Obituary for David Ray Elliott

David Ray Elliott, 62, passed away unexpectedly on February 15, 2020. He was born July 27, 1957 to Opal and Ray Elliott.

He graduated from Billings Senior High School in 1975 and married Tamera Stuart (Parkins). They had three children together.

He enjoyed fishing and was a lifelong hunter in the Big Hole Valley. Those around him could gauge the season by the length and scruff of his beard. In addition to his love of the outdoors, David had many other interests ranging from playing darts to collecting vintage sewing machines to racing cars. When working on his racecars he would say, “It ain’t fast enough!” In September of 2011, he won the Yellowstone Drag Racing Wally Award.

On July 4th, 2015, David married Judy Day of Roundup. They bought land to build their own home. David had several lifetimes worth of knowledge gathered over the years that culminated with the near completion of their home. He and Judy tirelessly worked through every obstacle together.

David believed in working hard and showed a high level of craftsmanship in everything that he engineered, built, modified and maintained. Even his 4th grade teacher saw it when she wrote, “He has a wholesome attitude towards his work, and works and plays wholeheartedly.”

David was preceded in death by his parents Ray and Opal Elliott, an infant brother, and his sister Sheila. He is survived by his wife Judy; two daughters Patricia (Steve) and Jessica (Jesse) and son Dennis (Alexis). He also had four stepchildren Anne (Rich), Grace (Larry), JD and Elmer (Irma); ten grandchildren; and two sisters Joanne (Harold) Gilliam and JeanAnn (Stewart) Ankrum and their families.

Services will be held at Wier Funeral Home at 208 1st Street West in Roundup, MT on February 22nd, 2020 at 11:00am.
