“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my father, Thomas Earl Emmer Sr. who suffered a stroke earlier this week at the age of 81.  Tom Emmer Sr. – “The Original” Tom Emmer as I liked to call him - was an incredible husband, father, grandfather, and member of his community. He will be missed by many, but remembered for his commitment to his God, his wife of 60 years, Patsy Emmer, his family, and his country.”
