Dick Elliott was a great friend, neighbor and mentor. He was always ready to lend a hand and helped out everyone in the neighborhood. We will keep Dick and the entire family in our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace my friend.

Dick and me were good friends in our teens. We both went in the service and lost touch with each other. He was a good guy who always had a big smile and hearty laugh. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP my old friend. Bob Melchiori
