Mr. Eaton was a gentleman and a fine person. He spent helping many hours in BSA. He took my son Robert to Indy to attend an OA seminar and served as an QA money handler. He was quiet but very pleasant and had a quiet sense of humor. He got along great with OA Advisor Charlie Bryant.
He touched the lives of many young boys/men.

God Bless him.
