Our dear bother Jim, age 59, passed on to be with the Lord the night of August 1, 2016, in Moab, Utah, while reading his Bible.

He was born and lived his earlier years in Moab. Early on, his family moved to Idaho City, Idaho, where he spent many years before returning to his birthplace in Moab.

Jim grew to be a strong believer and was saved and baptized in Idaho City in the year 2000.

Jim was very well liked by all who knew him and was known for his great sense of humor and gentle spirit.

Elliott and his wife Jackie Elliott, of Idaho City, Idaho; and his younger sister Pamela G. Link and her husband Steve Link, of Boise, Idaho. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, cousins and their families, all of whom loved Jim very much. He will be greatly missed by all his family and many friends.
