Knox Eldredge, age 65, of West Scranton, passed away Saturday morning at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton., after a sudden illness. Surviving is his wife and best friend, Florence (Royce) Eldredge. The couple celebrated their 23rd anniversary on June 20th.
Born on February 9, 1954, Knox was the son of the late William, Sr., and Jean (Moore) Eldredge. For years, he was the owner and operator of Packard Floor Care of Scranton, a specialist in commercial flooring care. Prior to his illness, he worked for the maintenance department of the TJ Maxx warehouse.
He loved music, whether it be playing his guitar or singing. A lifelong football fan, he especially liked college football. A Miami native, he rooted for both the Miami Hurricanes and the P.S.U. Nittany Lions. Above all, he was a kind and loving soul. Forever remembered as having a heart of gold, he would be the first to help someone in need. He’ll be dearly missed.
He is also survived by three step-children, Amy Tucker and husband Michael, John Young and Dawn Woodbridge and husband David, all of Scranton; his sister, Susan Stadolny of Scranton; five grandchildren, Christian, Amanda, Scotty, Michael, Jr., and Abigail; and adoring nieces and nephews.
A blessing service to be celebrated by Rev. Elliott Cooke, Jackson Street Baptist Church Pastor, is scheduled for Wednesday at 6:00PM in the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Family and friends are welcome to pay respects from 4:00PM until services. Interment will be private.
