He was the son of Samuel C. Elliott and Juanita Marie Banning. He was the youngest of six children. Dan and his first wife, Sheryl, had a daughter, Angyl Elliott Moneymaker, and a son, Dylan Craig Elliott. Dan married Neoma J. Petersen in 1993 and they operated Pete’s Place convenience store near Sooner Lake until 2007, when they retired and moved to Perry.

Dan went to Pawnee Schools and owned Elliott Electrical Service Company in Pawnee, Oklahoma. He earned his electrical license and his mechanical license. Dan worked in dirt construction, operating many construction machines, his favorite was the bulldozer, and helped to build Highway 412 and numerous flood control dams. He also worked as a driller in the oil fields. Throughout his life, he enjoyed fishing and camping, riding dirt bikes, motorcycles and 3 wheelers (anything fast) cooking, smoking meat and most importantly reading the Bible. During retirement, Dan enjoyed researching on the computer and sharing with others about his interest in Bigfoot – he always had great fun facts to share with family and friends. In the last two years, Dan was devoted to caring for and nursing his wife, Neoma, back to health following a broken leg and two surgeries.

May he fly high in Heaven with his daughter Angyl watching over us until we meet again.
