Elvig is the retired general manager of Evergreen-Washelli Memorial Park and
Funeral Home in Seattle, WA. He was elected ICCFA President for 2007-2008. Paul also
served in many capacities in ICCFA through the years including as Secretary, and as
Fundraising Chair for the ICCFA PAC where he singlehandedly raised tens of thousands
of dollars for the association’s political action committee. He was the ICCFA’s “go-to”
witness who testified on many occasions before the Federal Trade Commission, House
and Senate Congressional committees, and most memorably on the “60 Minutes”
television show where he was interviewed by Anderson Cooper. Currently, Elvig
continues to chair the ICCFA State Association & Regulation Subcommittee.

The Hall of Fame award is the ICCFA’s highest honor. It was created to honor
those people who have demonstrated unselfish service and outstanding contributions to

the ICCFA, to the cemetery, funeral, cremation or memorialization service profession,
and, ultimately, to the public. Since its creation in 1965, it has been awarded to only 34
individuals.

Founded in 1887, the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association
is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery,
cremation, funeral and memorialization profession. Its membership is composed of more
than 9,100 rooftop locations and 20,000 professionals in the cemetery, funeral home and
crematory industries, as well as supplier and related businesses worldwide.
