Obituary for Eldon T. Greenwood

Eldon Thomas Greenwood, age 88, of Shakopee, MN, entered eternal life on Thursday, October 4, 2018, at St. Gertrude's Health Care Center in Shakopee.
Eldon was born on September 22, 1930, in Marshall, MN, the son of Frederick and Margaret (Litterick) Greenwood. He married Lila Luchtel on October 16, 1951, in Marshall.
Eldon was a loved son, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend.
He was a skilled master electrician and worked on the buildings at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester in his early years, then started his own electrical contracting business in Shakopee.
He liked an adventure, enjoyed flying his small plane, traveling, being outdoors and on the water. Most of all he loved sharing that time with family and friends.
As his Alzheimer’s disease progressed, and his day to day challenges increased, he kept his humor, and he still wanted to go somewhere with Lila.
Eldon is survived by his wife, Lila; children, Julie Greenwood (Larry Werner) and John (Karina); grandchildren, Erin (Jamie) Theis, Lauren (Chase) Kirkpatrick; great-grandchildren, Taylor and Tanner Theis, Karly, Kate and Kacie Kirkpatrick; daughter-in-law, Dianne Greenwood; many nieces, nephews and friends.
Eldon is preceded in death by his sons, Jim and Joe; parents, Frederick and Margaret; sister, Lucille Larson; brother, Harold.
