|Wayne Elliott, 80|
Born on March 29, 1932 in Pendleton County, to the late Ernest Elliott and the late Jesse Cookendorfer Elliott Richie, he retired from the Sysco Company in Cincinnati and was a member of the Hardin- Browning Post #109. Boozie, as known to his friends, was an avid pool player and a U.S. Navy veteran of the Korean War where he served as a gunner and spoke of his around the world trip on the USS Owen.
