Former Teaching Pro, Radio Host Conan Elliott Passed Away at Age 72

Former long-time teaching professional and co-host of the golf radio program "Teeing it Up" passed away this week. Below is an obituary from the Marietta Times in Ohio.

On July 3rd 2018, Conan Hunter Elliott passed away at the age of 72 years surrounded by his family in Vancouver, Washington. Born in Marietta, Ohio on March 26, 1946 Conan was the son of Dale B. Elliott and M. Irene Elliott, of Vincent, Ohio. He was a 1964 graduate of Warren High School. Conan will be forever remembered by his wife of 38 years, Mary Lynn and his son Brian (Lisa), daughters Stephanie, Wendy (Mike), Missy (Chinmay), grandchildren Ryan, Haley, Shon, Jenn, Kori, Brady, Dylan, Izzy, Diviya and great grandchildren.

Conan was a beloved member of the Pacific Northwest golf community. During his 40+-year career as a golf pro he coached over 70 students to major college scholarships and had over 20 state champions. Many knew him as the co-host of the longest running radio golf show in the country, “Teeing it up with Tom Hewitt and Conan Elliott”. Conan was an avid sportsman who enjoyed watching sports of every kind, but was loyal to Ohio State Buckeye football above all. Fly fishing along the Deschutes with his buddies or his chocolate lab, Buckeye, was one of his favorite hobbies. Conan’s Celebration of Life will be at Camas Meadows Golf Course on Tuesday, July 10th at 6pm. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Children’s Cancer Association.
