1959 – 2014
Gregg Elliot died last week in Nelson, BC at the age of 55. He is survived by his brother Grant (Marty Sutmoller), his three children Liam, Sean, and Colleen, and their mother, Maureen.
Gregg was born in New Westminster, BC and grew up on the west coast in Surrey, Brentwood Bay and Sidney. He loved camping, hiking, diving, and exploring the Gulf Islands. After graduating from the University of Victoria in 1982, Gregg moved to Calgary to pursue his career as a geophysicist in the oil and gas industry; there he married Maureen and together they raised their children Liam, Sean, and Colleen. Gregg loved travelling with his family, both abroad and to “the farm” near Provost. In the last year he was transitioning to retirement in Nelson, BC where he had fallen in love with the landscape and the community.
