October 14, 1948 - February 4, 2021
William “Bill” Glenn Eldreth, age 72, of Bristol, Virginia, passed away on Thursday, February 4, 2021, at Bristol Regional Medical Center in Bristol, Tennessee. He was born on October 14, 1948, in Washington County, Virginia, and was the son of the late Howard and Marvie Dye Eldreth. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by three brothers, Wayne Eldreth, Ron Eldreth, and Don Eldreth. Bill lived a life of true altruism. He never missed an opportunity to help others in need, no matter the time or place. “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others” (Booker T. Washington). Bill was the happiest of them all. He was passionate about flowers and witnessing to young people. He never missed an opportunity to talk to someone about the Bible, bring a new friend to church, or pray for anyone at any time. In his free time, Bill could be found either helping someone tend their garden or adding beauty to the world by planting flowers all over town and at the homes of friends and family. Bill is survived by his sons, James Eldreth (Audry Thompson) of State College, PA, and Jared Eldreth of Essex, MO; their mother, Robbie McLard of Essex, MO; step-children, Tim Hamby (Gina Hamby) of Bernie, MO, Jessie Palmer of Essex, MO, Joe Palmer (Tammy Palmer) of Forrest City, AR, and Moriah Sullivan (Jackson Sullivan) of Dexter, MO; two brothers, Richard Eldreth (Christine Eldreth), and Bob Eldreth (Janice Eldreth); one sister, Diane Keene (Jimmy Keene); and many loving extended family members and friends.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to Restoration Church at 2305 Volunteer Pkwy, Bristol, TN 37620, in support of their youth ministries.
