Richard Edward Elliott
Richard E. (Dick) Elliott Jr., 95, of Nampa passed away after a long and amazing life on February 23, 2017 surrounded by family. A viewing for Dick will be March 3, 2017, from 3:00-6:00 p.m. at Zeyer Funeral Chapel, 83 N Midland Blvd in Nampa. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at the Church of the Brethren, 11030 W. Orchard Ave in Nampa, with burial to follow at Melba Cemetery.
On August 11, 1946, Dick married the love of his life Alice Marie Morris. They made their residence in the Bennett area, where they were blessed with 3 children: Donna Lynn, Thomas Richard, and Jeanne Marie. They farmed in Melba and were residence for the next 50 years. Upon their retirement, Dick and Alice Marie spent there winters in Mesa, Arizona where they golfed, adventured, and enjoyed time with friends and family.
Dick is survived by his children Tom (Jill) Elliott of Richland, WA, and Jeanne (Dave) Patterson of Boise, ID; his brother Robert (Bob) Elliott, of Boise, ID, along with 9 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren.
Dick had an amazing and long life. He was a very generous man, to a fault with family, friends, and the community. Up until his death, he was always quick witted and had an amazing sense of humor. Dick was full of life lessons that were passed to his grandkids and great-grandkids. If there was a quote to sum up our father and PaPa it would be the following, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill.
We would like to thank Treasure Valley Hospice and Plantation Place for the exceptional care and emotional support for both Dick and his family. For those wishing, memorial contributions may be sent to Salvation Army, 403 12th Ave S, Nampa, ID 83651 or Lighthouse Rescue Mission, 304 16th Ave N, Nampa, ID.
