Those who knew Elmer knew he enjoyed a few great things in life, whether it was being the Captain of his all family crew upon the Shajenka for the lobstering/fishing seasons, his love of animals whether it was his kitties at home or the wild birds that he kept well fed on the Island or at his cottage in New Burne and his love of hunting, whether it was during the open season or on television. Just like fishing, he also enjoyed hunting with a partner, someone to help drag or to listen to an amazing story he had at the ready to share. He also loved and cherished his family, he always kept in contact and always had there well being on his mind, he liked to stay in contact over the phone or in person when he had the chance for a visit. “Life is something precious to be treasured everyday, but like a candle in the wind its light can fade away.”
