Remembering Paw Paw Elvis
Who remembers seeing Paw Paw Elvis while traveling through Paw Paw, Michigan? Seeing him in parades and even on postcards, some thought he was a myth. Now, he's a legend. Earl "Elvis" Cook passed away September 8th 2014, from a stroke but is still talked about and missed by residents and visitors alike. Remember going by the Little Caesars and seeing the sign out front where he would always be sitting. Here are a few videos to help remember him and to share a local legend with those who didn't know him.
