Dennis Elmer - Passed but not Forgotten.

Today, April 9 2016, we got a request from Dennis's daughter, Kirsti, to join the school Facebook page. It was sad news. Dennis has gone to the senior school in the sky! Photos and tributes were shared and I'll transfer what  I can here, for posterity. Here's Dennis Elmer as he was in 2014 at the school reunion in Cleobury Mortimer.

Kirsti Louise Elmer Hello everyone sorry to post this on here but i am Dennis Elmer daughter and have some awful news sadly this morning my dad passed away he was very peaceful and surrounded by family. Any memories anyone has of him or pictures please contact me on here or by inbox me many thanks for accepting me to the group xx

Kirsti Louise Elmer
Thank u, he has 5 children 4 girls and a boy 10 grandchildren and one on the way, he was a loving husband to our mum for 25 years and took her away to Tunisia last year as a surprise.
He lived for his football team the sky blues also enjoyed fishing and darts.
He was a very private and stubborn man but very very loving.

Martyn Hawthorn Kirsti thank you for letting us all know he sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. The name is familiar so what years was your Father at the school as I may have some photos in one of my boxes.

David Partridge Dennis would have left in '64

Martyn Hawthorn I was trying to work it out as I think he was in the year after me and I think in Mortimer House. He would be about 68 I think.

David Partridge Mortimer, the year before me which would make him 67 or 68.

Stuart McDonald Sad to read of Dennis's death. I don't believe I knew him as a little before my time. My sympathies to his family.

David Partridge Very sad news. I remember him well from school, we were both in Mortimer House, he was a year older than me. He was rather cool with his quiff so I took it as a great honour when he suggested we swop my sloppy brown jumper for his chelsea boots for a few weeks. That would be about 52 years ago. Best wishes to the family.

Trev Teasdel Kirsti - Dennis was at the last reunion at the school a couple of years ago and we had a chat. Very sorry to hear this. I think he was a bit older when i was at the school and in Mortimer. He was one of the good ones. Life is a journey and you go as far as you can - that's all you can do. Be strong Kirsti - your mum too and thanks for letting us know. We like to honour our own - will see if i can find any photos with him on.

Kirsti Louise Elmer Thank u that would be lovely

Trev Teasdel So far I haven't found one of Dennis - I thought there would be one of him at the reunion at least but i think he came after the photos were taken. If anyone remebers one of him and knows where it is on the blog - do post it.

Trev Teasdel Kirsti has posted one of Dennis at the reunion on the other blog - the photo i coujld find and I've found one of him in the Cross country team - will post them on here in second!

Paul Nicholas Williamson Dennis was a very good sportsman, plus the fact we played in the same football team after we left Cleobury along with a few more. The team was Phildown Dynamos later to become Phildown Henley when Dennis was the top goal scorer for them.Very sorry to hear the news.

Kirsti Louise Elmer Thank you for the lovely memories he loved his football
