What a perfect picture chosen for Elmer’s obituary. He looks so alive and has that mischievous smirk that portrays his radiance of warmth, kindness and fun.
Meeting and having a chat with Elmer at the curling rink is something we thoroughly enjoyed. He was extremely devoted to cheering his family on at curling bonspiels. He was very proud of their curling expertise.
Known as the “Joke Man”, to this day, we are puzzled at how he was able to accumulate so many unique, entertaining, clean, funny jokes.
R.I.P. Elmer. You’ll be missed!
Sincere condolences to all of Elmer’s family.
