Elwin E. "Elvis" Rothwell, age 58, of Battle Creek died peacefully at home on Thursday morning, November 19, 2015.  He was born in Battle Creek  on January 11, 1957, the son of Harold E. and Beulah R. (Henderson) Rothwell.  Elvis retired from Cello-Foil after more than 32 years of faithful service. 

 Elvis married the "Love of His Life", Kathy L.

Elvis was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Wendell & Wade, and his sister & her husband, Elaine & Dewey.

 Elvis was truly a family man and enjoyed spending as much time with his family as he could.  He also enjoyed being in the outdoors, fishing, camping and shooting his BB  Gun.  Elvis worked very hard throughout his life and enjoyed woodworking and working on his house.  Elvis was also known as a prankster with a great sense of humor.

 The family will receive friends 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., today at Farley Estes Dowdle Funeral Home & Cremation Care where a memorial service to celebrate Elvis's life will be held at 3:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, please consider making donations to the Mott Children's Hospital or the Ronald McDonald House at Mott Children's Hospital.  Personal messages for the family and/or favorite memories of Elvis may be placed at www.farleyestesdowdle.com.
