    I didn't know Eldon personally but attended alot of Olson/Pearson auctions. He was always smiling and making jokes and was such fun as a ring man. The picture of him here is how I remember him, that great smile. I enjoyed him so much. I am so sorry to read of his passing and my deepest sympathy to his wife and family.
