David was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Danny Elliott. Left to cherish his precious memory are his wife, Kathy Elliott; daughter, Dana Kay Woolard; grandchildren, Austin, Kymbra and Dennon and four great grandchildren. David was a man of honor that was genuine and generous. He had an adventurous spirit and loved anything nature, wildlife and the great outdoors. David spoke his mind and was unapologetic about it. He was skilled in many areas, especially in architectural design and engineering. He participated in his beloved rodeo in which he held two championships in bareback riding. David was also very proud of the time he worked at Baylor College of Medicine with the CV team under Dr. Michael DeBakey. David proudly served his country in the United States Army and was a Vietnam Veteran. History was his passion and he was well versed in the American and Civil War history.
