Obituary for James C. Elliott

James Clark Elliott
July 23, 1937 – December 24, 2017

James “Jim” Elliott, 80, of Huron, Ohio passed away on Sunday, December 24, 2017 at Firelands Regional Medical Center after a brief illness.

Jim was born on July 23, 1937 in Butler, Pennsylvania to the late Gilbert and Helen (Reott) Elliott.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 59 years, Eileen (Siesel); three sons and their wives; Michael and Tammy, John and Christine, and Kevin and Cheryl Elliott; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. He was fortunate to also have many, many, friends.

He worked at Sandusky International for 44 years. Jim’s family was his “life”, and his greatest joy was spending time with them. He had a great sense of humor which was often on display. He enjoyed traveling; mostly weekend trips with his wife, Eileen. Jim was always involved with his sons; coaching little league, attending their sporting events, and providing guidance. He supported them in all their endeavors throughout their lives. He loved being with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren attending their various activities which kept him young and active. Every new person he met would soon hear a story about one of his grandchildren. Jim was always there for his family and he will be dearly missed.

In addition to his parents, Jim is preceded in death by his brother, Jack; sister, Martha and grandson, Jacob.

Friends will be received on Friday, December 29, 2017 at 4:00pm to 7:00pm at Groff Funeral Homes & Crematory, 1607 E. Perkins Ave, Sandusky. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, December 30, 2017 at 10:00am at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 130 Main St., Milan. Burial will follow in St. Anthony’s Cemetery, Milan.

The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at Firelands for their care and concern.
