It is with heavy hearts that Mayor Van Broughton and the Elkins Parks and Recreation Commission share the news of the passing of our Parks Director Phil Gainer. Phil suffered a heart attack yesterday while hunting, a hobby he greatly enjoyed. Our love and sympathy goes out to Phil’s wife, children, granddaughter, extended family and friends during their time of sorrow. Information about services and other opportunities to help and support the family will be shared as soon as they become available.
