OBITUARY

Robert P. Elliott

June 28, 1942March 21, 2017

Robert Paul Elliott, 74, a longtime resident of Portland since 1979, passed away peacefully with family by his side on March 21, 2017. He was beloved husband of the late Sally Elliott, the love of his life. Robert was born on June 28, 1942, in Hartford, CT, a son of the late Stanley and Cecilia (DeGrasse) Elliott. Robert enjoyed his time boating, antiquing, motorcycle riding, and trips to Maine. His family brought him his greatest joys in life. He was a loyal Teamster, working as a truck driver for many years. He used his “truck driver expertise” to teach most of his kids to drive, trucker style. He also enjoyed having dinner at his daughter Sarah's restaurant and insisting he made much better meatballs than Billy! He was adored by all who knew him. Robert will be remembered as “Archie Bunker” to all of his friends and family, who knew the tough & gruff exterior did not reflect what was on the inside. He was a jokester to everyone he cared about, so having his service on April Fool’s Day is fitting. Although he may be leaving behind many unfinished projects he has started over the years, he leaves behind a complete life full of love. Please bring your best jokes and one-liners to the service to share with all. He is survived by his children; Robert “Tommy” Elliott and his wife Leah of Tolland, Kimberly Elliott of Manchester, Missy Haagensen of Colchester, Michael Elliott and his partner Kay of East Hartford, Sarah Elliott-Caratasios and her husband William of Portland, 11 grandchildren; Ashley, Victoria, Thomas, Kasey, Kenneth, Richard, Ryan, Ella, Charlie, Chris and Alex, 4 great grandsons, sister Sandy Sirotnik and her husband Doug, brother Stanley Elliott and his wife Lois, step-daughter Stacey, best friend Maynard Bouchard, several nieces and nephews , and former wives Linda King and Carolyn Lauro who had been a good companion and close friend these last few years. In addition to his parents and his beloved Sally, Robert is predeceased by his brother Herbert Elliott, mother-in-law Minnie and his faithful; four legged canine companion Louie who only predeceases him by 2 weeks. Calling hours will be held on Saturday, April 1st, 11am-1pm, with a Memorial Service to follow immediately at 1pm, at Glastonbury Funeral Home, 450 New London Tnpk., Glastonbury, CT 06033.
