GRAND PRAIRIE--A family man loved by friends and neighbors, Eldon Eugene Hooper, passed away at home on Saturday night, November 25, 2017.

VISITATION: 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, at Bean-Massey-Burge Funeral Home in Grand Prairie.

The youngest of 14 children, Eldon was born in Waurika, OK. to Arch and Maggie. His 94 year old brother, Odell, a decorated WW II POW, lives in Duncan, OK.

Loyal and dependable, Eldon worked at Vought Aerospace (LTV), now known as Triumph, for 39 years. Bill used to call Eldon her "Rock of Gibraltar." Anyone who knew him would agree. His legacy of kindness and generosity, passing on hard-earned knowledge to others, AND knowing how to have a good time, will live on forever through his girls, sons-in-law, grandson, friends and neighbors.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 39 years, Billie Jean McKamie-Hooper and Melinda's twin, Melissa Jean Hooper.

SURVIVORS: He is survived by his daughters, Teresa Jean Hooper-Grassley and Melinda Madden, sons-in-law, Bret Grassley and John "Bart" Madden and 6 year old grandson Zachary Levi Madden.
