An amazing guy.
I still think about him. The last time I saw him still haunts me.

I lived a block away from Elliot in Bradley Beach we walked to grade school together everyday.
He was something, even back then you knew he was a cut above everyone else.
I can't recall seeing him in high school. I heard he went to Princeton but that is my last recollection of him. He had 2 brothers that were also quite gifted.
Eliot lived a few blocks away from me in Bradley Beach. We spent alot of time building rockets out of aluminum tubing and saltpeter rocket fuel in my yard and then building shortwave radios. I think about Eliot alot and still miss him.
Elliot was always the smartest kid in the class. His knowledge was encyclopedic. When I first met him in class, I thought," Wow, this kid is a genius", and he was. He was a great guy.
