This is a post from FaceBook from his son in law Rod...
Sandy Mitchell lost her father I a father In-Law Ashley Mitchell and Brittany Mitchell a Grandpa yesterday. Eldon Ekstrom 83 went to church, ate lunch, watched the Viks win and went to rest under a shade tree at Voss Park in Butterfield. As "BIG" a heart as he had it just couldn't keep up with him anymore Like all of us so many more will miss such a great man!
Your laugh and your smile will be forever in my heart, uncle Eldon. Thank you for sharing them so plentifully over the years.
