Elmer was born in Fort Belknap, MT, September 4th, 1942. Upon graduating high school in 1961, he joined the U.S. military in the Marine Corps division. In four years of services to this country, he fought in the Vietnam war and became a lance corporal E-3 with many honors on his badge. Elmer Cure was honorably discharged from the military and went into the horse-trading business that he was so well known for.

Later in life, he met Ina Thompson and together they raised five children. Elmer was a silently stern man who had a firm hand with a loving heart. He was one of the "good ole boys" through and through and was one hard-working son of a gun.

Elmer was preceded in death by many family and friends including parents, Allen Cure and Alice Doney; daughter Wanetta Thompson; grandson Michael Williams; and uncles Leonard Doney and Elmer Cure.

Elmer is survived by his life partner, Ina Thompson; his children Jennifer (Mike) Williams, Aleta (Scott) Payne, Marvin Cure, and Dale (Sam) Cure; sisters, Shirlee (Wayne) Brillhart and Carol Jean Koontz; aunt Edna Teske; grandchildren KayCee and Stephen (Kasey) Williams, McKenna, Shelbi, and Kyalin Payne, Everly Cure, Adrian and Dallas Fourstar; great-grandchildren, Tealynn, Azalea, Leiana, and Jackson Williams; cousins; nieces and nephews and other extended family and friends.

The family of Elmer "John" Allen Cure thanks everyone for their kind words, stories and love during this difficult time.
