January 24, 1931 - August 14, 2021
T. Wayne Elliott, 90, of Akron, our hardworking and devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on Saturday, August 14, 2021, with his family by his side. Wayne was born on January 24, 1931 at home in Akron, delivered by Leona Rae. He was the son of the late Thomas and Flossie (McDonald) Elliott. Wayne graduated from Akron High School, class of 1949, and went on to attend farming classes at Michigan State University. Wayne carried on the family legacy of working on the farm, which was a true passion of his. On August 16, 1958, Wayne married the love of his life, the former Joan Gordon. Their marriage was blessed with almost 63 years, two wonderful children, and countless memories. Wayne was the former director of Akron State Bank, a member of the former Akron Rotary Club, and a member of Fairgrove Presbyterian Church. He was a very hard worker and loved farming. Wayne’s love of Gunsmoke was unsurpassed; it was one one of his most favorite pastimes. After retirement you could always find him resting or playing with his faithful companion, Eerie. Wayne will be missed dearly. Wayne leaves to carry on his legacy, his devoted wife, Joan; children, Lynda Elliott and Tom (Sue) Elliott; furbaby, Eerie; along with several nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to his parents, Wayne was welcomed home to heaven by his sister, Marilyn (Amil) Storm. Wayne’s Graveside Committal will be held at a later date at Demorest Cemetery, Akron, Michigan. Final arrangements have been entrusted to Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 821 N. Pine Rd., between Ridge & Center. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Fairgrove Presbyterian Church, the International Essential Tremor Foundation or the American Diabetes Association.
