    Benica, Richard and Family – We are heartbroken to hear of Eldon’s sudden passing. He meant so much to so many people, including our family. Many years ago, Eldon made special efforts to reach my brother Daryl while working at Goodwill. Eldon spent time nurturing my brother’s special needs and helped him develop some much needed confidence. My brother became a happier and improved individual thanks to Eldon’s efforts and kindness. We were so grateful for Eldon’s continued support after the passing of our father, and for his friendship even after his retirement. I know Eldon’s generous nature and loving spirit will be missed by all who knew him. Our extended sympathies to Eldon’s family and friends at this difficult time.
