Elmer Eugene Scharaswak Sr


Elmer Eugene Scharaswak Sr, aged 83 of Belding, went to join his family in heaven on July 14th, 2023.  He was preceded in death by his son Gary Wayne Scharaswak, daughter Carol Ann Scharaswak, and daughter in law Angie Scharaswak.   He is survived by his wife, Martha Scharaswak Sr, and his sister Ruth Badder; his children Sharon (Jim) Annable, Marie (Thomas) Spickler, Elmer E Scharaswak Jr., and Marti Scharaswak; his grandchildren Amy (Doug Carney) Scharaswak, Heather (Jeff) Perry, Cora (Jacob) Wielinga, Greg (Katrina) Scharaswak, Matthew Spickler, and Allison (Steve Endres) Annable.  He was also loved by his best friend in life, George Rinard, and many dogs, including his current, Dexter.

Elmer enjoyed spending time outside, doing activities like wood splitting, drinking coffee on the porch with his dogs, and working on cars and tractors. He also enjoyed picking on his wife, kids, and grandkids. He spent his life working on farms, as a milwright at King Milling, and as a mechanic at L&A RentAll after he retired from the mill.

His children fondly remember family road trips where they would be rewarded with sandwiches and Milky Way Candy bars, a lot of joking and laughing and fun times. Dad shared a lot of knowledge which they still use in their lives, especially mechanically.  They also recall times when the family went camping, and he shared his love of animals with his children.

Cremation has taken place.  A private graveside service will be held for immediate family. Interment at Oakwood Cemetery.

  1. Uncle Elmer will be missed. He was a very important person in my life and loved him dearly.

  2. I would like to express my sorrow for your loss to Martha and family.

    Elmer was my neighbor for the past 33 years, but to me, he was more than a neighbor. He was a good friend. I never heard the man say no. There isn’t anything he hasn’t done. He helped me alot with anything that needed repairs. I will miss his advice, his sense of humor, and his stories of the past. Rest in peace my friend.
