Dr. Richard Eldred (1935-2014) Remembered
A memorial service was held for the late Dr. Richard Eldred, a beloved former history professor, who passed away at the age of 78 on March 22, 2014 following a heart attack. A celebration of his life took place on Wednesday, March 26 at Tabernacle Bible Church, 455 Grove St., Honesdale, PA, officiated by Pastor John Banks.
This legendary educator, mentor, and friend was employed at Nyack College from 1965 to 1999. A tribute to his career at Nyack was reflected in the 1999 Missionarian yearbook, which was dedicated to him with these words:
“Prof. Eldred: His wisdom of life and his faith are inspiring and tested. His gentleness is evidenced in an arm around your shoulder or a comforting thought of affirmation. This old-town boy’s involvement in and dedication to the Nyack College community has been felt by all, whether you knew it or not…Thank you, Professor Eldred, for your years of knowledgeable service, friendship, and inspiration.”
Condolences can be sent to Ronald and Mary Eldred, 657 West Park St., Honesdale, PA 18431.
Please keep the Eldred family in your prayers.
