Eldon Lincoln Thompn On Abe Lincoln’s Birthday in 1928, a baby boy was born to Floyd and Floretta Thompson. So to begin the family tra- dition of naming their children after current events, he was named Eldon Lin- coln Thompson. El- don was to be one of 18 children to this couple. As we know, the 30’s were hard times, and a very difficult time for parents to raise a family. As the 01d- est, many responsibilities fell on El- don to keep up the farm, care for the animals, and help watch over of his siblings. This hard work attitude and caring for others was seeded deep at that time, and remained with him for his lifetime. When old enough to join, Eldon began his 20 year career in the mil- itary. He experienced World War 11, Korean, and Viet Nam wars. Be- cause of this dedication to his coun- try, it took him away from his spouse and family. Even though the marriages didn’t work out, they re- mained fiiends, and Eldon gave 6 children his Thompson name. Once retired from Military life, he settled down on the farm in Park River, ND. Here he became an en— trepreneur of salvage. . .and Thomp- son Salvage was bom. His biggest challenge and enjoyment was get- ting that best deal at an auction. By going to an auction with him, you quickly learned the secrets of bid- ding. . .eye ball the crowd real good as to who you are up against, nev- er talk with your hands or you’ll end up taking something home you don’t want, and of course, bidding up something you really don’t want, but don’t want it to go too cheap. Because of his children, the grandchildren started to come. With every new addition to his family, the sparkle in his eyes would get brighter with each birth. Some of the grand— son’s were blessed with summertime work with their grandpa. They learned powerful lessons of hard work, and how to “get the lead out”. He shared with them that he didn’t worry about dying. He told them that God has a plan, and when he turned the page in his book and if your name was on it, it was your day. Ifit wasn’t, you lived to see an— other day. His page finally came as he must have done everything God needed him to do. He also stressed that if you know what something is worth, don’t settle for less. And, a half ton pickup will haul a ton. In 1990, Eldon left the Park Riv- er farm and moved to Thief River Falls, MN, to be with his new bride, Margaret, and live out the rest of his life. Together they enjoyed their farm life and yard work, trav- eled when they could, and of course, Eldon continued to sneak in an auction or two. Eldon spoke highly of his new community of fiiends, his church, and his new ad— dition of more children and grand— children. On 11-15-19, Eldon left many loved ones behind, but was wel- comed with open arms by those that preceded him. We will hold our memories close to our hearts, and will retell our stories over and over when our families gather, and as new generations are added. A Celebration of Life will be held in May on the family farm in Park River, ND. This will allow for our wide spread family, and fiiends, to arrange plans to be there. Death Notice Larry D.
