Riehl, Eldon Lee

It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Eldon Lee Riehl on Sunday, July 25, 2021, at Health Sciences North at 71 years of age.  Beloved husband and soulmate of Nicole Riehl (nee Metthe).  Dear Father to Tiffany Desjardins (Eric) and Trevor Riehl (Sarah).  Loving grandfather to Peyton, Mallory, Olivia, Grace, and Charlotte. Survived by his brother Gary Riehl.  Lee was a kind soul, who didn’t mind helping no matter what it was.  He loved farming and beef cattle. He was an industrial electrician for 30 years at Inco and then worked another 7 years as an electrical contractor. Lee loved his kids dearly and enjoyed going to hockey games watching our son play for the winter months and enjoyed watching our daughter compete in equestrian horse shows in the summer months.  He never deprived us of what we wanted to do. He was a good provider, husband, soulmate. His timing was always perfect for a funny joke. I’m going to miss him for the rest of my life. Love you Lee and I shall see you when my turn comes up. Rest in peace. In lieu of flowers, donations in Eldon's memory can be made directly to the Alzheimer’s Society https://alzheimer.ca/en or the Behavioural Support of Ontario https://www.nbrhcfoundation.ca/make-a-donation - (or by calling 705-495-8125) and indicate who the donation is in memory of. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, July 31, 2021, from 2:00p.m.- 6: 00p.m; at 608 Bonin St., Azilda, ON.
