WILMINGTON — Elwood Ehrle Sauer, 88, went home to be with the Lord Monday, Oct. 21, 2019. He was born Aug. 7, 1931, in Passaic, New Jersey, to the late William H. and Katherine (Ehrle) Sauer.

Elwood, a U.S. Army veteran who served during the Korean War, previously owned the George L. Ehrle Nursery in Englishtown, New Jersey. He served in many capacities at Old Tennent Presbyterian Church in Manalapan, New Jersey, before moving to North Carolina and was a member of Riley’s Creek Baptist Church in Rocky Point upon his passing. He loved to garden and bake bread. Elwood was a skillful woodworker making Christmas ornaments that are enjoyed by friends around the world.

Elwood is survived by his wife of 67 years, Helen (Cyran) Sauer; sons, William Sauer, and his wife, Linda, Arthur Sauer, and his wife, Shannon, and Kevin Brooks, and his wife, Crystal; daughter, Ellen Downie, and her husband, Bill; sister, Carolyn Connerton; grandchildren, Katherine Kowalski, and her husband, Michael, Joshua Sauer, and his wife, Jenna, Rachael Smith, and her husband, C.J., Helen Odell, and her husband, Josh, Will Downie, and his wife, Jeanette, Kate Downie, Maggie Downie, and her partner, Matt Atwater, Arthur Sauer, Henry Sauer, Ada Sauer, Kiersten Brooks and Bryson Brooks; and eight great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at noon, Saturday, Oct. 26, at Riley’s Creek Baptist Church, Rocky Point, with Pastor Art Sauer officiating and the U.S. Army performing military honors. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. A burial service will take place at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Old Tennent Presbyterian Church in Englishtown, New Jersey.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in his honor to Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401; or STRUT FOR KIDS Inc., P.O. Box 7693, Wilmington, NC 28406.
