Prior to retirement, Emery worked as a carpenter for Local #1386. An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting, fishing and especially camping at the lake with his family and friends. He had a passion for music and dancing and could often be found with a guitar in hand picking away. A jokester, Emery had a sense of humor that everyone loved, and he was sure to make you smile any chance he could. His greatest love of all truly was his family, especially his grandchildren, and he looked forward to spending as much time with them as he could. His love, sense of humor and devotion to his family will be greatly missed.
