David Gale Elmore, was born June 19, 1939 in Ekalaka MT, the son of Bert and Madeline (Butler) Elmore. Growing up, he attended Foster School through 8th grade and Carter County High School, graduating in 1957. David enlisted with the US Army, serving two years as a medic at West Point, NY. He continued in the reserves for four years and was honorably discharged in August 1963.
David was married to Jeannette Biel in 1965, in Baker, MT. The couple was blessed with three children, Cynthia, Charity and Shane. David was a carpenter most of his life, living in the Baker and Bowman area. David enjoyed cooking at Green Acres and the Legion Club where Prime Rib was his specialty. He also enjoyed hunting.

It was only fitting that David being the true veteran that he was, gave his final salute and was honorably called home on Memorial Day.
