He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army and after returning went on to be a welder with Sommerfeld Welders. Emery could fix anything and was a good woodworker; along with his brother he made many clocks and shelves. He was a long time member at Zion Lutheran Church and was also an usher and greeter for several years.
He was an avid Cubs fan and lived to see his Cubs finally win the World Series. He was such a friendly man and loved chatting with friends and family. Emery cherished his kids and grandkids and enjoyed playing many card games with them.
