Elmer and Maxine were our next-door neighbors on Jimmerson Lake for many years. They were such nice people and we shared many great laughs and memories together. They will both be missed!

Elmer will always have a special place in all the hearts of BSI employees. He made life fun, with all his little ways of kidding. A wit that was awesome. I last ran into Elmer and Max in Long Boat Key, when we were visiting the Schlorfs... several years after we had all retired from BSI. We had the best time. Elmer was a friend to all and will be treasured forever.

I’m so sad to see this ! I met him when I worked at Cameron Hospital in the cafeteria-he would come all the time smiles and laughing giving everyone a hard time and then when I went to work at Chubbys in Orland he was coming in there also. He would always walk in the door and Say “hey old bitty” with a big smile ! I’m sure going to miss that.
We had many discussions about his love of his life and brings a smile to me now knowing he is with her ......

Elmer was one of a kind.
Never met a stranger, and had such great wit.
He would always tease too.
He would tease my wife's dad, making sure we told him, that he was prettier!
It was always great hearing from him by phone.
He would boast with pride on his wonderful family, and ask how my wife Donna and I were doing.
So thankful I saved an old voicemail from him back in 2014.

We enjoyed Elmer and Maxine each Sunday with their warm friendly greeting. I will miss my buddy. They both helped start Christ Church and will be dearly missed. They will both be remembered with the wonderful memories and the cherished times we had with them both.

My Elmer now rest in piece with the Lord.
