Eldon Davis

Eldon was born on June 2, 1932, in Marysville, to Eldon and Margaret (Butler) Davis.  He graduated from Marysville High School in 1950.  He served in the US Navy during Korea.  He married Beulah Farrell on July 10, 1954, at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Marysville, she passed away on April 19, 1985.

Eldon could be very funny in a stoic kind of way.  You needed to watch out when he had a glint in his eye and he frequently had a good joke ready to tell.

A private family graveside service will be held at Prospect Hill Cemetery, north of Blue Rapids with Father Greg Doll officiating.  Inurnment with Military Honors by George Bedford Post 169 of the American Legion and an Honors Detail from the US Navy will be at Prospect Hill Cemetery.
