Scotty Eldridge Obituary

Tamworth, NH

Scotty C. Eldridge, 84, Of Tamworth, NH passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 10, 2023 surrounded by his family after a lengthy battle with dementia.

He was born on May 24, 1939 in Tamworth, NH to Lester and Ida Eldridge. He attended grade school on Turkey Street and then immediately joined the work force thereafter. Scott was the definition of a family man and was never afraid of hard work. He spent his entire life in Tamworth, where he met and married his wife Sandra in June of 1962. They created a beautiful and simple life together with their only son, Scotty. He spent a good part of his younger years logging with his father and brother. Scotty then continued on to work for NH DOT in Chocorua, where he retired from after 30 years. He was also known for his passion of mowing fields and roadside with his lifelong best friend, Bob. They spent many years and drove many miles maintaining fields with their antique tractors, making many acquaintances throughout the community.

Scott was also an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved telling stories of his time spent with all of his brother in-laws in Northern NH where they spent countless hours in the woods and riding the back roads hunting deer and partridge as well as on the lakes and rivers catching endless fish and creating unforgettable memories together. He passed down his love of hunting to his son Scotty and Grandson.

Brandon who will continue the tradition for many years to come knowing that he will always be there with them. They will always cherish the time spent together “Up to Camp” or in Denmark, ME chasing the big ones. He may not have always filled the freezer, but spending time with some of his favorite people was all that mattered.

If you ever had a conversation with Scott, chances are he mentioned one of his grand kids or great grandchildren. His world revolved around them and to say he loved to spoil them, is an understatement.

He was known for allowing school night sleepovers, or sneaking them money for unneeded toys any chance he got. He also loved spending time snowmobiling together, building tall snowbanks and packing down trails for them to ride on while snapping countless pictures (sometimes of himself on accident) to browse back at for hours on end.

We are all going to miss his humor, and the way he would say exactly what he was thinking regardless of who was listening. We are going to miss seeing him rocking on the porch, yelling at people to slow down. We are going to miss the way he loved his wife and family with everything he had and his selflessness. We are going to miss his famous catch phrases that everyone knew (can we get a big “D*** it, Bob”) and his stories. He was certainly one of a kind, and we were all so lucky to have him in our lives.

Scott is survived by his loving wife, Sandra of 61 years. His Son, Scotty and wife Terri. Granddaughter, Erica and Husband Matt.  Grandson, Brandon and Partner Brittney, and his Great Grandchildren Adalynn, Rylee, Greyson and Bodie. He also leaves behind several brother/sister in-laws, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Lester and Ida Eldridge as well as his brother, Roland Eldridge and his sisters: Violet Sheppard, Eleanor Rhines and Eva Emerson.
