Mr. Eldon Lee Grover, 72, of Galesburg, passed away at 3:45 PM on Sunday January 2, 2022, in his home.
Eldon was born on December 23, 1949, to Warren Eldon and Geneieve Neva (Arnold) Grover. He married Janet Morlan on September 22, 1973, in Galesburg.
Left to cherish Eldon’s memory is his wife of 48 years, Janet of Galesburg; his four sons, Christopher Grover, Arthur Grover, Scott Grover and Travis Grover all of Galesburg; his daughter, Sarah (Nicholas) Payne of Abingdon, Illinois; three brothers, Joe (Vera) Grover of Arnold, Missouri, Franklin Grover of St. Louis, Missouri, and Dale (Renee) Franklin of Grandville, Iowa; three sisters, Trudy (Jim) Turner, Joyce O’Neil both of Knoxville, Illinois and Mary Grover of Galesburg and four grandchildren, Ryan, Tyler, Isabelle and Maya. He is preceded in death by his parents.
Eldon lived in Galesburg his entire life and attended Galesburg schools. Eldon was certainly not a lazy man but rather a jack of all trades. He worked multiple jobs, including changing oil at Farm King, laying floors for Bullock Garage, delivering news papers for the Register Mail and cleaning banks in the Galesburg and Knoxville area. Eldon enjoyed working in his garden and truly loved spending time with his grandchildren.
