Known by most as Fuzzy, Eldert was the kind of man everyone loved being with. His positive attitude and kind heart were an inspiration to everyone in his life. You could always count on him to remember your birthday with a phone call and a song. His gentle spirit, genuine interest in others, and easygoing nature made it easy for him to make friends with anyone, young or old. An avid outdoorsman, he was most in his element hunting or fishing, and enjoyed more than anything spending time at his cabin with family and friends. Eldert was one of the most generous, caring and special people ever put on this earth, and his presence will be deeply missed by those fortunate enough to have known him.
