Michael J. Elliot Obituary
Michael J. Elliott was born on Dec. 14, 1950 in Ponca City, OK to Myron K. Elliott (deceased) and Bobbye Jean Elliott. He died at home on Nov. 21, 2017. He is survived by his wife, Tresa I. Elliott; 2 sons, Stephen Elliott and Michael D. Elliott; a daughter-in-law, Tonya; 3 grandchildren, Jonathan, Laura, and Heather Elliott; 1 sister, Patti Elliott; his mother, Jean Elliott; aunts, uncles, cousins; and numerous friends.

Michael's family moved to Alamogordo in 1956. He graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1969. In 1970 he joined the Navy. He served as a jet mechanic for 20 years, at which time he moved back to Alamogordo with his family. Even though he had retired, he wanted to keep busy so he worked at various jobs; K-Mart, Coulston Foundation, Culligan Water, and Grace United Methodist Church. He was the coordinator for GUMC Labor Day Campout for eight years. He also served on the GUMC Board of Trustees for approximately twenty years.

Michael was a kind and gentle man who loved life. He always saw the good in people and he made friends easily. He was willing to help others in need and never expected anything in return. He enjoyed working on cars and building them" from the ground up." He loved to laugh and have fun with his sons, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. He enjoyed being with people.

We will have a Celebration of Life service on Dec. 1, 2017 at Grace United Methodist Church at 2:00 P.M. in Alamogordo, New Mexico.

The Elliott family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
