Darrel Kenneth ‘Kenny’ Elliot was born on July 30, 1944 and passed away at his home on the morning of September 19, 2018 of a heart attack.  He was born in Hanford, California to William and Cora Elliott, he was the third of five children.  The family moved to Humboldt County when he was six years old. 

Kenny attended Fortuna high school and quickly became a well-loved member of the town.  He eventually settled down to raise a family in Hydesville, CA where he married his wife of 42 years, Beatrice Marlene Elliott. For over 20 years they owned and operated the Loleta service station where he was able to do what he loved, helping others and working on all sorts of cars. 

Kenny was always hustling and never liked sitting still, he loved bowling, westerns, fixing up classic cars, going to storage unit auctions and having big rummage sales where he got to talk to all sorts of people. 

Kenny was a wonderful, kind, funny and generous man, father and husband who will be missed dearly.  He is survived by his loving wife Marlene, his 4 siblings Katherine, Floyd, Corrine and Sandy, his children, Danny, Suzie and Willie and his 4 grandchildren, Connor, Paige, Ethan & Dorothy. 

No service will be held at this time, in lieu of flowers we ask for donations to be made to the Sequoia Humane Society in Eureka.
