CandleSo many of my JH and HS memories are of Mr. E. He was a wonderful teacher, mentor and friend. I only wish I could thank him for the education I received. I turned it into a career path that I absolutely love as an Admin Asst. and I can only hope I'm doin' him proud. Rest easy, Mr. E., thank you, and you will be so missed.

Mr Elliott left a beautiful mark on all of us. Whenever I think of what it means to be a great teacher, and a wonderful human. I always think of Mr. Elliott. The skills he gave all of us to succeed and be the best we could be are irreplaceable and priceless. He was a wonderful man and a pillar in the community. His memories will live on in all of us. Rest easy and fly high Mr. Elliott.

Jennifer and family, we will forever remember Elliott as a great friend! And, of course, he became a friend due to fishing and hunting!!

CandleOur sympathy goes out to the Elliott family. Rich always impressed us as a fine man, ready to smile and with a happy hello. He always asked us about our children. Thank you for being part of our lives. Darrell & Marsha Houser

Mr. Elliot always was excited to see me and give me a hug. He was so supportive of me becoming a teacher. Throughout my time in college him and Mrs. Elliot would take me to lunch at the Mexican restaurant in Oakland. He was such a bright person and will be missed very much.

Jennifer, Amy, Bret and family, so sorry for your loss. Rich was a great guy and will be greatly missed by all of us. So enjoyed our country club visits, how excited he was to meet Mekara again at her graduation reception!! And will never forget him after Michelle fainted in his class room in HS!! “She fell over, she just fell over!!!”
Our sympathies,
Rodney and Vicki Palmer

Rich, I will miss your hugs. To the family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Michelle, Paul and Bailey Faxon.

Mr. Elliott was one of my favorite teachers. I used to get out of study hall so I could practice typing. Instead, we would talk about sports, life, etc.
He even wrote a poem about me when I missed the bus. He made me feel special. I am saddened to learn of his passing.
