Born in New York, he was the only child of the late Edgar and Lillian Elliston of Harlem,NY and came to Boston in the mid to late 50’s after the service.

He is survived by his wife of 25 years and his partner of 41 years, Florence O’Brien-Elliston of Malden. He also is survived by many loving brothers and sisters in law, along with many nieces and nephews.

He worked for the MBTA for 32 years out of the Cabot Garage where he was a Bus Driver and then he retired as a Chief Inspector and was an active member of Inspectors Union.
