We extend our deepest sympathies. Charles was always so kind when we would see him. I enjoyed seeing him at the auctions. His smile was contagious. He will be missed. Praying for y’all.
Charles A. Elliott, 81, went home to be with the Lord on August 3, 2021. He was born in Springfield, Tennessee to Henry and Maude (Craig) Elliott on October 10, 1939.
Charles was a great man. He attended high school in Nashville, TN; and then moved to Evansville in 1962. He worked for Uncle Charlie’s Meat Plant and later learned skills in drywall and painting. He first opened Elliott’s Drywall, Painting, & Spray Texture in 1976; which he eventually renamed Elliott’s Home Improvements. He was a business owner for over 45 years; and retired in 2002. He enjoyed going to auctions as well as buying fixer upper cars to restore. He was also a member of Heritage Baptist Church. He was a selfless man who loved people. Charles loved God and all his family. He was a loving husband, father, and Papaw. He truly lived to honor Jesus Christ every single day.
Charles is survived by his loving wife, Edith; his children, Bryan Elliott and Cindy Lemon; his grandchildren, Tyler Elliott, Logan Elliott, Ivy Lenko, Samantha Lemon, Christina Brewer, and Meredith Lemon; his sisters Ruth Gregory and Robbie Gayle Reed; and many loving nieces and nephews.
