    Sorry to hear of Elmer’s passing. He was a friend and colleague at PCHS. Elmer was a man who truly had the best interests of the kids at PCHS at heart. He will be truly missed.

    Elmer Huff was one of the finest individuals that I have ever known. His guidance during my last two years at PHS helped navigate me through life and strive to be the best that I could be. I know that Elmer has been received with open arms in heaven.
