkin of Advance in Baltimore passes

Sad news today as I’ve learned that Alan Elkin, CEO of Advance in Baltimore has passed away.

I met Alan and his wife Lois and son Jeffrey (Advance’s president) many times over the years. Advance is a force in the Baltimore/DC market and I’m sure many of you reading this from the area knew him.

The picture above shows the Elkin family. They sent it to me for my Old Blood New Blood family page a few years ago.

My sympathy and prayers go out the Elkins. Here’s the obituary.
