Elliott John "Big E" Harrington

October 28, 1976 — September 5, 2022

Elliott John “Big E” Harrington, 45, of Groves, Texas passed away on Monday, September 5, 2022 in Houston, Texas. Elliott was born on October 28, 1976 in Port Arthur, Texas to Wilbert “Jody” Harrington, Jr. and Beverly LeBlanc Harrington.

Elliott was a Port Neches Groves High School graduate of 1995. Elliott was a devoted member of Immaculate Conception/St. Peter’s Catholic Church. He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus-Groves and was a 3rd degree Knight. He was also a member of the United Steelworkers Union, PNG Youth Football Association board member and an active member of the Groves National Little League. After graduating from Lamar Institute of Technology with a degree in process technology, Elliott went to work for the Bayer Corp. before leaving to work for Valero. Elliott was a huge sports fan who loved going to the PNG football games on Friday nights. He also loved to gather friends and family at his home to cook gumbo and watch Notre Dame football, Houston Texans, Houston Astros, and other sporting events. He loved to boil crawfish, BBQ and celebrate life with family and friends at their beach cabin at Crystal Beach, TX. He will surely be missed by all who knew him.
