Charles Leo Elliott, Jr. was born on the 18th of March 1935, in Baltimore, Maryland the son of Charles Leo Elliott, Sr. and Barbara Smith Elliott. He passed away on Monday, the 4th of November 2019.

Charlie grew up in the Baltimore area attending the college preparatory and military academy The McDonogh School. He enjoyed athletics and competition. He was a running back for The McDonough school and later a running back for the 150 lb. football team at Princeton University. He lettered in football, baseball and lacrosse.

After he graduated from Princeton University, Charlie served in the Navy as Lieutenant Junior Grade commanding a team on a destroyer escort. After his Naval service Charlie earned his Master of Business Administration from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He met his first wife there, Susan Elizabeth Ley Elliott, who is the mother of their two sons.

Charlie was a hardworking man who had a long and prosperous career in finance and corporate valuation. His career success culminated in his formation of the business partnership called Howard Frazier Barker Elliott.

Houston is where he called home for the last forty years, raising his two sons Christopher and Andrew. He was a caring and generous father and grandfather always making sure his family was cared for and provided for. He was an avid reader and loved books on history, war, science and art.

Charlie is survived by his sons Christopher and Andrew (and daughter-in-law Jennifer) and sister Barbara, as well as his three lovely granddaughters Alexandra, Sarah and Julia.

Charlie was a great guy that I enjoyed working with first at Underwood, Neuhaus starting in 1978, and with whom I kept in touch for years as we both went our separate ways. We were more friends than business associates. We would for many years enjoy an occasional lunch together to discuss business in general and just get caught up personally. While from different backgrounds we had much in common. He was a good man that lived a good life.

Charlie was my good friend for almost 40 years and my business partner for many years. When I moved to Houston in 1991 Charlie took me to lunch my first day of work even thought we were competitors. My wife and I would go on double dates with him and his latest girlfriend and visited each others homes. Charlie was a delight to be around. He always had something to say and was a good story teller and funny person. He cared deeply for his friends and his family. Although I did not see him much during these last few years I thought of him fondly and remember our friendship and business partnership as a big part of my life. I will miss him greatly.
