Emery was born in Carencro on August 5, 1927. Upon finishing high school in 1944, he joined the U.S. Navy. He served honorably aboard the U.S.S. Massachusetts during WWII.
Emery liked to work; he worked hard and played hard. He was fond of saying, "If you want to kill time try working." His work ethic served him well in the parts department at both Louisiana Motors and Service Chevrolet until his retirement.
In his spare time Emery loved dancing and entering dance contests, fishing, hunting, and gardening. He tended to his garden until the age of 84.
Pallbearers will be Russell Ancelet, Steven Ancelet, Graham Ancelet, Lars Curry, Mark Vincent, and Connie Moran. Barry Duplechin will serve as an honorary pallbearer
