Emory “Sarge” Messersmith

On April 5, 2011 Emory (Sarge) Messersmith peacefully left this life to continue his journey on the next plane of existence. He is a man that will be missed by the many lives he has touched. Emory spent his life living the life most people only dream about. He has been a real estate broker, a cowboy, a reptile expert at Silver Springs, Florida, and most recently a student and teacher at Smith’s Tae Kwon Do. He most enjoyed teaching and watching each student grow. During his last days, these memories were often on his mind.

He was a Vietnam veteran that flew with the 498th & 237th Meds and who was very proud of his service and of his country. He was a generous man with an infectious smile and a great sense of humor and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
