Elroy Dragsten, wrapped in the loving arms of his wife (Ardis) of more than 66 years, was called by Jesus on April 13, 2018, at the age of 92, in his home in Brookings, S.D. His fight with chronic lymphocytic leukemia was met with complications he could not overcome. We believe he was carried over the threshold into heaven by Jesus and his son Rodney. Elroy was united with loved ones and friends he has not seen in a long time.
