Larry Elmer was born in Utica, New York to Ruth and Bernard Elmer. He attended Marist College. He joined the Navy in 1975 as a nuclear submariner on the U.S.S. James Madison, SSBN 627. He was Honorably discharged in 1982 and went to work for TXU. His career was diverse. He became an Electrical Training Instructor at the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Station. He worked in increasingly challenging Information Technology roles prior to leaving TXU in 1998 having worked his way up to Director of Information Technology. He ultimately retired in April, 2013 as the Sr. Director of IT Infrastructure for the University of Texas Systems.

Larry was a patriot, a music enthusiast, a skilled practitioner of martial arts, a winning slot car racer, a talented guitar player, a wonderful chef, a licensed ham radio operator, a dedicated and skilled instructor, an accomplished woodworker and a lover of sports cars. More importantly, he was loving and warm and funny and caring in his relationships with family and friends. Larry was a devoted husband, son, father, brother, grandfather, friend and an adored son in law. He loved entertaining. He and his wife of 21 years, Debbi, traveled frequently and together, enjoyed life in general.

He is survived by his wife Debbi of Holly Lake Ranch, his children, Christine Trowell and her husband, Aaron of North Richland Hills; Marcus Elmer of North Richland Hills; Regan Mort and her husband, Paul, of Ft Worth, Tucker Cappella of Casper, Wyoming, and his mother, Ruth Elmer, of Syracuse, New York.

He was predeceased by his father Bernard Edward Elmer and by his sister in law, Kellie Elmer.

The family would like to thank the doctors and caregivers who traveled the cancer journey with Larry and Debbi. In particular, we are immeasurably grateful to Dr Sasha Vukelja of Tyler who was his medical warrior, Dr Warren Abrameit of Tyler, Dr Nabil Choueri formerly of Tyler and the many gracious and caring nurses, physicians assistants and schedulers who cared for us and loved us. Additionally, we thank Hospice of East Texas for their caring support during the past 2 months. You all do a demanding and difficult job and there is a special place for all of you in our hearts.
