Robert Bowman Elliott, III

Robert Bowman Elliott, III of Berwick, Pennsylvania, left our family on November 30, 2022, for his last
He was born on January 8, 1956, in Pittston, PA. He was the beloved son of the late Robert Bowman
Elliott of Shickshinny Valley and Marie Cerulli Elliott Steinruck of Berwick. He graduated from Northwest
High School in Shickshinny, PA. He later attended Luzerne County Community College’s electronics
program. Robert was employed in the security field, having worked as an officer at casinos in Las Vegas
and law enforcement in Louisiana. He worked in Special Investigations in New Orleans and was then
promoted to Assistant Warden at the Sherriff’s Office in St. Bernard’s Parish in Louisiana. He retired in
Pennsylvania and sought a quieter lifestyle close to nature.
Robert was well-traveled, having lived in New Orleans, LA, Las Vegas, NV, Los Angeles, CA, and several
parts of Alaska. He loved to read books, watch educational tv, and tinker in electronics and technology.
He was gifted at carpentry, playing the guitar, and singing since starting a band in high school. He
connected with nature and animals in a very special way, bringing him much joy and happiness. He was
humble and kind, and reliable.
He is survived by his son, Robert Bowman Elliott IV of Berwick. Robert was part of a large family of three

and Patricia Grevera, Hanover Township, PA; and three brothers, Ernest Elliott and his fiancé Mary

advice and guidance. We miss him dearly and will cherish our memories of him.
