Eldon Ward was a business leader in Columbus, Ohio for 50 years. Along the way, he worked hard for his family business and his community. An avid weightlifter and competition body builder in his early years, Eldon was dedicated to physical fitness. To maintain his healthy lifestyle after body building he developed a passion for swimming.
Anyone who knew Eldon, knew you could find him at 6:00 in the morning swimming laps in the pool at the YMCA on Woodland Avenue. This became his daily routine before heading to the offices of E.E. Ward Transfer & Storage at 8:00am.
The Ward tradition has always been to give back to the Columbus community. Eldon Ward was especially known for his Board Member efforts with the United Way, Columbus Foundation, Franklin County Welfare Advisory Board, and Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce.
In honor of such dedication to the well-being of others, E.E. Ward Moving & Storage is proud to create a new initiative in support of the Eldon and Elsie Ward Family YMCA. Our goal, is to raise money to fund “Safety Around Water” classes for children in the communities supported by the Ward YMCA, Hilltop YMCA, and North YMCA.
