Elden played basketball and baseball in high school and continued to play on softball leagues well into his 40's. He was an avid gardener, Twins fan, hunter and fisherman and had many hunting dogs who loved him dearly. Elden enjoyed relaxing at the family cabin on Big Cormorant Lake in Minnesota where his five great-nieces and nephews followed their "Uncle Elden" around the lake like little ducklings. He helped his sister raise her three children. Elden taught his nephew, Brad, the skills of hunting and fishing and then taught his great-nephews, Luke and Isaac the same skills.
He is survived by his sister: Carolyn Amundson; nieces: Tricia Johnson and Tracy Amundson; nephew: Brad (Sarah) Amundson; great-nephews and great-nieces: Luke and Haylee Johnson, Isaac, Ella and Lily Amundson all of West Fargo and his dog: Willow.
