Eldon was born April 22, 1955 in Caribou, Maine. Before graduating from high school he began working evenings and weekends for local farmers and then full time for his uncle at his car dealership. After a year, his father, Gerald, put him in a truck with no instruction and he "had to learn fast." After driving for about 10 years, he began managing the garage of seven trucks and log loaders, a role he filled for another 12 years before becoming company president and co-owner with brother, Rudy.

Both now oversee the full range of logging operations, including trucking, road construction, road maintenance, shop maintenance, mill yard log hauling and manage upwards of 70 employees plus many subcontractors. For around 30 years, Eldon and his late father, Gerald, competed in four wheel drive modified truck pulling as members of the Maine State Pullers, the Northern Penobscot Pullers and the National Truck Pullers Association. Eldon is married to Judy Godin and they have three children: Cassie, who has a Bachelor's of Science degree in Rehabilitation Services, and Erika, who has an Associates degree in Medical Assisting and and an Associates degree in Dental Hygiene. Erika was recently married to Jason Linkletter, a police officer with the city of Bangor. They have a daughter named Kassidy, and they are expecting another daughter in July. Eldon and Judy also have a boy, Aaron, who is working with his uncle Larry in Telos. They now have two grandchildren, a girl named Kassidy and a boy named Carter. Eldon loves to travel and camp in his motor home with his family and also enjoys hunting and fishing. According to Eldon, "Life is great!"
