In Celebration of

John Elliott

December 26, 1947 -  February 22, 2023

It is with profound sadness that the family of John Elliott announce his peaceful passing on February 22nd 2023 at the age of 75 after a well fought battle with brain cancer.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 49 years, Diane; children Blair (Emma) and Chris; grandchildren Kiely, Liam, Lucas and Cailin; great-grandchild Banks; his siblings Peter (Linda) and Eileen (Brad); as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
He was predeceased by his loving parents (John and Eileen).
After a very successful career in business, John enjoyed an early retirement with Diane; spending many a winter in St-Augustine, Florida. He spent his summers on the golf course, out on a nice walk and many an afternoon enjoying a coffee at a local shop with Diane and friends. Not satisfied with having concurred the business world, John set his sights on Hollywood. He could be seen on stage in many a production from the Lakeshore players or Hudson Community Theatre; as well as a small recurring role on a CBC drama.
A Celebration of Life will be held on March 4th at 6p.m. at Belvedere Funeral Complex, 22025 Trans-Canada Hwy, Senneville, Quebec H9X 0B2, 514 457-4440.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence for their excellent care and compassion. In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Residence in his memory.

He was a great friend to me over the years and a great man. I will miss him immensely whether playing golf or our winter get togethers.

So long friend.

John, you were the best friend, confidant, colleague, fellow actor and all round good bloke that anyone could wish for. I will remember our times together with fondness, and your passing with sadness. RIP mon ami.

I met John almost 25 years ago when he played my father in a play. We immediately developed a deep friendship. From that summer on we also became golf buddies and golfed tens of rounds together every year. As Diane was his bookkeeper and all around GM, I thank her for letting him get out there as often as we did. The awesome memories we shared together are literally too numerous to count.
John also came into my life at a time when my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and his friendship played a big part in helping me get through that.
Thank you Diane for allowing me to visit him in Palliative care, say goodbye, and tell him I loved him. My deepest condolences to you, Blair and Chris for your loss.
John was a precious gem of a man.
I will miss you John, and yes, you can have another mulligan...

John and I met 11 years ago for a movie shoot in the Laurentians. The film never made it into the cinemas but my friendship with this wonderful man lived on. When we saw each other for the last time, he had just brilliantly completed a two-men play at the "Hudson Village Theatre" . After the show which must have been exhausting, he took the opportunity to greet us in the foyer. I will miss him dearly. Long after our first movie shoot we met occasionally in a café in Montreal to exchange thoughts and ideas. I haven't met many more decent men than John. R.I.P. my friend. (I dedicated a blogpost to this wonderful man. It's in German, my native language. You could always have it translated into the language of your choice:
