E. Robert Elliott, former president and chief executive officer of an Owings Mills embroidery firm, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease Monday at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. He was 83.

Mr. Elliott was born and raised in Highlandtown. He was a 1940 graduate of City College, and later from the Baltimore College of Commerce. During World War II, he enlisted in the Air Force and had finished boot camp when the war ended, said a daughter, Pamela B. Elliott of Huntsville, Utah.

Mr. Elliott was the office manager for Koppers Co. in Baltimore before joining Lion Brothers Co. Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of embroidered cloth patches, in 1963. He retired in 1988.

He enjoyed playing bridge, tennis and golf, and had been a member of Hunt Valley Golf Club. As a younger man, he liked riding his horse, Lucky, around Loch Raven Reservoir.

The longtime Timonium resident was a communicant of Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Roman Catholic Church.

Services are private.

Elliott of Phoenix, Baltimore County; another daughter, Laurie Gill of Baltimore; a brother, James Elliott of Forest Hill; and seven grandchildren. Another daughter, Kathryn M. "Trina" Elliott, died in 1997.
