Mr. Eldridge Brock

Dear Shepherd’s Center Family and Friends,

I hope you are doing well. We wanted to let you know about the passing on Saturday of our very dear friend and colleague, Mr. Eldridge Brock.

It is with a heavy heart that we share this news. Eldridge was not just a valued member of our organization; he was one of the visionaries who played a pivotal role in founding the Shepherd’s Center in 1999. His passion, persistent dedication, and unwavering commitment have left an indelible mark on our community and organization.

Eldridge’s contributions were not limited to his role as a founding member. Throughout the years, he served on numerous committees, consistently providing steadfast support and leadership to our organization for over 25 years. These committees included:

  • Board of Trustees (Past and Current) Member
  • Charity Auction Volunteer
  • Applebee’s Breakfast Fundraiser Volunteer
  • Senior Idol Volunteer
  • Tea Party Volunteer
  • Bulk Mailing Committee Member
  • Executive Committee Member
  • Finance Member
  • Fundraising Task Force Member
  • Board of Trustees Member filling Mrs. Beckie Brock’s his wife board position upon her passing.
  • CCRC Member
  • Volunteer Driver
  • Finance Co-Chair
  • Treasurer Chair

 

Eldridge’s absence will undoubtedly leave a significant gap in our organization that will be challenging to fill. As we come together to honor Eldridge’s life and legacy during the visitation and funeral, let us also reflect on his tremendous impact on us and the Shepherd’s Center. His unwavering dedication for over 25 years has shaped our organization’s success and growth.
