The family of Gregory Ronald
Elliott is saddened to share the news of his passing on Tuesday
September 24, 2019. Greg was 37 years old. He is mourned by his
parents Dr. Bruce and Brenda Elliott and his siblings Dr. Jenny
Elliott (Scott Bardwell), James (Christy Johnson) and Daniel (Holly).
His nephew Gavin and nieces, Sadie, Fiona and Eliza will miss their
uncle Greg who often had candies just for them.
Greg had been quietly suffering
with bipolar disorder for the last few years. Sadly, he kept much of
his fight with this illness to himself, so his passing will be a shock
to many. The disorder is insidious, and Greg grew weary of struggling
for a more peaceful and less tormented life.
Greg was an accomplished
electrician and took great pride in his work. He excelled at board
games and loved playing video games and the guitar. His quick wit and
tremendous vocabulary allowed Greg to be a very funny guy. Time spent
with family and at the cottage, fishing, hiking and canoeing was
treasured. Our sweet dog Chase was a gentle companion and a great
comfort to him.
Our world is a lesser
place without him. Greg was a kind and thoughtful soul whom
we loved and dearly miss.
A Memorial Gathering will take
place on Sunday, October 20 at 2 p.m. at Victoria Park East Golf Club,
1096 Victoria Rd. S., Puslinch. Friends and family are
welcome. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to
the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).
