We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Ricky Lee Elliott, age 48, of New Tazewell, TN.  He was born on January 21, 1975, and passed away on October 1, 2023.

Ricky or J.R. or even Junior to some, lived a full life, which those who loved him got to experience through his wonderful storytelling.  He was the best friend to everyone he knew, and he never met a stranger.  We offer our condolences to everyone who had the opportunity to know him.
