Armin M. Elkins

ELKINS ARMIN M., DDS Age 88, of Berwyn, PA, passed away peacefully on May 18th, 2022, surrounded by his family. Armin was the beloved husband of Adele (neé Berkowitz); devoted father of Beth Cutler, Wayne Elkins, and Alexis Elkins; and much adored grandfather of Aaron Cutler (Mariana), Samantha Cutler, Jacob and Emma Elkins. He is also survived by his loving brother and sister-in-law, Dov Peretz and Maxine Elkins. He was born on Nov. 11th, 1933 in Philadelphia to the late Bertha and Edward Elkins. He graduated from Central High School, University of Pennsylvania, and Temple University Dental School. Following dental school, he served as a Captain in the US Army and was stationed in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. He practiced dentistry in Abington for 45 years until his retirement. He not only knew how to help his patients care for their smile, but he also knew how to make them smile with his kindness. Despite his degree and meticulous skill, he had an insatiable sweet tooth and legendary candy drawer. Armin enjoyed the game of tennis, both as a player and as a spectator. So much so, that he delighted in taking his youngest daughter, Alexis, on annual trips to the US Open. He shared a love of cars and motorcycles with his only son, Wayne and frequented Broadway matinees with his eldest daughter, Beth. He developed a passion for the opera later in life, much to the pleasure of his wife Adele, who is a classically trained pianist. Better late than never. Although Armin had movie star good looks, he preferred to be in the audience of a dark theater, with his family, watching a great film or taking in a show. He had an abundance of lifelong friends and continued making new ones up until the very end. His sweet and gentle nature was cherished by all who got to know him. Adele was the love of his life and he took great pride in their family. Funeral Services are private. The family respectfully suggests that contributions in his memory be made to the American Friends of Magen David Adom at: (afmda.org). www.levinefuneral.com
