A servant of God, a loving husband, father, grandfather, great- grandfather, brother, and son, Arlin James "Jim" Elliott went to be with God on November 12, 2013 with his family present. He was born June 6, 1934 in Marysville, California and has resided in Klamath Falls Oregon for the past 23 years.
Jim has been an ordained minister for the United Pentecostal Church since 1979. In his earlier years he worked for Baldwin Construction, and many other construction companies. In the 70's he moved his family to Exeter, California to pastor the United Pentecostal Church and continued working construction. He also started up Elliott Auto Sales. His family would consider him a "Jack of All Trades!" Jim loved to preach the Word of God, go fishing, play his guitar, go to the auction, but most importantly, he loved his family.
