"Sacko" (Age 77)  

On Wednesday, November 7, 2012 died suddenly of heart failure. Born in Bamberg, Germany, Elmar immigrated to the United States in 1962. After a three-week visit to his old country he returned to his home in Falls Church, VA and died two days later. Elmar worked for the German Embassy for 29 years, retiring as "Hausmeister" in 2000. He was a lifelong railroad enthusiast.
He will be remembered by his loving relatives, his brother Otmar Sackerlotzky (Rotraud) of Cleveland, OH, his sister Hilde Kleinschroth of Kitzingen, Germany and seven nieces and nephews, 11 grandnieces and grandnephews. He will be buried in Germany.
Friends are invited to attend a memorial gathering to be held on his birthday at Barcroft Hills Condominium in Falls Church on February 16, 2013 at 3 p.m.
