Summerville-Elliot died on Sunday, January 25, 2015 he was predeceased by his parents Joyce A. (Keller) and Joel A. Bergen. He was born May 24, 1974 in Hopatcong, Sussex, New Jersey. His parents worked for Braniff, Continental, and United Airlines and retired to Myrtle Beach, SC in early 1999.
Elliot’s work and interest in the airlines continue throughout his life working as a ramp agent with United in New Jersey, Piedmont Airlines in Charlotte, NC and an outsourced Ramp Agent at Pittsburgh International Airport, Pennsylvania.
Elliot was a strong and diligent individual who had a strong sense of family, devotion to God and respect for all who assisted him. He fondly spoke of several co-workers at Piedmont Airlines, friends of his father who guided him and those that looked after him physically, emotionally and spiritually. When he was diagnosed with his heart ailment he stated, “I’m glad I got to come “home” to be straighten out!”
On a personal note Elliot was a kind, loving, and misunderstood young man. He was funny, and showed us all that faith does make you stronger. He will be missed by his extended family the DiMaria’s of Myrtle Beach and the Storick’s of Summerville, S.C, where he resided until he passed.
At his request, his service will be private. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Animal Friends Shelter, 562 Camp Horn Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 or Carolinas Air Museum, 4672 First Flight Drive, Charlotte NC 28208.
