March 10, 1951 - April 8, 2011
Wm. Andrew Elliott, age 60, died unexpectedly at his home on Friday, April 8th, 2011. Andy, as he was known, was born in Ravenna, Ohio, on March 10, 1951. He is survived by his mother, Edith Elliott, of Warren, Ohio; and one daughter, Lindsay N. Elliott, of Bowling Green, Ohio. His father, William “Bill” Elliott, preceded him in death.
Andy received both his undergraduate degree and master’s degree from Bowling Green State University. He also served as an instructor at BGSU for a number of years. He worked within the community as a counselor for those with addiction issues at the Wood County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, with those incarcerated at the Wood County Justice Center, and with those in crisis as the Director of the Link Crisis Hot Line.
Two of his great life pleasures were motorcycles and running. He enjoyed riding both dirt and road bikes. He also enjoyed running marathons and participating in triathlons.
Those of us who knew him and loved him will miss his smile, his kindness, and his generosity.
A Memorial Service for Andy will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 315 South College Ave., Bowling Green, Ohio on Tuesday, April 19th, 2011, at 3:00 p.m.
