Alvis Ray “Elmo” Shrewsbury, 45, of Bud, WV, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 17, 2022. He was born on September 30, 1976 in Mullens, WV a son of Anna Perry Shrewsbury and the late Willie “Alvie” Shrewsbury. Alvis worked on and off in the timber industry ever since he was eighteen years old and devoted himself to his family. He loved them with his whole heart and was fiercely protective of them. He enjoyed coon hunting, walking, and playing with his grandbabies. He loved being outdoors, spending quality time with his family, and his Mommy. He was the master operator at every Fourth of July cookout and loved putting on a show. He could tell jokes and stories that would make you laugh so hard you cried. When Alvis would walk into a room, there was never a dull moment. He knew how to make you feel important and loved, and he would remind you just how much every time he would see you. Alvis was a good son and brother, a wonderful Father, an incredible Poppaw, and an amazing friend. He was kind and he gave freely. He would give anyone the shirt off of his back and say that he didn’t like wearing one anyway. Alvis was not just a family man to his blood relatives, but to anyone he met. He had a whole community of people he called his brothers and sisters. Anyone who was lucky enough to know him truly loved him. Alvis will be deeply missed but his legacy will live on through his children and grandchildren.
In addition to his father he is preceded in death by his step-father Amon Ward Shrewsbury, his step-mother Sandra Kay Shrewsbury, and a brother Darrell Monroe Shrewsbury.
