Elmont began life in the tiny little town of Blue Water where as soon as he was able, he worked in the family sawmill. That's where he also taught himself to fly and began his lifelong love affair with aviation. He spent a lifetime working in the logging and aviation industries.
He was a tall man with a big smile, quick sense of humor, and love for aviation, inventing, dancing, and teasing.
He leaves a wife and numerous children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
