Elmer F. "Rep" Repschlaeger passed away on October 30, 2023 at the age of 96. He is survived by his son: Rod (Marsha) of El Dorado, CA; his daughter: Roxann (the late Don) Swank of Harrison, OH. Elmer was preceded in death by his loving wife, Shirley Repschlaeger; parents: Herman & Lucinda Repschlaeger; four sisters and four brothers. "Rep" was a nickname that he had growing up in the Northeast Nebraska for his baseball abilities. A pro career was passed up in favor of the business world. At age 31, he left Nebraska with his young family to take a sales position with DeKalb, the hybrid seed company in Pontiac, IL. Subsequent promotions took him to Ashland, OH, Algona, IA and finally York, PA, to manage the thirteen state Eastern Region. He retired in 1989 after 35 years with DeKalb. Several years later, he and Shirley moved to Harrison, OH to be near their daughter, Roxann. Elmer was an avid golfer and participated in several club championships. He and Shirley spent twenty winters in Florida enjoying fishing, golf and the warm weather. After Shirley's passing, he became a resident of Ridgewood Health Campus in Lawrenceburg, IN and later moved to Harrison Trails and was one of the first residents at the Harrison Facility. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Harrison.
Memorial Service will be held at Brater Winter Funeral Home on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 3:00 PM with Rev. Dr. Joshua Long presiding.
Memorials may be made to the Harrison First Presbyterian Church.
