Eldon H. Hambel
October 20, 1927 ‒ September 01, 2018
Eldon H. Hambel, 90, residing in Westerville passed away Saturday, September 1, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.
He was born October 20, 1927 in Columbus, Ohio the only son of the late Eldon & Esther (Mason) Hambel Sr.
He met and would later marry the love of his life Louise Gease. They both attended Christ Presbyterian Church in Columbus, and were active at Gillie Senior Recreation Center in Columbus, where they enjoyed Square dancing, line dancing, and listening to country music. He was a huge fan of the late Movie star “John Wayne” and loved to watch his movies.
Eldon worked as a construction manager for Perma-Stone in Columbus before he retired after 45 years with the company.
Eldon and Louise enjoyed riding their motorcycle with friends across the country, always known for their coordinating attire while they were riding. They enjoyed traveling to such places as Branson, Missouri; and through Amish country, and vacationing most winters down in Fort Myers, Florida.
Left to cherish his memory are son Dennis (Jennie) Hambel; daughter Tamara Louise Ortiz; grandchildren Chad (Sommer) Tucker, and Nicole Hambel; great grandchildren Griffin, Riley, and Ollie; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife of 70 years Louise Hambel, and sister Ellen Funk.
Eldon can only be described as amazing, and humorous, who took great pride in his family. Those who knew Eldon the best surely have a couple “Think About It” cards that they received from him, which were sayings, or quotes that made you think things through. He was also known for his “kisses” that he gave to everyone as well (the Hershey Chocolate kind).
A celebration of Eldon’s life, and gathering of friends will take place 1:00- 3:00 p.m. Saturday, September 8, 2018 at BRIO Tuscan Grille, Polaris Fashion Place, 1500 Polaris Parkway, Columbus, Ohio 43240, in the event room.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be directed towards a charity of the donor’s choosing.
