Robert Edward "Robbie" Elliott Jr.

 

Robert (Robbie) Edward Elliott Jr., 70, of Shelbyville, Indiana passed away on December 31, 2023 at his residence after a lengthy battle with Parkinsons disease.

Robbie was Born on January 9, 1953 to Robert Elliott Sr. and Beverly Elliott in Shelbyville Indiana where he lived his entire life. Upon graduation from Shelbyville High School in 1971, he worked in the family business for several years until he joined the Shelbyville Indiana Fire Department on December 30, 1987 and served until his retirement on January 30, 2009. It was his service to the Fire department that gave Robbie and all of us a sense of pride in his willingness to serve in that capacity. Robbie loved his fellow colleagues, as they did him, and he was truly dedicated to his responsibilities of the cause.

Robbie lived a very admirable simple lifestyle, and was always quick to use his dry sense of humor to brighten up the day. He loved sports and outdoor activities, and was very active during his entire life. He truly will be missed by all who knew him.

Robbie is survived by his parents and three sisters, Pamela Tucker (Dan) of Shelbyville, Theresa Harlan (Joe) of Scottsdale AZ, and Deborah Elliott of Shelbyville.
