‘Empire Carpet Man’ Elmer Lynn Hauldren dead at age 89 - Chicago Sun-Times
Many of My readers here at Eddie's Railfan Page, are actually former Chicagoans now living in other citties and sates here in North America.
Although most of My own photos and news updates I post are very positive, sometimes I
also assume the responsibility to keep My friends who view Eddie's Railfan Page, posted with local Chicago area news stories that unfortunately are occasionally sad.
For the former Chicagoans who weren't aware of it...
Elmer Lynn Hauldren, the man who was famous on local Chicago television as
the TV commercial "Pitchman" for Empire Carpeting...unfortunately passed away on
April 27th, 2011 from natural causes at the age of 89.
The Empire Carpet Man as He was known as....will be missed by many who enjoyed
those occasionally comical Empire Carpet commercials from the 1970's until
Empire Carpetings 5-8-8 2-3-Hundred jingle, is still very memorable today.
