George W. Elliott III passed in peace to heaven on February 23, 2016 at the age of 85. George will be fondly remembered by his friends and family as a loving father and husband, chronic entertainer, brilliant salesman, lover of history, proud patriot, US Army veteran and a fan of all things John Wayne.

George was born January 3, 1931 to George W. Elliott Jr and Fredonia McKinney Elliott. Growing up in Midland Odessa, George, aka "Skip", fell in love with westerns and the military at an early age. A graduate of Peacock Military Academy in San Antonio, Texas, he would go on to serve in the US Army during the Korean War holding a rank of 1st Lieutenant. Continuing his education at The University of Texas in Austin, he completed his Bachelors of Fine Arts in 1953 and pursued a successful career in Broadcast TV and Radio during the 50's and 60's. In the 1970's, he relocated to Houston, Texas and began his career in insurance as an independent agent where he remained until he retired over 30 years later. George lived to make others smile. He enjoyed serving in the local church, watching old war movies, cheering on Bill O'Reilly each evening, and most of all, spending time with his wife.
