Brillinger, Eldon Merle

Unexpectedly on Thursday, February 4, 2021. Survived by Eldon’s other half, Neva Vermeylen. Loving father of Mike, Laurie (Ken), Peter, and Donna (Phil). Grandpa will be lovingly remembered by Jesse, Hannah, Ashley, Tyler, Nick, Jennifer and great grandchildren Arthur, Walter, Kiera, Charlie, Olive, Nicole, Ryan, Aaron and Avery. Dear brother to Milly, and predeceased by Vera, Velma, Jean, Walter and Ross. Uncle to many nieces and nephews. Eldon had a great sense of humor, loved his family and was passionate playing blue grass and especially gospel on his guitar. Due to the Covid restrictions, there will be a private family service by invitation only. In memory of Eldon, donations to the Heise Hill Church would be appreciated.

I know Eldon through his daughter, Laurie. I know he loved his family very much and had a built a strong connection of love with Laurie and her own family. Those bonds are deep and meaningful and Eldon will never be forgotten.

Ann and I were saddened to hear of Eldon’s passing and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time. I enjoyed the years that I spent working with him at Brillinger Signal Products. He was a very kind and thoughtful man and I have many happy memories of time spent with him.

I am saddened to learn of Eldon's passing and pray for God's peace, strength, and comfort to be yours in the midst of your loss. Pictures such as those below hold treasured memories. Eldon's family were our neighbors growing up; Eldon's mom was my dad's sister. Our last meeting was at Tim Horton's in August, 2014 during a family visit home from Bahamas.
