Dr. Eliason graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1935. They worked in several communities, including Rush City, before beginning their practice in Renville.
For most of the years he had a mixed practice, and later specialized in small animals. His wife was his faithful assistant until their move and retirement. He was a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and licensed in Minnesota for 74 years. He served terms on the local school board, and was instrumental in the beginning and continuance of the Alliance Church in Renville for many years. In 2010 he was honored by Gideons International for 68 years of service. His special concern in his later years was ministering to the shut-ins and those dying. He had received much appreciation by those affected families.
Grateful for his long and full life, he will be missed by his son and daughter-in law Bob and Shirley Eliason of Roseville; his daughter and son-in law Pat and Carl Erickson of Lindstrom; three grandsons and wives Dan and April Erickson; Jon and Kris Erickson, Joe and Heidi Erickson and one granddaughter and husband Kate and Doug DePrez. He also will be missed by his 11 great grandchildren: all of whom anticipate being reunited with him in Heaven with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
