He enjoyed spending time and playing pool with Frank at the Eagles, playing music, and being at home in his happy place with his faithful dog, Annie, and his cats, Cleo and Mittens.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his special uncles, Grant and Jerry Edwards.

Elmer leaves behind his wife of 42 years, Mary "Prissy" Edwards; his special uncle, George Edwards; his two daughters, Sandy McIntyre and Wendy Eldridge; his step-son, Robert Crowthers (Melissa); his sisters, Shirley Davis (Ron), Diane Vickers (William), Cathy Kramer (Jerry), and Robin Shope (James); his grandchildren, Kaitlyn Guthrie, Gavin Guthrie, Taryn Theobald, Phillip Swick, Wadyn McIntyre, Taylor Crowthers, and Peyton Crowthers; and many nieces and nephews.
