Read more about the life story of Louis and share your memory.
Louis Elijah Elliott departed this life on Monday, July 31, 2023, in Sunbury, NC. He was born October 5, 1939, in Tyner, NC. (Chowan County). He was the eighth child of twelve children.
Louis joined the Greater Welch’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church at an early age under the leadership of Rev. Davis. Louis lived and attended Chowan County School System. He was a farmer for many years working in Chowan and Gates County. He worked for the Hill Farm in Corapeake, NC and later worked for James Earl Brinkley in Sunbury, NC until retiring.
Louis loved to play baseball and his position was first base. He could hit and dance while waiting for the ball to be thrown to him. He loved to play horseshoes, crossword puzzles, and any type of card game was his thing. During his lifetime you may have seen him visiting his hometown of Chowan County visiting family members, pulling watermelon, or on occasion at the river getting fish.
Louis was a cool uncle who enjoyed dancing, especially doing James Brown. Back in the day, he wore a process hairstyle which he was a bad cat. He loved to look sharp. During his lifetime you would always see him spending time together with his brothers and family members. As time changed, we knew he would be with his card friends.
Louis is predeceased by his parents: William and Sindell Elliott, Sr.; siblings, Mary Holley, Alice Surgeon, William (Buddy) Elliott, James Elliott, Rosenell Nowell, Charlie Elliott, Betty Elliott, and Wynona Elliott.
Louis leaves to cherish his memory: his sister, Helen (Thomas) Jordan; his brothers: Ercelle (Mabel) Elliott, and Joseph Leroy (Vencine) Elliott, brother-in-law, Walter Nowell, a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
A celebration of Life will take place on Friday August 11, 2023, 11am at Greater Welch's Baptist Church in Tyner, North Carolina.
Final resting place will be at the Greater Welch's Family Cemetery.
