Elmo spent his entire life being a steward of the land. He was a Jack of all trades! If it needed to be fixed, he just fixed it; from plumbing to electrical, and all in between.
He enjoyed collecting belt buckles, tractors, and attending the Seven Valley’s rodeo. He was one of the founders of the Seven Valley’s Rodeo Association and was part of the rodeo for 50+ years. His main love through was attending his children’s and grandchildren’s school activities.
He was a faithful member of 62 years with the Morning Star United Methodist Church. He was also a member of the American Legion Bryson-Booker Post 59 in Callaway.
Elmo enjoyed visiting with folks, being with family, and will be so very missed.
