Obituary for Robert Brewer Elliott

Robert Brewer (Bob) Elliott, 80, crossed over to be welcomed by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ May 18, 2020, after peacefully passing away at home in the presence of his family.
Bob was born at his grandparents’ farmhouse near Milton, Kansas, January 11, 1940, the son of W H and Lois Elliott. After earning his BA at Wichita University and Master of Education at Pittsburg State, Bob had a long career as an educator, student career advocate, and member liaison/legislative representative for Wichita Federation of Teachers. He concluded his working career as a real estate appraiser. Bob loved working with his hands and during summer breaks from teaching he operated his small roofing company, teaching his sons the value of hard work and a job well done. There was no artifice or extravagance about Bob, and you always knew where he stood on all matters. Bob's highest priorities were always his love and service to his Lord, as well as his love and devotion to his family and friends.

I got to know Bob when he worked at the teachers union. He was a hard worker who liked helping people. Bob was a good man. My sympathy to Bob's family and friends as they say goodbye. May he rest in peace.
