He was a banker for most of his life and worked as a loan officer at the First United Bank for 30 years before his retirement.

   Left behind to cherish his memory are his wife, Dana of the home, daughter Jill Elliott of Dallas, Texas, son Justin Elliott and wife Julie of Bozeman, Montana, daughter Jennifer Morse and husband Jacob of Dallas, Texas. Stepchildren include Jack Haggard of Denton, Texas, Jana Neu and husband Marty of Denton, Texas, and Leslye Shin and husband Song of Durant, Oklahoma.
