Michael H. Elliott 73yrs old 11/28/1948 - 11/15/2022 Our father passed nearly five weeks after a fall resulting in a traumatic brain injury. He was tough as nails and just as stubborn, presenting as grumpy but had the softest heart. He had wise words to share based on his experiences, a calming presence and a sense of humor full of sarcasm.
Mike enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, riding his motorcycle and spending time with his family & friends. In his later years he enjoyed movies, junk food and whiskey. He spent the majority of his career putting up fences and building decks, working for Tri-City Fence then he started Elliott’s Custom Fence.
