Farewell to Elmer Lynn Hauldren, better known as the Empire Carpet guy. He was 89.  He was also a decorated war hero, not to mention a baritone singer in the barbershop group, Chordiac Arrest. Five stars. 

Fact: Hauldren wrote the Empire jingle himself. 

Everybody sing! All together now: five, eight, eight... two, three-hundred... Empiiiiiiire!
