Eldon was born January 24, 1913, the fourth child of Clarence and Estell Mikesell Pack in Deseret, Utah. The family of seven moved to the community of Manila, north of Pleasant Grove, Utah, in 1917. They traveled for five days in one loaded wagon towing another loaded wagon, towing 2 buggies and leading 2 cows, all pulled by three horses; Dolly, Queen and Pet.

Eldon attended schools in Pleasant Grove and married Eulala Hannah Smith June 20, 1934 in Lehi, Utah. They were the parents of four sons and four daughters. He worked at various jobs including Mercur Mining, United Smelting and Refining, Utah Farmers Association and Grounds Keeper at the Brigham Young University where he retired.

He was a generous person, often taking sacks of food to BYU students who worked for him. From his garden he gave away countless bushels of corn, tomatoes and cucumbers. If he had machinery problems on the farm, his whistle could be heard a county block away and family dropped what they were doing and went to see what he needed. He would sing ‘Rise and Shout, the Cougars are out" and "Oh, what a beautiful morning" to wake up his children in the morning. He loved to play the marble game or cards with family and trailer club friends and was very competitive. He loved sports, riding horses, fishing, hunting deer and elk, and traveling. He fished salmon in Kenai, Alaska, trout in most western states, and yellow tail tuna in Mexico. He loved history and shared this knowledge when and wherever the family was vacationing in their camper. He built a cabin at Strawberry Reservoir from old BYU Quonset huts that were being demolished.

He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in several capacities. He was survived by his wife and eight children.
