ELDRINGHOFF 1/15/35-11/2/12 Rev. John Patrick Eldringhoff, 77, a retired Roman Catholic priest of the Diocese Kansas City-St. Joseph, passed away of heart failure on Nov. 2, 2012. Visitation will be Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. at St. Mark's Church, 3736 S. Lee's Summit Rd., Independence, MO, followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery. Fr. John served as an active duty Air Force Reserve from 1957-1963. He chose his path to serve the Lord and was ordained in 1968. He was best known for his inspiring sermons and for being a trusted friend and confidant. As one of his former parishioners at St. Munchin eloquently stated, "It was as if many of his homilies were the Holy Spirit using (Fr. John) to deliver the message to me." He was preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Marie Eldringhoff, sisters Mary Louise Aston and Geraldine Sanders (Gil), great-niece Jennifer Morgan, and his beloved dogs Cricket and Andy. He is survived by his brother Herbert, nieces Connie Russell, Judy Szymula (Dave), Jeanette McAllister (Jim), Michele Sanders; nephews David Eldringhoff, Jamie Eldringhoff (Margie), Chris Sanders; great-nieces Amy Hiesberger (Jon) and Wendy Macrorie (Scott). Our family would like to thank all of the clergy, especially Fr. Charles Tobin and Fr. Jim Taranto, nurses, and countless friends and parishioners who supported and prayed for Fr. John and our family during this difficult time. Memorial donations may be made to St. Mark's Catholic Church, Independence, MO, or The Kansas City Hospice House, 12000 Wornall.
