Today would have been Elmore’s 91st Birthday.. What makes this birthday different, it is the day he is finally buried. Elmore died over three years ago, on August 20, 2013, but it was his wish to be buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Birmingham, Michigan, a little over a mile from his house in Bloomfield Township. It took three years, but Greenwood finally opened up new plots, allowing Elmore to have his wish and be buried there.
Elmore’s ashes were interred at 10:30 AM this morning, in a brief ceremony lead in prayer by Monsignor John P. Zenz, Pastor of Holy Name Church in Birmingham. In attendance, under a red canopy, were several members of Elmore’s family.
Elmore grave marker gives his name and the years of his birth and death. At the bottom, is the inscription, “The Dickens of Detroit,” a phrase used to describe Elmore over the years that he actually found a bit puzzling. In a 1997 article in the San Jose Mercury News, he said about the tag: "That has more to do with alliteration than truth, … I wonder what they would have called me if I was from Buffalo."
For those of you planning a visit, Elmore is buried in Section G, Lot R, Grave 2.
