ELDORADO -- Elliott Lee Hosack, 58, of El Dorado passed away Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2009, at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
He was born on Aug. 16, 1950, in Chanute to Robert E. and Welthalee (Lasater) Hosack. Elliott had valiantly waged a lifetime battle with cerebral palsy. He had resided at the Creative Community Living's group home in El Dorado since 1997.
He enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, greeting people at the front door, and playing catch with the staff at CCL. He enjoyed having the nicknames "Elli" and "Old Man."
He is survived by a brother, Robert Hosack of Chanute; a nephew, Bobby Hosack, also of Chanute; and the CCL family that he resided with for over 11 years, especially Korina Deal, who could always make him laugh.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
