Aug. 20, 1948 – Feb. 18, 2015
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of Eldon Pratt. Eldon grew up in Vancouver, BC and moved to Penticton to start a long career with the Canada Revenue Agency. He became a Certified General Accountant, joined the Penticton Golf and Country Club and made Penticton his home. Eldon loved reading, afternoon skiing at Apex, golfing and vacationing in the sun. After his retirement in 2007 he looked forward to golfing with his Tuesday golf buddies, his Thursday Men’s night groups and always made sure he was available for the Andy Moog/Penticton and Friends Celebrity Golf Classic. He recently took up pickleball and quickly became a skilled player enjoying both the challenges and comradery of the game. Eldon travelled more, became a handyman around the house, and a terror on his riding lawnmower. Eldon was a gentle man, a loving husband, and the best Dad ever. He will forever live on in our memory, warming our hearts and putting smiles on our faces. Eldon is survived by his wife Helga; his daughters Vanessa, Jacqueline, and Dani; his feline companion Velvet; and his brother Brian.
A Service will be held at a later date.
