R.I.P., Mr. Tony Ortiz

November 1st, 2017 – 10:59 pm

We’re extremely saddened to learn of Tony Ortiz’ passing. We know that he had been suffering from the devastating effects of his condition for the last few years and just wanted to pay tribute to ELP’s Number One Fan and Archivist. Tony, you contributed much to this site, and were the one who got Greg to sign our Ladies of the Lake tee shirt all those years ago. We owe you a debt of gratitude and wish you Godspeed on your final journey. You kept the ELP flame burning bright and never wavered in your dedication, all the way to the end. There’ll never be another like you. Rest in peace.

~ Eileen, Kate, and Terry
Ladies of the Lake
