Obituary of Larry Loran Elliott

Larry Loran Elliott, 78, lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma on Monday March 28, 2022, at Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach, Missouri.

 

Larry was born January 27, 1944, in Jacksonville, Illinois, the son of Loran & Margueritte (Perry) Elliott.  He grew up in Macomb, Illinois where his parents owned and operated Elliott Shoe Store for several years. He graduated Macomb High in 1963 where he played football and ran track.

 

He married Patricia Madonia at Christ The King Parish in Springfield, Illinois on May 24, 1975. They were married for 15 years, had three children, and frequently vacationed at the Lake of the Ozarks, which later became his home after they separated.

 

Larry retired from the Sheet Metal Workers Local #218. He was a life- long member of the Knights of Columbus.

 

Larry enjoyed genealogy, boating, and hiking. He loved watching football and was an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan.

 

Larry spent the last 20 years of his life with companion Carol England. They loved road trips and camping together in Florida. They eventually turned this hobby into their full-time lifestyle.

 

Larry was best known for his sense of humor and wit and was known to many as “Big Lar.” Some of his favorite times were spent laughing and relaxing with family.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents and several aunt and uncles.

 

He is survived by companion Carol England, his children Andrea, Elana (Truman Flatt), and Nick (Staci) Elliott of Springfield, Illinois; and four grandchildren; Grace, Mason, Cameron, and Rylee.
