    In 1980 he did not finish. An obviously tenacious man, he returned two years later to finish, though after the deadline. An electrical engineer, Mr Eldridge learned to sail as a child.

    According to the SF Chronicle, Mr Eldridge also climbed Mts Kilimanjaro and Fuji. With two partners he started Memorex, "one of the [Bay] area's first computer-generated start-ups". He also founded International Video Corporation. He had lots of kids and twelve grandchildren.
