Survived by his wife Marjorie, 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. “In 1962 Eldon became the first and, for many years, the only ob/gyn north of Kamloops. After delivering thousands of babies, it was only fitting that he passed away in the wee hours of Labour Day. In recognition of his tremendous contributions to the medical community, he was installed as a life member of the Canadian Medical Association in 1995 and inducted into the Northern Medical Hall of Fame in 2009. He also enjoyed a variety of sports, and was the star goalie of the Prince George Doctors hockey team back in the ’60s and ’70s.”
