I had the privilege of getting to know Elliot on a professional as well as a personal level during our time working together. Elliot had such a positive energy to him and he was always an absolute pleasure to be around. I enjoyed our time talking about sports, especially Elliot’s NY Yankees. Even though Elliot was a client of mine, he always took time to ask me about how my family was doing. I enjoyed our coffee morning get togethers. Elliot you were a great man, and you will be missed. I hope you are resting in peace.

I send my sincere condolences to Elliot’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Elliot in the Bronx Inspection unit. He taught me a lot about Leased Housing. Our only pet peeve was he was a Jet fan and I was a Giants fan which led to some interesting conversations. May his spirit live within all of us. God bless

Uncle Elliot was more than an uncle to me — he was a friend for literally as far back as I can remember. Some of my favorite memories of childhood are being with Uncle Elliot in New York — watching sports videos for hours in Sheepshead Bay, going to games, picking lottery numbers with him and walking up the block to get bagels in the morning. And as I got older and everything else in the world kept changing, he was still the same old Uncle Elliot to me until the very end. To this day, he is still the only person I could talk to on the phone for hours — about sports, about life, and even politics. I always enjoyed spending time with him, and I wish the kids got to know him better.

I will really miss him, and he was best uncle I could have possibly had. I hope there’s a sports book up in heaven for him.

My Uncle Elliot was a cherished part of my life, for all of my life. No special occasion or milestone passed without his presence—whether in person or on the phone. He would move mountains to help my brother and me, to see us even if we only had a few minutes to give, and always expressed his love. It gives me comfort to read these kind and beautiful words from friends and colleagues, who I know served as extended family for him. I am still very much in shock over his sudden passing, and was looking forward to seeing him once it was safe and he could come to Maryland for a visit. I am glad others got to experience his huge heart. I will miss him dearly.

I am Elliot’s sister Susan and I would like to thank all of his wonderful friends who called me and also left these beautiful messages.

He was truly a one of a kind human being and my heart is truly broken as he was not only my brother but my best friend. He loved working for NYCHA and all the friends he has made over the years.

I love him and will miss him dearly, thank you to all.

To Elliot's family, my sincere condolences. Elliot was my first boss when we were assigned to the homeless unit in 1988. Elliot was courageous in expressing his opinion on what was right. Mr. Sole respected him for that but after Mr. Sole retired Elliot was exiled to the Bronx even though it meant a 2 hour commute. I played basketball with Elliot and thought he was one of the finest people I have ever known. Rest in Peace my friend.

Elliot will be missed by all that knew him. I am particular have known of him most of my life. I am 42 years old, when I was a child, my father (Larry ) and him were friends. Over the years I was in many fantasy sports leagues with him, a major passion of him. For at least a decade of those years, Elliot and I were teammates on a fantasy team. I tried to back off his team for years, but he always persisted and didn't let me go. I've been to his apartment a few times for sports research. He also was one of my supervisors at NYCHA. Everyone i know from nycha that knew him, never said a condescending word about him , ever. For a supervisor, that's an accomplishment in himself. He'll be missed by many. My deepest condolences to his entire family!

He may be gone
But will never be forgotten
His body was tired but his spirt lives on
He touched so many in his own way
You will forever be in our hearts
Sleep on!
