Eldon Bruce Penner, 79, passed away in the early morning of Tuesday, February 12th at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
Eldon’s last few months battling Parkinson’s disease were not easy. He found strength through his faith in God and comfort through songs and scriptures. While in hospital, Eldon enjoyed visits from family and friends, and his spirit was lifted by their prayers. Eldon was a loving husband, a patient and supportive father, a kind-hearted brother and a loyal friend. He was a soft spoken, hardworking and humble man who enjoyed helping others.
Eldon is survived by his wife, Olinda, two children, Michelle and Bruce (Judith) and three grandchildren, Holli, Isaac and Lucas. He is predeceased by his brothers Harry and Bob, and survived by his sisters Ella, Betty, and Elviera.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Abbotsford Hospital for their dedication to treating patients with kindness, dignity and respect.
A Memorial Service for Eldon Penner will be held on Monday, February 25th at 1:00 pm at South Abbotsford Church, 32424 Huntington Road, Abbotsford, BC.
