Bob is a veteran of World War II having joined the National Guard in 1941.  Soon after he joined the National Guard WWII broke out and he was sent to Africa, the British Isles, Italy and Sicily.  He served in the Army, (Division or Battalion?) and attained the rank of Sergeant.  He played in the band entertaining the troops and following the Bob Hope show.  He was discharged from the Army after the War ended in 1945.


Bob was the only child of George and Minnie Elliott, and was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota.  He graduated from Duluth Central High School where he was the drum major for the band.  He was extremely talented on the string bass, bass guitar, tuba and all brass instruments.  After the War, Bob attended college at the University of Minnesota where he met Margaret Dorothy Nachtwey.  They were married in 1946.  After their marriage, Bob graduated from college.  Bob then began his career as an insurance salesman for Allstate Insurance.  He also was part of a band playing the string bass and later playing the bass guitar.  He did many dance jobs in the Duluth area, including working at the Black Bear in the Hotel Duluth.  After retirement, Bob picked up the game of golf and played up until last summer.


Bob will be laid to rest at Fort Logan, Colorado, alongside of other veterans who so gallantly served their Country.  We love you Dad, Grandpa, Bob.
