In his honor of being a movie buff, liking corny phrases and always a jokester, the family came together and thus it was called “The Great Gathering”.

He attended Brighton High School before moving to Cave Creek, AZ, where he graduated from Ocotillo High School. He loved tinkering with cars and was an avid gun enthusiast.

Had been fighting the after effects of Paraganglioma that required removal of this tumor on his carotid artery, creating extensive nerve damage that caused great frustration and chronic pain making his being a quintessential foodie extremely difficult, as most food varieties made eating a chore. One of his greatest joys was watching his 5 year old eat a delicious hamburger after a day being outdoors and enjoying some good old fashion tomfoolery. His quick sense of humor and beautiful smile will be deeply missed

He enjoyed a career in civil contracting as a heavy equipment operator and foreman. Had the quick ability to learn any heavy equipment that was put in front of him. If a piece of equipment was equipped with a GPS control system Elliott termed that “The Bees I could have even been king. But in my own way, I *am* king… Hail to the king, baby. Knees”. He took great pleasure in outperforming schedule expectations and solving complicated mechanical challenges.

Elliott is survived by his two children Caspian Neff (mother Amanda Brennan), Lillian Neff (mother Katie Kentner), parents; Gregory and Jodie Neff (step mother), Siblings; H. Gabrielle Neff (children Keaton Neff and Elizabeth Greenwood), Rachel (Nicholl) Lutterman (husband Zak and children Madison and Bella), Tim Nicholl (wife Jessica and child Kylee), Anthony Nicholl (wife Brandy and child William) and a host of other relatives and good friends.

He was preceded in death by his birth mother; Heather (Montague) Neff, Grandmother; Joyce Moonen Neff, Aunt; Deborah Lynn Balka and a multitude of other relatives.
