Elmer was always active in the churches he attended, and served on the South Country Village board of directors and the Pinecrest Bible Camp board. He was an avid fan of both baseball and boxing, and faithfully cheered for the Toronto Blue Jays. He also enjoyed playing the game and played for the Hosham Flyers in his younger years.Dad was gentle and kind. He was a godly man who understood what life and faith meant especially in loving his wife, children and grandchildren. To see his great grandchildren brought a smile to his face. The family would like to send their heartfelt thanks to the staff at South Country Village, MHRH unit 5W and St. Joseph’s Carmel Hospice.
