Elliot Samuel Disraeli Bergen   24 May 1974 – 25 January 2015

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.

  • Kevin says:

    Elliot was a different type of guy, very much misunderstood, but a hell of a hard worker, who loved every second of his job! Losing him equals a loss to the aviation community in general, and is especially painful to those of us who pierced through his tough exterior and saw him for the gentle soul he was.

  • Keith Richardson says:

    This was the hardest working guy at US Air and he was always ready to work, if you worked in his unit he was going to carry the load and make sure the job was done, sorry to hear he has passed.

  • KG says:

    I worked with Elliot for about 6 years. He was a very hard worker. You could tell that he had been hurt in the past and he would build up walls and try to keep from getting hurt again by pushing people away. As I got to know him more I saw a man with a sense of humor and a good heart. He was a good man and he will be missed. My prayers to his family and friends.

  • SRR says:

    I had the opportunity to work with Eliot on many occasions. He was a brillant historian, who showed me his hard dedicated work on the events leading to the eruption of Krakatoa….I was blessed to have been touched in such a personal way by him. He will be missed and remembered by our Piedmont family in Charlotte

  • Molly says:

    Dear Elliot,
    Tonight is really hard, you left us a week ago just now. You were a wonderful son, hard worker, faithful and a fighter to the end. I am so glad that God saw you and you saw God before you left this world. Seeing you never give up, try your best in the face of adversity and learn to love others makes me proud to call you my son. I miss you son.
