On December 31st 2014 William Kerr Elliott passed away at the age of 89.
Bill was born in Pittsburgh, Pa to the parents of William C Elliott and Hattie Belle Marsh Elliott on Feb 23rd 1925. Bill was a veteran of WWII serving in the 333rd Airdrome Squadron of the Army Air Corp. After the war Bill earned his Master's degree in education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Throughout Bill's life he enjoyed several activities. Wood working and taking care of a 10 acre farm took up a lot of his time in the latter years. He enjoyed many family activities with his children and grandchildren, and was also an excellent artist. He was very involved at the 1st Baptist Church of Watsonville. Serving his fellow man and Jesus Christ were at the center of his life. In all that he did he wanted to bring glory to the Lord.
Bill is survived by his 5 children, Peggy Campbell, Steve, Clay, Bill, and Stu Elliott. He had 4 siblings, Jean Carlson, Nancy Collie, Lawrence, and Rodney Elliott. Lawrence is the only sibling that remains alive. He has 20 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren. His wife of 63 years Margaret Jean Richardson Elliott passed away last Easter Sunday April 20th.
Bill's legacy is one of love for family and friends. We take comfort and peace in the blessed hope of seeing him again in heaven.
