John D. Elliott

“And we know…All things work together for good to those that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose”…Romans 8:28

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in His way…Psalm 37:23

Talcott- John Denis Elliott, 83 of Talcott and Beckley, went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 26, 2014. At home, during long months with Mesothelioma from Asbestosis, he was attended by the nurses and therapists of Amedysis Home Health Care of Ronceverte, WV. During his final weeks, the nurses and attendants of Hospice of Southern West Virginia of Beckley, WV lovingly ministered to him, making his last weeks with us as comfortable and pleasant as could be.

He was the son of Avery and Annadel Elliott and the son-in-law of Kyle and Naomi Lilly, all now with the Lord.

John is survived by his wife, Carol Elliott of Talcott, WV, Carol’s sister and brother Joyce Lilly of Beckley, WV, Kyle Lilly, II of Beckley, WV, nephew, Kyle (Trey) Lilly, III of Beaver, WV, nephew, John Cogar of Glade Springs, WV, nephew, Timothy Lilly of Charleston, WV, niece Tara Cogar of Beckley, WV and several grandnephews and a grandniece. John is also survived by sisters, Laura Hewlett and Mary Barnum of Florida, Lee Berti of Virginia, Hazel Knuffkee of New York, Wilma Dills of North Carolina and several nieces and nephews.

John loved the Lord, actively served Him and was most content when at church, working in all phases of the ministry. After completing Bible College, he worked in Prison Ministry, his Church, the Bus Ministry and Missions. John had a heart for Missions, staying in contact with, and supporting, missionaries across the country and in many foreign countries. John was a Gideon, out of the Beckley, WV camp.

Having served in the United States Navy during the Korean War, he loved his Country and held great love and respect for Veterans, especially those who fought to keep us safe and then found themselves in need of medical care. He had great respect and was thankful to the Veterans Medical Center in Beckley, WV for the care and encouragement the doctors, nurses, technicians and office staff had given him.

He was a barber and hairstylist for over twenty years. For many years, he drove a semi in Florida carrying materials to the large commercial nurseries. After retirement, John drove for ESPN for several years, moving broadcasting equipment across the country to different sporting events. John was always busy; he liked working with leather, upholstery, carpentry, automotive, electrical, and plumbing. He felt God had blessed him with wonderful neighbors and he derived great joy from working with the men on various projects.

John felt the final thing he could do for others would be to leave his body to West Virginia University’s Human Gift Registry for research in hopes of saving a life after he was in Heaven.

John and Carol were touched by and thankful for all the calls, cards, letters and food sent during his long time of illness.

As John always said, “Keep looking up!”
