Dan "Dutch" Elmer

Does everyone know
What’s behind the fake smiles
The memories that go on for miles
The lifetime of hunting
Oh, the stories I’d tell
Give me your hand, mine needs to be held
Don’t say goodbye
It leaves me no hope
Give me your hand, “kaleidoscope”
Think of me often
I’m hot, now I’m cold
Come close and give me your hand to hold
Don’t cry for me
Wipe your tears away
If I could stay you know I would stay
When missing me 
I’ll always be near
Think of me “kaleidoscope” you will hear



Dan "Dutch" Elmer passed away peacefully at home April 16th, 2021 with his loving wife by his side after a long 4yr battle with melanoma.

We cannot express the gratitude we have for every individual that has supported us through his courageous journey. Thank you. 

He is survived by his wife of 50yrs (he would say 51yrs), his daughter Laura and son-in-law Brian, his son Zack and daughter-in-law Sienna, and grandson Jakob.

Per his request, no services will be held.

Kaleidoscope forever.

Always had a good time talking with Dutch at the warehouse window sharing hunting stories and good places to hunt. Always enjoyed hearing his laugh and his smile through the years. Big as life! Amazing man!
