ELLIOTT, James Herbert

1925 - 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Jim Elliott announces his sudden but peaceful passing on Feb 11, 2021. He was born on January 26, 1925 on a farm near Beebe (now Stanstead) and lived in the town his entire life including seventy years in the house that he and Doris built. Jim had an inquisitive mind and a fascination with vehicles. He ran a bicycle repair shop in his youth and then went into business with his brothers Malcolm and Albert at Elliott’s Garage. His mother is said to have remarked that “Jim is only happy when he is burning gasoline”!

He met and married “the love of his life”, Doris Irene Drew while they were both working at Butterfield’s during the war.

As far as we girls were concerned, Dad knew everything, Dad could make anything, and Dad could fix anything. He was quite simply the best father anyone could ever wish for. He and Mum provided a rich family life that included hours of fun at our cabin on Lake Memphremagog. He was a master mechanic and had a following of like-minded friends both young and old. His hobbies included refurbishing older model vehicles and countless small engines, collecting “antiques”, making maple syrup and vegetable gardening. He had a long and interesting life and often said, “I was born in the horse and buggy age, and now I am living in the digital age”. In recent years, he mastered using an iPad so he could FaceTime and Skype with his daughters who live in the west. He did, however, quip that he would like to take it apart and see how it works!

He was able to live in his own home thanks to the support of family, neighbours and friends. He was predeceased by his wife Doris and nine siblings and their spouses. He is survived by his daughters Wendy (Dick) White, Jean (Wendall) Hartley and Janet (Todd) Chriest; his grandchildren Todd (Catherine) White, Gina (Kevin) Ramroop, Tim (Heather) White, Jason (Melissa) Hartley, and his nine great-grandchildren Kira, Darren, Ethan, Tristan, Cora, Marina, Mackenzie, Caitlynn, and Nathan.

He was a much loved, highly respected, patient and understated man who will be sadly missed by so many. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice or do something special for a neighbour. Arrangements are with Cass Funeral home. A private family celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

All of Jims wonderful family!

We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to all of Jims' family and also to his many friends as well. Jim was an amazingly intelligent man who has now taken alot of older mechanical knowledge along with him as well as his wonderful sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him( both the young and the old.)Jim will now be busy creating motorized wings for the angels in his spare time.

We feel the shock of this sudden loss of Uncle Jim. So many memories for us.

To me, (Ron) he was my hero and much of my life decisions came from my respect for his work ethic and his humble knowledge in so many fields.

I regret that COVID 19 prevented my brother, Robert, and I from visiting him this past summer 2020.

Thinking of you all, Ron and Cynthia Drew

On behalf of the Town of Stanstead, please accept our sincere condolences at the passing of Mr. Elliott, born and raised in Beebe/Stanstead. We were proud to have featured him as Mr. January in the 2021 calendar with his beloved Model-T, and we later learned January was his birth month. May your hearts be comforted.

Jim’s family

I am very sorry for your loss. I am sending my deepest sympathy at this difficult time. It is always difficult to lose a parent, but, Covid has made it even worse. Wendy, it was lovely to see you and Dick at the Homecoming. I’m sure your father enjoyed that visit as well.
