Obituary of Elroy Alfred Ulmer

Elroy Ulmer January 1st, 1943 - November 12th, 2022 Elroy Alfred Ulmer, son of Ludwig & Elfrieda Ulmer (nee Schweitzer) was born on the family farm approximately 5 miles out of Neudorf, Sask on January 1, 1943. He was baptized on January 10, 1943. Elroy’s parents moved to Neudorf when he was very young, he started school there, but his parents wintered in Vancouver, BC so Elroy attended school, both in Saskatchewan and BC. He was confirmed at Hope Lutheran Church in Port Coquitlam, BC, on April 14, 1957. He worked at Lowenberg’s garage in Neudorf, Sask and Harmel’s Shell Service in Vancouver, BC as well as helping his father with grain farming. On August 31, 1963, he married Beverley Gabel of Yorkton, Sask in Bethany Evangelical Brethren Church in Melville, Sask. The couple lived in Vancouver for the first few months and then moved back to Saskatchewan, where they were blessed with their daughter Terri on June 13, 1964 and remained in Neudorf for the next 4 years. During this time Elroy worked with his father-in-law, and on his own in the land clearing business. In 1968 the family moved back to BC where Elroy worked in a cedar mill for a short time and then ran his own power washing business for a few years. He spent his last working years with the BC Government and the City of Coquitlam in various positions. His favourite jobs were running backhoe and the snowploughs. He retired in 2002 and was able to enjoy more of what he loved to do best which was traveling, cruising, boating, fishing, and doing bike trips with family and friends. Elroy’s proudest achievement was building an old McCormick tractor from parts of two old tractors, with his nephew George Garbe. Elroy was hardworking, a good provider for his family and never had trouble getting a job or keeping it. He was well liked by family, friends, and co-workers. Elroy passed away November 12, 2022, at the age of 79. He was predeceased by his parents, Ludwig & Elfrieda Ulmer, his sister Norine and husband Frank Issel, brother George and wife Ione Ulmer, brother Paul Ulmer, sister Elsie and husband Herb Litzenberger.
