He was a police officer for the Ontario Provincial Police before retiring after years working Security at Ontario Power Generation. 

His favourite past times included fishing, golfing and spending as much time as he could at the cottage.  Loving husband for 44 years to Lorraine (nee Bryant). Elmer will be missed by his daughter Carin and her husband Rick, as well as his son Armas.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville for their care and compassion over the two months he remained in hospital prior to passing. 

A celebration of life will take place on Sunday November 10, 2019 at Walsh’s Snug in Newcastle, in the back room from Noon – 2 p.m.
