Eldon C Jorgensen was born in Emery, Utah on November 15, 1925, to Nephi and Violet Petty Jorgensen. He married Shirley Davis in November of 1947. They moved to Salt Lake City in 1951.

Eldon retired from Intermountain Peterbilt in 1990 after working in the trucking industry for nearly 40 years.

Eldon was a World War II Veteran. He was drafted when he was 18. He served in the European Theatre and Occupations in Japan.

He loved his golf and really enjoyed golfing with his sons and grandsons. The Meadowbrook Seniors were a big part of his life.

Eldon is survived by his wife, Shirley. Sons, Randy (Shauna) and Rick (Willie). Grandsons, Jeff and Kerry and granddaughter, Dana. He was preceded in death by brothers LaVell, Jerry & Cal and sisters, LaVee, Zenna, and Kathleen.

We are honoring dad’s wishes to not have a funeral. He would want us to remember him with a golf club in his hands.

A graveside service will be held at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 south), Sandy, Utah.

  • Shirley, I am so saddened to learn of Eldon’s passing. I am also grateful that he was such an amazing mentor for me, as I began my field career with Peterbilt. Such a true friend. RIP Eldon.
