Empire Carpet Man Elmer Lynn Hauldren has Passed Away

Thanks to Patrick for sending this over to us earlier today. I lived in the Chicago area for a bit and became very familiar with Empire Carpet commercials and jingle and anyone else who heard them and especially grew up hearing them might be saddened to hear that the voice of Empire Carpet himself, Elmer Lynn Hauldren has passed away at the age of 89. Here is the full story at the Chicago Sun Times.
