Dear Barb, Rich(Tess), Lori (Al), Cheryl, and Beloved Grandchildren,

Today my heart is heavy with sadness for the passing of a Great man. Frank was a kind neighbor who was always looking out for others. He worked hard every day and always had joy in his heart. This is something I learned first hand as the tag along neighbor kid. We moved across the street from the Elliott family in the early seventies. It did not take long to feel welcome at their home! Hospitality and laughter was always guaranteed. So many memories of dinners around their table, horseback riding, camping and mini adventures to Lake Michigan and Hutchins Lake. Frank would include us if he was working on projects in his garage which might be wood working or small engine repair. He encouraged our learning by letting us observe. Once chores were completed he was ready to enjoy a game of cards or his favorite television show. Those who knew Frank understood he loved Jeopardy! This was not just a TV show it was a ritual in the Elliott home. Frank would know the answers prior to the contestants response. If you knew Frank he was always cheerful but his competitive side came out on Thursday nights for bowling at Lakeview Lanes in Douglas. Frank was a great Dad and a wonderful example for his kids. Something else I remember is Frank and Barb would work on a crossword puzzle every night. Many times holding hands as they worked to solve the daily puzzle. Sometimes there was a debate about which word should be used but Frank would take Barb's advice. You could always see their love!

With sincere condolences and much love, JoLene Nagy
