Verner Eugene Elliott, age 79 of Delaware, Ohio, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
He is preceded in death by his parents Thelma Figliola, and Russell Robert Elliott, Sr., stepfather Anthony Figliola, and brother Thomas Elliott.
He is survived by his four sons; Brian Elliott, Keith Elliott, Dean (Melia) Elliott, and Bruce (Cindy) Elliott; his grandchildren Danielle (Josh) Wilson, Derek Elliott, Ryan Roderick-Elliott, and Conner Elliott; great grandchildren Miles and Ava; brother Russell Robert Elliott, Jr. and a special friend to Vern, and our family Missy Giza.
Verner was born on May 17, 1942 and was a lifelong resident of the Columbus area, and loved working at the Columbus Zoo as a young man, retiring many years later from Midwest Acoust-A-Fiber Inc.
He was a simple man who, in retirement, was always busy tinkering outside. He always looked forward to Halloween so he could walk with the kids, and was also known for his outstanding baking skills, whether it be pizzelles or nutrolls. He loved watching Ohio State football, and basketball. It was never Ohio State, it was always just “State”.
We would like to thank Riverside Methodist Hospital and their staff for the best care and comfort they could have possibly given.
Cremation has taken place per his wishes, and a small memorial service will be held at a later date.
