Oliver Edward Eltzroth

June 11, 1958 — December 10, 2022

Munising

Oliver “Ollie” Edward Eltzroth, age 64, of 304 w. Superior Street, Munising, died at his home under the care of loved ones and North Woods Hospice on Saturday morning, December 10, 2022.  He was born on June 11, 1958 in Wabash, Indiana to the late Kenneth and Isabelle (Miller) Eltzroth.  Ollie grew up in Wabash and graduated from Wabash High School in 1976.  He moved to the Upper Peninsula and Uno Lodge on the 440 after graduation.   Ollie embraced his life in the U.P. and all of what the outdoors had to offer.  He logged in the woods with Chris Graves and on Beaver Island for Bob Graves.  Ollie spent time working construction with Don Edmonds and then worked at Iverson Snowshoe for many years.  He then worked for Hiawatha Homes and then at Timber Products.  Ollie loved the outdoors.  He enjoyed hunting, camping, fishing – especially early mornings on the Hurricane River, backpacking on Isle Royale, and taking rides in the woods.  He was always in search of morels and was called the “Mushroom King” by those who knew his eagle’s eye and morel skills.  He had so many secret spots for morels and fishing.  Ollie would occasionally share one or two spots, but most of his secret places have gone with him.  He did enjoy his hunting trips to Colorado and the summers spent tubing down the Indian River with family and friends.  Ollie had a little bit of his grandfather’s farming skills and spent summers raising pigs and farming.  He really enjoyed those times.

Ollie is survived by his daughter – Angela Schierschmidt of Munising; longtime girlfriend and best friend – Terri LeVeque of Munising; sister – Debra Ann Eltzroth of Phoenix, AZ; brother-in-law – Dave Richards of Somerset, IN; and sister-in-law – Diane Eltzroth of Indianapolis, IN.  He was preceded in death by his parents Kenneth and Isabelle, sister Bevery Richards, and stepbrother Kenneth “Joe” Eltzroth.

Services will be held at the Presbyterian Church in Munising on Tuesday, December 13, 2022.  Visiting time with family and friends will be from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.  Pastor Jim Rodgers will conduct Ollie’s memorial service at 11:00 a.m. and a fellowship luncheon will follow the service.
