Elliott was born June 22, 1956, in Orangeburg to the late William Elliott Cuttino Jr. and the late Luna Jarvis Cuttino. He will be remembered as a gentle soul who deeply loved his family. He enjoyed being outdoors and spending time working in his shop. He attended Orangeburg public schools. After high school, he attended The Citadel, Montreat Anderson College, and the University of South Carolina. He was a dedicated employee of Cox Industries for over 30 years, where he worked in the sales department and most recently as the receiving manager. Elliott lived most of his life in Orangeburg, except for the time spent away at college. Always the Boy Scout, he was always prepared. He was generous with his time and skills, helping friends and families with their automobile, plumbing, electrical and woodworking. He was a true "jack of all trades," always had a project going. He was an avid outdoorsman. His favorite pastimes included spending time boating with his family on the water, chasing a little white ball around the golf course, vacationing in Currituck, North Carolina, and snow camping in the mountains of North Carolina. His appreciation for good music came from his father and he was known to always have music playing with the best quality sound equipment wherever he went.
Elliott is survived by three children, Megan Dawn Cuttino of Columbia, Ryan Elliott Cuttino of Columbia and Morgan Leigh Cuttino of Orangeburg; three sisters, Susan Cuttino Smith (Andy) of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Ruth Lindsey Cuttino of Mount Pleasant and Cathey Cuttino (Glenn Sweigart) of Savannah, Georgia; and his first cousin, whom he considered a brother, Bob Wofford of Orangeburg.
