Obituary of James Elliott
James Elliott, loving Father, Grandfather and North Park rancher, passed away on November 25, 2011 at home surrounded by family. Jim was born on June 4, 1943 to Buck and Helen Elliott. He was raised in Glendevey, Colorado on his family ranch, and in 1974 he moved to North Park to work on the Petterson Ranch. From 1978 to 1998 he ran the Grizzly Ranch; and from 1998 to 2011 he owned and operated his own construction company. Jim was well known in the community as a successful rancher, a skilled builder and a craftsman of leather. When a neighbor or community member needed a helping hand, he was one of the first people to volunteer. Jim was known for not backing down from anything. He worked hard and truly enjoyed what he did. Jim's love for his family was abundant and his grandchildren held a special place in his life and heart. He is survived by two daughters: Summer Marshal, husband Trip and two grandchildren, James and Roseilyn of Salt Lake City Utah. Jamie Schallot, husband Michael and grandson TJ of Walden Colorado. Two brothers: John Elliott of Walden Colorado, Phil Elliott of Centennial Wyoming. He is preceded in death by his parents and grandparents. A memorial service will be held on Saturday December 3, 2011 at the Wattenberg Center in Walden from 4pm to 6 pm. Jim was a valuable member of this community and will be missed by everyone.
