I was one of the lucky electricians that had the privilege to work alongside Elmer on quite a few jobs. Many times young family members were on the job with him (grandchildren). They always showed the upmost respect to grandfather. Rest In Peace Elmer, you influenced more than just your family. What a great guy. Wally Wilkemeyer
