Growing up in the NYC area and watching TV meant that you would eventually hear the voice of one Elmer Lynn as he talked about nothing but great deals on carpets and installation. It wasn’t that long ago that Lynn served as the public face of the company even though more recently Empire Carpet has used a 3D caricature of him as a replacement in their commercials.

In any case, it looks like Elmer Lynn will no longer be in any new Empire Carpet ad as news has broke that he passed away at the age of 89.
