In Memory Of Elmer Lynn Hauldren,
"The Empire Man"
Empire Today® is saddened by the loss of Elmer Lynn Hauldren, better known as the inspiration for the Empire Man character. He was known to millions of consumers as the Empire Man through Empire's broadcast advertising since the 1970s. Throughout the evolution of our advertising, Lynn still provided the voice for the famous character known as Empire's mascot. He continued to work with the company until ultimately his passing.
Lynn was also part of the barbershop quartet that sang the signature 800-588-2300® Empire jingle and was an important part of the Empire family.
His contribution to the brand was monumental, and he will truly be missed.
