Kevin D. Eichelberger
Altoona - Dr. Kevin Dwayne Eichelberger passed away on April 17, 2021, surrounded by the love of his family. This came after a short, but tireless fight due to complications of his recent diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He was born on December 7, 1964, in Ashland, Ohio, to Warren and Louise Eichelberger.

His passion for helping others led him to pursue chiropractic at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO where he graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1991. From there, Dr. Eichelberger built a strong practice in Jesup, IA. In the fall of 2006, the family moved to Des Moines, joining Eastside Chiropractic. Dr. Eichelberger started Wellness Chiropractic Center in June 2007 in Altoona, IA where he continued until his untimely death.

He is survived by his wife, Christy (Schrock) Eichelberger, his three children, Corey, Katie and Caleb; his parents, Warren and Louis (Welch) Eichelberger, sister, Julie Eichelberger, niece, Amber (Randy) Rueber and family, father-in-law, Glen Schrock, brother/sister-in-law, Casey (Jessie) Schrock, and nieces and nephews, Izzy (Josh) Wootonn, Chandler, Ben and Shelby Schrock. Dr. Eichelberger was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Esther (Schultz) Schrock.

A private family graveside service will be held at Altoona Cemetery. A Celebration of Life Service will be arranged at a later date.
