He has faithfully served the Lord since that time. He attended the Church of God in Jackson, Michigan and served in various capacities as Sound Recording Technician, Adult Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent and Choir Member. Elmer not only had a form of Godliness, but he was completely sold out and dedicated to the Lord. Elmer married the love of his life, Michele Yvonne Robinson, on October 20, 1990. To this union were born eight beautiful children: Jonathan Elmer, Taylor Michele, Melissa Marie, Austin Bradley, Ean Jacob, Benjamin Michael and Daniel Walter.

He fought a good fight, he finished his course, he kept the faith and is now enjoying the beauties of heaven. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Mary Margaret Warren; his eldest daughter, Melissa Warren; four sisters, Lorraine Taggart, Marie Warren, Hattie Warren and Theresa Flanagan. He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife of almost 27 years, Michele Yvonne Warren; seven children, Jonathan Elmer, Taylor Michele, Melissa Marie, Austin Bradley, Ean Jacob, Benjamin Michael and Daniel Walker Warren.
