I am sad to hear about the passing of Eldred. During the 1990's till 2004 I worked with him when I was the HR manager for Kichler lighting. We spent a lot of time together during contract negotiations. Although he would tell me the same stories over and over again, he was a great gentleman and outstanding labor attorney. I am saddened by his death. My deepest condolences to you at his passing.
