James Elliott Obituary
Elliott, James
1932 - 2017
James David Elliott, age 85, of Upper Arlington, passed away peacefully in his home accompanied by his wife. He fought a long and courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma and Renal Failure, living well beyond the medical estimates. Jim was born September 19, 1932 in Kenmare, North Dakota to the late Lynn and Thelma Elliott. He was a graduate of Kenmare High School. He respectfully served in the United States Air Force and was stationed in England where he met and then married his wife of 62 years, Mary Frances Coral Darville. Jim started and completed his entire work career in management positions within The Boeing Company. He worked on many projects for Boeing including airplanes, missiles, etc, but his favorite was the years he worked on the Space Shuttle. Jim and Mary moved all over the country working on these projects for Boeing. Jim created wonderful, lasting memories when he introduced us to hunting, fishing, Scuba diving, camping and enjoying the great outdoors. We spent many summers camping across the mountains of the western states, starting in a tent and then moving up to a camper. Jim was an avid and voraciously reader who loved to learn. He was a jack-of-all-trades and could fix almost anything. He was an amazing artist and his remarkable paintings currently hang throughout their home. Those left to carry on his memories are his wife, Mary; his sons, Mark Elliott (Chrystal) and Paul Elliott; his daughter, Denise Rodriguez (Elias). He has two grandchildren that he cherished, grandson, Daniel Rodriquez and granddaughter, Alexandra Elliott. Jim was a very private man and requested that we not have a viewing or a service celebrating his life but instead that we focus on supporting each other, especially his wife. In lieu of flowers, the family would like expressions of sympathy to be made in the form of a donation to their special charity: Wounded Warriors Project, PO Box 758517, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8517. 877.832.6997 or https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
