Charles W. (Chuck) Elliott was born on January 7, 1932 in Tampico, Illinois. The oldest of four boys, his family moved around the Chicago area and eventually moved to Belvidere where he met his first wife, Donna. They were married on September 7, 1952 and enjoyed 45 years together until Donna passed away on September 22, 1997. Chuck and Donna are survived by two children Tim (Theresa) and Christine, and four grandchildren – Amanda, Emily, Bobby and Katie. Chuck was fortunate and married Tucky, his second wife, in February, 1999. They enjoyed 18 years together before her death on August 19, 2017. Chuck was very close to Tucky's four kids and their spouses – Dave (Maribeth), Liz, Bill (Mary) and Carol (Lance.) He also was blessed with eight additional grandchildren – Graham, Jackson, Shannon, Grant, Addison, Abigail, Caroline and Cassidy. Chuck is also survived by his youngest brother, Jim (Adel) and 11 nieces and nephews. His brothers Dick (Nancy) and George (Lynn / Carole) preceded him in death. Chuck graduated from the University of Illinois in 1954 and worked for only two companies in his professional career. He enjoyed over 30 years at Price Waterhouse (PW) where he held leadership positions as a Tax partner in Chicago, South Bend, Detroit and eventually back to Chicago. Chuck retired from PW in 1987 and became the Chief Financial Officer at Kellogg Company in Battle Creek, Michigan. He and Donna moved to Kalamazoo and were very active in the local community. Chuck served on many corporate boards and non-profit boards in the Kalamazoo community. He also held a business advisory role at Western Michigan University and even served as the Interim Athletic Director for a short time. He and Donna actively supported the School of Fine Arts at Western. He and Tucky also were very active in the Kalamazoo community. Chuck was an exceptional human being who helped develop dozens of leaders at Price Waterhouse over the years and impacted many others through his charitable endeavors. He was humble, generous, athletic, a voracious reader and an articulate individual who loved to debate and ponder life's mysteries. He had been on dialysis for four years and always said that if his quality of life fell to an unacceptable level he would stop. In the end, Chuck made the final decision and was at peace. He will be greatly missed by all. Chuck's wish is to have donations sent to Loaves & Fishes, 901 Portage Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49001.
