In his career as a general contractor, Eldon designed and built custom homes. His work connected him to many people, and he made numerous friends bringing joy into people’s lives with his positive attitude, sweet humor, and hospitality. He was always helping others.
He loved the mountains, outdoors, and physical fitness, and lived life to the fullest. His travels took him throughout the U.S. and Canada, to Europe, Central and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. As an avid reader, he studied books on religion and health.
