Deno Roderick Elliott

December 29, 1958 ~ September 5, 2023 (age 64) 64 Years Old


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: 
he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake. 
                                                              Psalm 23:1-3

Deno Roderick Elliott was born on December 29, 1958, to the late Thelma L. and Freddie C. Elliott of Toano, Virginia. On Tuesday, September 5, 2023, Deno entered into eternal rest in Mary Immaculate Hospital, Newport News. 

At an early age, Deno confessed Christ as his Personal Savior; later in life as an adult, he rededicated his life and joined Mt. Nebo Baptist Church. He was a dedicated employee and recent retiree of ABC Professional Tree Service, where he worked for many years.

If you knew Deno, you know that he was the life of the party. He was known to some as "Love," "Lovey-Cat," or "Bravo." If the weather was right, you could find him doing what he loved, fishing on the Parkway or Gloucester Pier. His favorite football team was the Washington Commanders (aka Skins). He always had a wise joke of some sort and greeted most with an expressive (hands and all) "What's happening."  Deno touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed. May we remember his conversations and mannerisms that brought smiles and laughter to each of us. 

He was preceded in death by his son, Dexter Jones and sister, Selma Elliott. Left to cherish his memories are his former wife, Brenda Smith (Randy); son, Terry D. Elliott (Stephanie); daughter, Teira D. Williams (Herbert); five grandchildren. Alexis, Isaiah, Javon, Olivia, and Michael; two sisters, Elnita Johnson (Merriman) and Zelda Boyd (Ashley); brother, Freddie D. Elliott; nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends who he loved and cared for. 

A memorial service will be held at 12:00 p.m. Thursday, September 14, 2023, in Whiting's Funeral Home. Inurnment to follow in Williamsburg Memorial Park.
