Obituary: Rick Elderkin

The memorial service for Richard H. Elderkin scheduled for Thursday, March 19 at Claremont United Church of Christ, has been postponed.

“Our family has come to join me now and we had hoped to have a warm and loving memorial service for Rick,” his wife Linda Elderkin shared. “But the world has grown complex this week and so difficult for all of us. Sadly, it looks as if we will have to postpone our memorial service until a simpler, brighter day. So many of you in so many spaces and places have sent warm loving messages of support to us. Each and everyone is so valued and treasured.”
