Bob ElliottBob Elliott (January 6, 1934-December 7, 2010)
Robert Charles Elliott also known as "Elliott The Great" died at the age of 76. Bob was a great close-up magician who loved to perform for anyone who was within a few feet of him. But he will be remembered as a very generous man who spent all of his life teaching and showing magic to young magicians and getting them inspired in the art. Countless magic careers were started by Bob and thousands of magicians have benefited from his friendship and hospitality. Condolences go to his wife Diane "Happy" Elliott and his children Jennifer and John. (12/7/10: A MagicTimes photo).
