Ron Lee Eldridge

March 13, 1943 — January 6, 2022

Ron Eldridge, 78, died on January 6, 2022, in Bozeman, MT while being cared for in the Bozeman Deaconess Hospital. He passed gently in his sleep.

Ron was born March 13, 1943, in Bozeman, the son of Lloyd E. Eldridge and Leona J. (Thompson) Eldridge. He attended Bozeman High School and held a variety of jobs in his younger years, notably as a rest home aide, doing flower arrangements at Milam's greenhouse and then working as a custodian in the Bozeman School District. I'm sure many Bozeman High students and teachers will remember him fondly. He finished his career with the school district working in the Willson building on Main Street. Ron enjoyed crafting and after he retired he made many greeting cards that were distributed by the Methodist Church. He also enjoyed music and played the organ or piano at several weddings and funerals. Although not a veteran, Ron was active as an associate member of the Vietnam Veterans of America.

Ron never married. He is survived by his sister Jackie Banta, his brother-in-law Chuck Banta, one niece (Stephanie McLaren and husband Scott), one nephew (Ron Banta and wife Melissa), and three great nephews (Kirk McLaren, Garrett McLaren and Cyrus Banta). All are living in Bozeman/Belgrade. He will be greatly missed.

In deference to the Bozeman weather a Graveside Memorial Service will be planned in the Spring.
