Emil was my mentor when I started my Real Estate career at Morris Real Estate services. I was new and very nervous. He made me feel comfortable and excited about my new career. He was always there willing to help me. I have owned my own office for 16 years now and I can honestly say that may not be the case if it wasn't for his caring and generosity. He also bowled in my Wednesday mixed league and I always looked forward to seeing him. He will be greatly missed.

Your valued guidance, recommendations, support and friendship - words cannot express how grateful I am for you. I will no longer hear your voice, but your messages will remain forever.

Emil will be sorely missed as a wonderful friend, awesome bowler and all around GREAT Man! He always was there with a smile and kind word, always thinking about others. As a friend I could not have asked for better and as a bowler, my gosh he was so knowledgeable and would share all he knew with others. God Bless you and Keep you always Emil.

Emil viola was a wonderful man and a dear friend, i knew if for over 20 years. I met him at st lucie lanes in the 90's, bowled with him for over. 15 years. He was one of the nicest men i have ever met.
He and his wife, joan daughter anna marie, were all good friends. I will miss his passing. Hopefully god will keep him forever.

Emil was a titan in the bowling industry - a major force in keeping league bowling, the sport he loved so much, just that, a sport. He worked diligently throughout his lifetime to uphold all phases of the sport with particular dedication to maintaining good sportsmanship. He was tireless in his efforts, creative and well versed. As an owner and operator, I know my friend will be sorely missed by all staff and bowlers at Saint Lucie Lanes, Emil's home away from home.

For those interested in attending, the Wednesday Night Mixed League will have a moment of silence and will throw the last ball for Emil at 6:30 PM, Wednesday, January 9th at Saint Lucie Lanes. All are welcome.
