Celebrating the Life Eldon Penner

1942-2010 married to Irene (Unger) for many happy years
Respected businessman, enthusiastic Christian, friend, cousin - we'll all miss him. Eldon was always at extended family gatherings and greeted me and every one else with enthusiasm and a keen interest in what was going on in my life. He was a very sociable man.

Ralph - maybe his hearing is perfect again. Life has meaning: it's worth the trip to heaven.
We are very sad. We come with heavy hearts and ask for the oil of healing.
Garnet, Irene's Cousin, led in 2 Songs: It will be worth it all when we see Jesus. Eldon sang along with this when he was able.
Eldon also liked to sing: Be still and know that I am God. I am the Lord that healeth thee. In thee oh Lord I put my trust.

Video tribute from grand kids. Loving, caring, often paying for other people's meals. Always wanted his customers to he happy.
He loved pepper. Liked weird food. Often wore his beaver hat. He has the best now - probably selling tires to Jesus.

Ed Johnson: How big are -the tires God's car?
I know the plans I have for you said Jeremiah the weeping prophet.
Eldon leaped into heaven a few days ago. We grieve with you, we love you.
16 years ago Eldon rented us a home. He was a most considerate landlord.
When a tire store manager was dying, Eldon was the one who led him to the Lord. He would be disappointed if any one here will not meet him in heaven.
He helped to make sure that church finances were ok.
Christ is calling each of us to rest in Him. God so loved us he sent his son to save us.
Fears: we do not lose heart - we look to the eternal to face this day. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. Jesus forgets our sin. Complete forgiveness. Jesus calls as to come to him to give us rest.
