The BC Archives Genealogical Vital Events index lists a baptism for an Eldred John Yule in Okanagan Landing:

Name:
YULE, ELDRED JOHN
Gender:
Male
Event Place:
OKANAGAN LANDING
Father Name:
JOSEPH BROWNING
Mother Name:
MARY JANE
Event Type:
Baptism

They have it available at the archives in Victoria, but that's all I could get online. Depending on his religion, you may want to contact The Spallumcheen Methodist Mission fonds to see if they have anything on record.

I was also able to find him in several censuses in the USA using Family Search:

"United States Census, 1930," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XC85-46M : accessed 09 Oct 2012), Eldred J Yule, Pasadena, Los Angeles, California; citing enumeration district (ED) 1265, sheet 11B, family 31, NARA microfilm publication T626, roll 169.

"United States Census, 1920," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MH7Z-KH7 : accessed 09 Oct 2012), John E Yule in household of Anna Romer, Pasadena Township Pasadena City Precinct 32, Los Angeles, California; citing enumeration district (ED) , sheet 14A, family 64, NARA microfilm publication T625, FHL microfilm 1820117.

And his marriage to Bertha Romer: "California, County Marriages, 1850-1952," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XLHN-YM4 : accessed 09 Oct 2012), Eldred J Yule and Bertha Romer, 1918.

My name is John Eldred Yule. Eldred Yule was my grandfather whom I never met. My father was John Joseph Yule and his mother was Bertha Romer Yule whom I also never met. A copy Eldred's obituary states date ot death as December 31, 1939.

Bertha died young I believe from a kidney problem. My dad is buried in Sierra Madre Pioneer Cemetery, Sierra Madre California and Eldred and Bertha are buried at Mountain View Cemetery in  Pasadena California. I might be able to provide more info if you are interested.
