Elmer La Grande Moulton, 92, of Baker City, died Sept. 24, 2005, at his home.

At his request, there will be no funeral.

Elmer was born on Oct. 22, 1912, at La Grande, the first child of Harry and Cora Moulton. Elmer grew up at Walla Walla, Wash. He received his early education at Walla Walla and then went on to Business School at Boise.

Elmer married Georgia Mildred Rose in 1939 and they had two daughters: Rosemarie and Darla Jean. They later divorced.

Elmer worked for Pacific Fruit and Produce and Baker-La Grande Grocery as a traveling salesman and delivery man for many years.

In 1950, he married Phyllis Winters of La Grande. They had one son, Philip. Elmer operated a Union Gas Station on 10th Street for several years and then moved to the Richfield Station on the corner of Main and Campbell streets (the current location of Papa Murphy’s).

After his retirement in about 1980, he worked at Basche-Sage and the Baker County Library. He then traveled around visiting family and friends for about 10 years. He had been in failing health these last six years.

Elmer was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Phyllis, who died in 2004; two brothers; and two sisters.

Survivors include his daughter and son-in-law, Ron and Rosemarie Bissonnett of Baker City; daughter, Jean Peterson of Kennewick, Wash.; son, Philip Moulton of Baker City; nine grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter.
