It is with tremendous sorrow that we say goodbye to our beloved, Barney Eldridge.
Barney passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, August 1, 2019, at the age of 60. Barney was born in San Antonio and grew up in Corpus Christi. He loved fishing, golfing, hunting, US History and music trivia. Barney attended King High School in Corpus Christi and earned a B.S. in Business Administration at his beloved Texas A&M and was well known for his love of Aggie football. He was President and Owner of Renfrow and Co. in Corpus Christi and was the past president of The Printing Industries of the Gulf Coast, as well as an active member of the Rotary Club in Corpus Christi. Barney was preceded in death by his parents Howard & Beverly Eldridge and his biological father George Thomas. Left to treasure his memory are his wife, Kelly Eldridge; sons, Jason Eldridge, Brent Eldridge, and Brandon Britain (Sivan); sisters, Vickie Purdy (Steve), Sheri Hunter (Scott); and three nieces and a nephew. He also leaves behind a vast community of beloved friends & colleagues that truly made his life complete. Lastly, his dearly loved and adorable rescue dog.
Barney was an amazing individual and was well respected within our industry. His infectious smile and sunny disposition are already missed.
We love you, miss you, and thank you for your contributions to our organization and our industry. And we thank you for your valued friendship.
Rest in Peace.
