Obituary for David A. Elliott

While feeling the love of his family, David Ashley Elliott, passed away March 20, 2014 at North Care Hospice House. David was born on August 19, 1932 in Washington Courthouse, Ohio, to Edward and Corda Elliott. He served as a Captain in the U.S. Army and was stationed in France, where he met his beautiful wife, Arlette Filleul, while David was transportation officer and Arlette was an interpreter. David returned to the United States to complete his degree at Ohio State University, all while corresponding with Arlette in France, proposing marriage in a letter. They were married in Arlette's home town of La Baule and returned to Columbus, Ohio to begin their life together and start their family.
