Mr. William Hugh Elton Jr., 76, of Pooler, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019, at Hospice Savannah.
He was born in Savannah and was preceded in death by his parents, William Hugh Elton Sr. and Elizabeth Sheppard Gnann; his mother-in-law, Lizzie Crabb Copeland; and his stepmother, Mildred Elton. He was a member of the Bloomingdale First Baptist Church and was ordained as a deacon in 1976. He was employed many years for Massey Funeral Home and retired from the Georgia Port Authority. After retirement, he worked part-time at Strickland Funeral Home in Pooler and later at the Effingham County Sheriff's Office serving as a bailiff in the court system where his co-workers became part of his family. He was an avid fisherman but his greatest joy was spending time with his family.
Survivors include his wife, Cheryl C. Elton; two sons and daughters-in-law, William Hugh Elton III and Rhonda, and Sanford Elton and Erin; grandchildren, Marc, Zach, Annie, Josie and Caleb; sisters, Nancy Gunter and Joette Stripling; a number of nieces and nephews and his dogs, Buddy and Ethel.
