He was an only son and a brother to 4 sisters, a golden child, a true friend. He was very talented, dreamed of studying graphic design and visual communication. Elroi would make sure to pamper his nephews every time he went on vacation, buying them surprises and sweets. He was 20 years old at the time of his death.

When Elroi was on leave from the army, he would sit down to eat Beet Kubbeh, that was the food that characterized him. Everyone knew that if there was Beet Kubbeh, it meant Elroi was coming.
