High School. After high school, he joined the United States Navy and was stationed in Norfolk, VA where he served 8 years for his country. Emory returned back home and was employed by the City of Dayton as a life guard, then a supervisor in the Aquatic Park/Recreation which he enjoyed for many years until he retired.
Emory was a loving father and devoted friend to many that knew him. He was full of life and enjoyed the fun time with family and friends when they got together. He would always have that big smile on his face with that witty since of humor that would make people laugh often even if he weren’t feeling well. He would love to research things that he didn’t know and understand especially medicine to challenge and irritate the doctor.
He enjoyed music , dancing and trying to sing when he couldn’t carry a note, but he would sing from his heart.
