What a great guy. Always smiling and sharing it with everyone he met.
I will always remember hair cuts looking at "One Eyed Pete" painted on one of his mirrors and riding the horse board that sat on his barber chair. Later in life I was privileged enough to go on may coon hunts. I remember sitting by a camp fire cooking sausage on a stick and listening to the dogs when all of a sudden Elmer would yell "TREE'd!" and away we went running like crazy trying to keep up with long legged Elmer. He would out pace us by quite a distance. It was crazy running around in the dark with flashlights trying to duck the branches and keep him in site. It was always a good time.
I also remember us following Elmer in his old ford station wagon he used to haul the dogs in and he had a live coon in a cage but with no dogs. We were moving closer to the dogs that were out on the hunt. As we were making a corner Elmer hit the breaks, put the car in park and jumped out of the car and slammed the door. It was then we found out that coon got out of the cage and was on the passenger side floor boards. It was like the keystone cops. I am not sure how he recaptured the coon but it was hilarious!
I am sure he and my Dad are running the dogs in heaven!

Rest in peace my old friend!

My sympathies to the family. Elmer was a huge part of Holdingford for me while growing up. Always a smile on his face and a joke to make you smile. What a loss for the town!

and boy could he roast a pig...yum!!

What an entertaining and wonderful man. I still have fond memories of trying to keep up with him when he would take off when his hounds "tree" barked! And the great food Mary would lay out for us in the middle of the night when we were done coon hunting.
I still remember Elmer arguing with Dad to let me have more hair and not give me a buzz cut when I was in my teens. It didn't work! I can remember this like I was sitting in his chair yesterday!
Via Con Dios, Elmer! God bless!
