Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor,

While in Montana I learned that Sheriff Elliott had passed. From the Saturday door campaign to a deputy’s funeral to several meetings in his office, I got to admire his humility and wit. Thom Elliott was a warm, kind listener. He could be tough with a knack for tongue-in-cheek expression, yet matter of fact intent of which to had better heed! In 2020 he told me my conceal carry permit would be approved if I wasn’t an habitual drunkard. I think he liked my training. I recall the head on truck passing another near Paoli; he told me I should’ve given him the finger — there was no time for that as I swerved into the shoulder! Cordial, cheerful and respectful was our late Sheriff.

Chris Daley, CSOC
