Carol, Marsha, Donna & Tara,
I just received word of your father's passing. Please know you are in my prayers, and accept my condolence in the loss of your father and highly esteemed citizen. I did not know your dad well but still recall him practicing golf drives at the Elkville Grade school ball field.

I had the pleasure of being Mr. Eatons Dental Hygienist for many yrs. until I retired the end of 2011. I always loved it when he came for his appointment. We did our professional cleaning but it was much more than that. He was always so happy and had many wonderful stories to tell me. One thing I am sure you all know is how much he loved his friends and family. His birthday parties were so special to him. I know you will miss him. Thank you for letting me be part of his life. My thoughts...

I remember Flash from my years at COGC. He was such a colorful character. I will always think of him every time a see an unsmoken cigar. So. IL. has lost another great man.
May God continue to bless him family.
