I met Eldon when working at the International Integration Center in Walmart. I remember him as a really easy-going person, always smiling. What comes to my mind when I think about him is the passion with which he talked about his garden; he would start talking about the last kind of flower he planted and how it was blooming or how it was changing and progressing from the previous year, and I could tell he was really proud. May he rest in peace.

I was in high school with Eldon. Eldon and I were together sometimes while our mothers worked for the betterment of Harrison Training Center. It sounds like Eldon has had a servant's life to other people. His Facebook posts show that he loved his family and was proud of them. We send our condolences to his family for their loss of Eldon. May his love be of comfort to you.

I am so sorry to hear about Eldon. He and I actually started with Walmart on the same day back in 94. I remember we would meet for lunch for many times that 1st year and has some great conversations. Will miss him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My best memories of my Uncle Eldon were when I was a kid. He would play baseball with us and throw the football around and taught us some basketball moves. Probably the most memorable thing I remember is his laugh that made me laugh. Love you Uncle Eldon
