Elias Gregory Marmon or as he would’ve like to be called, Elias Robert Marmon, some knew him as Eli, passed away on July 11, 2021, surrounded by his loved ones in Billings, Montana. Elias was born on April 12, 1988, in Missoula, Montana.
He grew up in Ronan with his parents and sister until eight years later when his little brother Dalton was born. Clarissa and Elias enjoyed their baby brother either spoiling him or torturing him.
Elias met the mother of his children Jaylyn in 2005. In 2006 they welcomed their first-born son Zainen. Fifteen months later they welcomed their second son Traiten in 2008.
On September 10, 2013, our lives changed forever! Elias was in a work accident that left him paralyzed. He spent six months in rehab / recovery with his parents by his side. Elias came home to Ronan with his parents in March 2014 where he lived for a year. He then moved to Billings in 2015 to be with Rebecca and her daughter Ella.
Elias spent most of his adult life in Missoula and Billings. No matter where he was, he made friends and was always there for his friends and family. He enjoyed watching his cousin Koltin do motocross and also enjoyed watching Cowboys football (win or lose).
Elias loved his music as loud as he could possibly get it, and his side by side the same. He spent a lot of time riding around in his truck with friends and family listening to music and cruising back roads while complaining about every bump you hit. He always had a smile on his face and loved making you laugh whether he stood towering over you at six foot four or rolling past you at four foot six. He was a giving soul and had a heart of gold. He was a friend to all he met, and he will be truly missed.
Until we meet again Elias. We love you and you are with us every day of our lives.
Elias was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, his childhood dog Lucky and beloved dog Tippy.
He is survived by his boys Zainen and Traiten (their mother Jaylyn); his parents Dave and Cathy, sister Clarissa (John) and family; brother Dalton (Connor) and family; his sister Nichele as well as his grandparents Louis Polinsky and Judy Abernathy, Mike and Jo Marmon, aunts, uncles, and cousins who he loved.
A Celebration of Life for Elias will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021 at 4:30 pm at Leon Hall Clubhouse in Charlo.
