Obituary

Dr. George A Elliott, Jr. passed peacefully from this earth on June 1st, 2020, with his family at his side. A rosary will be held on Friday, June 5th, led by Deacon Greg George, at OakCrest Funeral Home at 6:00 PM. Visitation will follow from 6:30 – 8:00PM.

A funeral service will be held at 10:30AM on Saturday, June 6th, conducted by Fr Edwin Kagoo, at OakCrest Funeral Home with burial following at Oakwood Cemetery.

Dr Elliott was born August 26, 1933 in Camden, Arkansas. He attended Fairview schools and worked at Hurley’s Printing Company in Camden, Arkansas prior to moving to Pasadena, Texas and graduating from high school. He then attended Midwestern University on a band scholarship. He proudly served in the United States Army from 1954 to 1956, deploying to Korea, toward the end of the Korean War.

George returned to Camden to again work at Hurley’s and resume his college studies. His lifelong friend and co-worker, Bob Posey, convinced George to move to Texas to attend Sam Houston State University, where he majored in Printing Management. While there, he also earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration, taught college courses and attended Texas A & M University, where he earned his Doctoral Degree in Educational Administration.

After teaching at Sam Houston State University, he moved to Waco, Texas to serve at Texas State Technical College (TSTC). During his many years at TSTC, he served as print shop director, professor, department chair and division director.

He enjoyed his students and his close friends at TSTC including Ray Sancton, Jim Newton, David White, Bob Davis, Bill Cox and Gene Rejcek. He retired from TSTC in 1998. He then enjoyed his full-time hobby – reading.

Prior to TSTC/Waco, Sam Houston State University provided more lifelong relationships for Dr Elliott. He met and married Elaine Ann Slott of New Waverly, Texas. He also met another lifelong friend - Ed McCaskill of Texas City, Texas.

He was preceded in death by his beloved brothers James Elliott and Wyley Jack Elliott, his mother Adele Mathews and stepfather Newton Mathews, his father George A Elliott and stepmother Clidell Elliott, his nephew David Elliott, his great niece Sydney Galway, and his friend Bobby Posey.

He is survived by his wife, Elaine Slott Elliott of Waco, daughters, Rachel Nix and her husband Wayne Nix of East Camden, Ark, Rebecca Tucker and husband Bill Tucker of Waco, and daughter Robin Elliott of Waco. He is also survived by his baby brother Lawrence Elliott and wife Frances of Harmony Grove, Ark, brother Billy Bob Elliott of Troup, TX and stepbrother Bobby Mathews and wife Brenda of Camden, Ark; sisters-in-law Judy Elliott of Magnolia, Ark and Betty Leamons of Camden, Ark and brother-in-law Gerald Slott and wife Schanette Slott of New Waverly, TX, and close cousins Tommy Belk and wife Alma Ruth, Steve Belk and wife Judy.

Additional family members and friends include his grandchildren David Nix and wife Becky, Katie Nix Ratzbeug and husband Carl, Georgeanna Tucker and Houston Tucker; his great-grandson Gavin Elliott Ratzburg; his nieces and nephews Stephen Elliott and wife Kim, Kathy Daniels and husband Ricky, Jay Elliott and wife Lisa, Beth Galway and husband Dan, Mike Elliott and wife Donna, Joshua Slott and wife Tracey and Jacob Slott and wife Holly.

He also is survived by his great friend “Uncle” Ed McCaskill and his wife Merle.

The family wishes to thank David and Becky Nix for their compassionate, dedicated care to George in his final months, Bill Tucker for his care and assistance in many ways, Margaret Waff, David and Kathy White, Texas Home Health and Nurse Maegan and Dr Patrick Partin and the staff at Bellmead Scott & White Clinic for their wonderful care of their husband, father, grandfather and friend.

I first met George at Sam Houston State University in early 1970s when he served as the Faculty Adviser for Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. George was well liked and respected by our fraternity and students in the print department. A good man I was fortunate to know and will long remember. Rest In Peace George.
