Obituary of Stanley E. Elliott
Stanley E Elliott, beloved husband of Lois Elliott (Rice) for an incredible 68 years, passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, September 15, 2023. He valiantly fought the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease and was to celebrate his 85 birthday. He liked to tell he arrived with the big hurricane of September 21, 1938. He was born in Bangor Maine. With his parents Mary Cecile and Stanley I. Elliott he moved to CT attending school in East Hartford, eventually settling in Glastonbury in 1962. He was a proud member of the US Air Force. He retired from the Operating Engineers, Local 478. Throughout the years he also owned and successfully managed a garage and small construction company. His love of family and friends was especially true for his daughters and son-in-laws, Vicki Moreau (Glen), Deborah Beacham (Donald) and Sharon Elliott-Sullivan (Bruce). He is also survived by seven grandchildren; Jason and Marc Moreau, Jazmin Beacham and Heather George, Eva, Dylan and Dr. Aubrey Sullivan. He was loved and cherished by eleven great grandchildren along with many nieces and nephews from Kansas to Maine. He was a proud member of the Hartford Yacht Club, where many happy hours were spent on the CT River in one of the many boats he owned, or cooking for big dinner parties. He served on the Board of Governors and several years as Commodore, receiving many awards for his exemplary contributions. His affinity for cowboy boots and western music set him apart long before they became fashionable. Just imagine his boarding a yacht in cowboy boots at the NY Boat Show! Stanley leaves behind a legacy of love, hard work and cherished memories. He was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Herb and Bob and his sister Sandra Sarotnak. May his kind soul rest in eternal peace, and may his memory live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know him. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. We want to thank his caregivers Vida Addo, Cynthia Danquah and Masonicare Home Health & Hospice.
