Harold “STEVE” Steven Eldredge, age 70, passed away at home on June 19th, 2020 in La Veta, Colorado. Steve was born in Exeter, New Hampshire on October 23, 1949 to Harold S. Eldredge Jr. and Marjorie H. (Castleton) Eldredge. Steve graduated in 1968 and enlisted in the US Army and served from November 1968 until he was honorably discharged in 1971 after serving in Vietnam. Shortly after his discharge from the army, he decided to head west and settled in Denver, Colorado where he met and married his best friend, teammate, and love of his life Kim Dietrich. They moved to Huerfano County in 1984 where he opened the auto body shop at Lenzini Motor Company and ran it successfully until 1997 when he fulfilled his dream and opened his own business Prism Body and Paint, with the help of Paul Valdez, whom he thought of as a son.
