Mr. Elliott has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. That's because me and his son Jeff have been best friends since elementary school. The young girl that I was wouldn't have dreamed of calling him "Jack". And that was a hard transition for me as an adult, especially when I became a senior citizen myself. When I first moved in my apartment in 2014, my health began to decline. He was always there for me. Countless trips to the doctor, the hospital, the pharmacy, the grocery store. Always with a smile. Always checking to see if I needed anything. "Call me if you need me", he would say when he'd drop me off. I told him I wished it was me taking care of him, instead of the other way around.

He spoke of his sons with pride. Maybe he wasn't the most demonstrative person, but I know how much he loved them. He devoted his life to taking care of his family, his wife and boys. I admired him more than I can say, for that in and of itself. When Louise was going downhill, he was her tireless advocate.

I wanted to be there today to bid him farewell as they laid him to rest. My health prevented that. Every person at that service would not have been who and what they are, their every success and accomplishment, if not for him.

Goodbye "Mr. Elliott ".

You were one "special" person to know. To his three sons also know that you are in my thought's and prayers. God Bless

When a patient comes into our Chiropractic office, we are supposed to help heal them. Never did I think that patient could help heal me. Mr. Elliott was special from the moment I met him. I lost my dad several years ago and was missing him horribly. I will never forget John telling me that if he had a daughter, he imagined she would be like me. From that moment on, Mr. Elliott was incredibly special to me. Many condolences to his family. He will be missed!!!!

Remembering many happy times camping with the Elliott's and riding along Skyline Drive looking for bears. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

So very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Elliott. We enjoyed hearing his stories here at Hanger Clinic. He always made us laugh before he left.
