Elliott, Anson Wright August 9, 1935 - March 30, 2018

Anson Wright Elliott – March 30, 2018. Born August 9, 1935 in New Orleans, Wright graduated from Princeton University (‘57), earned Masters Degrees from LSU and Cornell, and served honorably as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps. Wright was married to the love of his life Jane Rader for almost 43 years. Together, they raised 3 sons and loved to travel, entertain, golf and enjoy good food and wine. They settled in Bronxville, New York, where Wright served on the Reformed Church Consistory and Bronxville School Board of Education. Wright enjoyed a distinguished 25-year career with Chase Bank, where he was an Executive Vice President. His commitment to service was evident in time spent on the Boards of Directors of the NY Botanical Garden, South Street Seaport, Union Theological Seminary, Police Athletic League, and the Counseling Center. After his retirement, Wright divided his time between Bronxville and St. Michaels, Maryland, where he discovered his love for crabbing, kayaking, and watching sunsets. Wright particularly enjoyed sharing those times with children, grandchildren, dogs and dear friends.  In 2005, Wright married Patsy Fleming and relished the time he spent with her children Liz (David) and Louisa (David), and their children Matthew, Michael, Claire, Christian, Philip Peter and William. Along with many visits from friends and family, activities such as cooking, bridge and movies filled Wright’s life with Patsy with great joy.  After Patsy’s passing, Wright was fortunate to have spent wonderful time traveling and in the company of friends with his good friend, Nancy Loiaconi. A man of grace, integrity and style, Wright is survived by his sons Michael (Karen), Steve (Daniela) and Dave (Margaret), and grandchildren, Cara (P.J.), Connor, Caitlyn, Sophie, Charlotte, Daisy, Rowan and Caroline, great-granddaughter Eloise, and dog Simon.
