Eldon, I do not know if I ever thanked you for being such a positive roll model for me when I was young. I always looked forward to seeing you. Jordan and Billy still talk about spending the day in the field with you and Gordon when you were harvesting corn. We will miss you! Your smile and laugh will forever be in our hearts.

As children, we spent a lot of time at the Minneota farm visiting our Uncle Eldon and our grandparents. Eldon worked hard, but was always there with a joke or a story. He loved the farm and he loved his family and we will miss him.
