Remembering Mac Elliot
From: Maurice & Gwen (McKay)Batterman
Our deepest sympathy to the family of Mac Elliott. Mac was the kindness most caring man, always a smile and a "how are you". Mac was always concerned about what was going on in your life & never any mention of his problems. He will be missed
From: Sherry Elliot
Deepest, heartfelt sympathy to Mac's Family. We enjoyed and appreciated being in his presence over the years. A wealth of knowledge to be sure. A visit from Mac and Edythe on their road trips was always welcome. Mac and his cousin, Ken(my Dad), thoroughly enjoyed one another's company. Their love and respect for each other was quite apparent. Sincerely, Sherry, Scott, Pat Elliot
From: The Hamill Family
Sincere condolences to the Elliot family. Our parents, Carman and Ruth, lawn bowled with Mac at Chatsworth and spoke highly of Mac and Edith's friendship. Your parents were good to show up at the door with baked goods or flowers to brighten their day. We still have a pretty afghan that your mother gifted them years ago. Treasure your memories.

Dear Tom ,Marie and families. We wish to send our deepest sympathies to you at this time. We have very fond memories of your dad from our days on Elmwood Cres.
From: Barry Laing
I was saddened to hear of Mr. Elliot’s passing. I have many fond memories of life on Elmwood Crescent of which Mr. and Mrs. Elliot were a big part. I will always remember him working in the front office at the old Milton Hospital any time we were visiting there. He always had a smile on his face. My sincere condolences go out to Tom, Marie and the whole family. I am so sorry for your loss.
From: Mike and Jerrie Traynor
We were sadden to learn about Mac’s passing. We so much enjoyed our association with Mac, Edith, Tom and the close knit Elliott family. Mac was very community minded, had a mischievous twinkle in his eye and was a joy to talk to. Both he and Edith loved being part of the Williamsford community but mostly both Mac and Edith were so proud of their children and grandchildren. Mac will be greatly missed but he is now reunited with his beloved Edith and family members that have passed. A good life lived! An inspiration to his family and all of us that knew him. Our heartfelt condolences - our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My condolences to the family. Years ago I was caught in a snowstorm and was stranded in Williamsford. Roads were closed at Chatsworth and I couldn’t get home. Through friends, Mac and Edith came to my rescue and fed me supper and lodging overnight. Always grateful.
From: Elly Pringle Baker
Saddened to hear the passing of Mac. He was such a sweet soul and always a pleasure to deal with at BMO Chatsworth. My deepest sympathy to all of his family.
From: Jim Wilson, Jane McKinnon Wilson & Family

Many fond memories of growing up across the street from the Elliots. Great friends and neighbours. I was so sad to hear of Mr. Elliot’s passing. I remember him as a kind and gentle man that all of the neighbourhood kids looked up to and trusted. I regret that I hadn’t had much contact with him in later years but it was always a pleasure to see him when ever the occasion arose. I will always fondly remember him. My deepest condolences to the Elliot family. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
From: Alan Barr and Carol Barr
Carol and I are saddened to hear of Mac's passing. He and Edith were great sources of support to us, and remained so after we left. Our church has lost a great elder, and supporter. Mac and Edith are now together again. Our condolences to the Elliot family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
From: Bill Uhrig
Many fond memories of both Mac and Edith at Knox Church Milton. Mac and I sang in the choir and with Those Guys form Knox men's choir. Many good times were shared. My late wife just loved both your Mom and Dad, they were very strong in their faith and practised it daily. Mac you are now in God's hands and am sure there is a big celebration going on in Heaven. I know you missed your Edith now you are united again. Rest easy old friend! Bill Uhrig
From: Richard Case
Must echo many comments about how kind, thoughtful and generous Mac was. Numerous fond memories but still chuckle about first Christmas Egg Nog served by Mac in the living room on Elmwood. Condolences to the family.
From: The McComb & Hunter Families
On behalf of the McComb and Hunter family, we send you our sincere condolences on the passing of Mac Elliot. Mac Elliot will always be remembered as Mr. Elliot to my brother Mark and I. Even in our adult lives when we were told we could call him Mac, it just never seemed right or proper. My father, Herbert McComb, is a life long "best" friend of Mac. They met as young boys in school (along with Wil McKay) and developed a friendship that lasted over 85 years. They continued to keep in touch over the years. I remember each summer the Elliot's, or the McKay's or the McCombs would host each family over a weekend. There was always lots of funny stories shared and many laughs had. Mac and my dad continued to check in and chat with one and another right up until Mac's passing. This is a friendship that my father treasured and will miss deeply. A friendship that most of us never get to experience. We send you our love and support during this sad and difficult time. We hope that the memories you have of Mac give you strength and bring you comfort. Herb, Pat & Mark McComb Melanie, Lyndsay, Cassie & Owen Hunter
From: John Dickson
Sad coincidence that we were just chatting about Mac last Tuesday, sharing stories, and fond memories. I only met Mac once, but we had a lovely and memorable conversation, mostly about mutual acquaintances. Sincere condolences to all of Mac's family and friends.
From: Terri Crewson
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad /Grandpa. I have many fond memories of him. Sending heartfelt condolences to all of you as you grieve. Love, Terri
From: Heather McKay
What wonderful memories camping and great dinners with the Elliot family. My Dad, Wil McKay grew up with Mac and mentioned often Mac was smart as a whip in school but you would never hear him boasting . Mac was always interested in others and what you were up to. There will be a great celebration in heaven with your dear Edith, Marg and Grant, and all your loved ones that have passed. A life well lived!
From: Joyce Downey
My sincere sympathy to Macs family. He was such a nice gentleman
From: Bonnie Reid Mandly
Sean and I visited with Uncle Mac only last month. He enjoyed with relish our treat of maple walnut ice cream and shared photos and memories with us from 70+ years ago. He was such a kind, gentle, caring man and his presence in our lives will be missed greatly. He has moved onto that great square dance in the sky...
