Robert “Bob” Elliot ’69 of Moon, Va., died on January 30, 2010. Born in 1946, Bob graduated from Mines with a degree in geophysical engineering. Bob completed naval officer training in Pensacola, Fla., and served as a naval aviator for 21 years. After retiring from the Navy as a lieutenant commander, Bob resided in Stafford, Va., with his family while working as a senior engineer for 17 years in Navy contracting. An avid pilot, Bob continued to fly after his days in the Navy. He flew to work and back in his private plane and took occasional jaunts to visit friends. His love of the water brought him to Stutts Creek in Moon, Va., in April 2006, where he enjoyed sailing, windsurfing and just appreciating the beauty of the bay. Bob is survived by his wife of 30 years, Debbie; sons, Chris, Matt and Ryan; brother, Bill; sister, Pam; and one grandson.
