John Vincent Elliott, Sr.

Passed Away: July 7, 2020

John Vincent Elliott Sr., loving husband, thoughtful son, dedicated father, passed away unexpectedly on July 7th, 2020 at the age of 69. John was born and raised in Detroit Michigan.  Williamsburg VA was a place that he talked about living for years, so this was where he settled.  John was most known for always working hard, and fixing things.  His mechanical aptitude carried forward in everything he did, from machines to people.  John was known to be there to fix what was broken.  He was always there when needed and could always be counted on. John met the love of his life on April 6th 1971 and from that point on, his life changed course.  John was a central part of all the family as he was loved by all the kids.   The kids always looked forward to his games and him playing tricks on them, hiding their shoes, pretending to wear their jackets, taking their noses.  Anything for a Laugh.

John was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Lillian Elliott.  He is survived by his wife, the Love of his Life of 46 years, Loreen (Paddock) Elliott; Daughter, Cynthia (Michael) Darr; Son, John (Melissa) Elliott, Grand Children; Alexandria Elliott, Lillian Elliott, Austin Elliott, Elliott Darr, Logan Elliott, Sakura Elliott, and Evelyn Darr; Siblings, Brian (Marilyn) Elliott, Kathleen (Bob) Garvey, Kevin (Peggy) Elliott, Carolyn (Paul) Falcone, Michael (Cathy) Elliott, Chris (Sherry) Elliott, Maureen (Bob) Speer, Stephen (Julie) Elliott and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

There will be a service to celebrate his life Saturday, July 25th, at 1:00 pm at Bucktrout Funeral Home.
