Elmo G. Hemmerich

May 20, 2018


Age 87, formerly of Brookville, of Vandalia, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at Hospice of Dayton. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harry & Daisy; brothers, Joyce, Don & Johnny; sister, Olis; grandson, Neil Lindsey; great-grandson, Alex Rhoads. He retired after 40 years of service with Fryman & Kuck Construction. He will always be remembered for his skill as a carpenter and a love and passion for his craft.
