My deepest condolences to Eldon’s beautiful family. Heaven gained an angel that is not short on the jokes. His joy will be missed dearly.
Eldon was a very nice man. I had lunch with him every day when he was in Duluth with me. I will tell you that there was much more intelligence in that man then most people give him credit for. I admired him and told him when I got out that I’d come to Las Vegas and he was going to buy me a drink with an umbrella in it. we laughed a lot all he ever talked about was his family. how he missed them and was so overwhelmed with love for his family God bless him
Eldon & family lived in our neighborhood when our kids were young. My daughter did some babysitting for the younger children and we had some good times with Halloween costumes and around the BBQ in the summer. Kathy, Sarah, Blake, Grant, Kristina — So sorry for your loss.
