  • Notes 
    • Dwight Edson Eller Passed away October 15, 2015. Born March 12, 1931, Milford, Nebraska of an
      original settler family of Nebraska. Raised in Clay Center, Nebraska and Bozeman, Montana, he
      graduated from Bozeman High School and worked as a ranch hand and rodeo cowboy until going on
      active duty with the United States Army in 1952, having been first in the Montana National Guard. After
      serving overseas in France he mustered out in 1954 and moved to Tucson to attend the University of
      Arizona, he then met the love of his life, Patricia and they married in 1955. He graduated in 1960 with a
      J.D. in law, preceded with a B.A. in Finance. After serving as a bailiff to Judge John Molloy he was
      appointed to the Tucson City Attorney's Office 1961 where he worked as an Assistant City Attorney and
      periodically as the City Attorney for 30 years, retiring in 1991. Predeceased by his wife of 46 years,
      Patricia Ingle Eller, and survived by their children, Jill Becker (David), Eric Eller (Joan), and Judith I.
      Eller; grandchildren, Veronica Becker West and Richard Patrick Eller; nephews Galo Hurtado (Robbi)
      and Jon Hurtado (Lynn) and their families; he later remarried and is survived by wife Carla North and
      her children, Matthew (Andrea), Katharine (Dewey), Elizabeth (Matt) and families. Dwight was very
      active in his Alpha Tau Omega fraternity chapter at the U of A and the Antique Automobile Club of
      America, owning many vintage cars over the years. Descending from the German Anabaptists who
      settled western North Carolina in the 1740's, he was also active in the Tucson German-American club
      with his first wife Patricia who had been raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia in the 1930s, and thus spoke
      fluent German. They had many friends who worked for Lufthansa airlines as a result, since Lufthansa
      used Tucson as a training base in the 1960s, and traveled frequently to Europe in retirement to tour and
      visit. He and Carla continued those activities. He was a man who, having been born of the humblest
      beginnings, brought himself up to the highest levels of achievement in education and career through dint
      of moral courage and determination, always determined to do what was right. Raised as a Methodist in
      the Midwest, he was confirmed into the Episcopal Church after marriage, and held this faith firmly and
      deeply to the end of his life.
