John Glyn Elliott
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Glyn Elliott on July 1, 2019, age 67, of Calgary, formerly of Amherst.
Born in Amherst, NS, he was the son of the late Diana and Wendell Elliott.
John attended Vocational School in Springhill and received his degree in electronics. He moved to Ottawa after finishing vocational school, where he worked with his dad at Elliott's Esso.

Eventually moving to Calgary where he spent the rest of his life working for the Alberta Food Centre where he worked there for 35 years. Everyone loved John, he was hard working, loyal, trustworthy, fun to be around and kind. He would give the shirt off his back and never expect anything in return.
