G. Kevin Elliott, 66


G. Kevin Elliott, 66, died on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Mr. Elliott was born March 3, 1955, in Hillsboro, to John R. and Margaret (Nimmons) Elliott.

While studying radio-television at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, he found his best friend, Kim Shaw, and they married in 1979. Together, they raised their beautiful daughter, Anne.

Mr. Elliott spent a trailblazing career in communications and video production, creating his own production company. He worked for the St. Louis Blues and designed programs for many leading companies in a broad range of industries.

Recognized by a St. Louis Emmy award, he brought his creativity and keen sense of fine design to everything he touched, including woodworking, photography, collecting musical instruments and exotic automobiles.

Mr. Elliott was a superb cook, and he and his wife enjoyed entertaining many dinners throughout the years. His most important job, though, was that of a father, and his proudest accomplishment was always his dear daughter.

He loved his adopted town, Dunedin, FL.

Mr. Elliot is survived by his wife; daughter, Anne (David Franklin) Elliott; devoted brothers, Mike (wife Vicki) Elliott and Tim (wife Aby) Elliott; several nieces and nephews; and his loyal greyhound, Firefly, who stood by his side until the end.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
