Dakota Ryan Elliott (Kody) passed on September 6, 2023 at the age of 21. Son of David and Karen (nee Yust) Elliott. His Angel Mom Renee Caraballo, siblings Isabella and Armando Caraballo III. Grandson of Karen and the late Louis Elliott and John Yust and Jo-Ann Sheppard Yust. Nephew of Laura Lester, Joe Lester, Susan Quade (Christopher), the late Matthew Elliott, John Yust IV, Edwin W. Yust (Carol), Eleanor Savin, Carole Sheppard, and the late Alfred and Jack Sheppard. He is also survived by his Godparents Lorianne Dolan O'Neal and Charles O'Neal, their sons Gabriel and Trent. As well as his beloved dog Gypsy Rose Lee, his Ferrets, his Kitties and Turtles, and many cousins.
Dakota was a proud Eagle Scout, from troop 147 and a vehement animal lover. The focus of his Eagle Scout project was building shelters and feeding stations for a South Philadelphia Feral Cat Colony for the Philadelphia Police Dept. Dakota never met an animal he didn't love.
Dakota was a self-taught "Handyman," spending the past 6 years performing construction at his family's future home. There wasn't anything he couldn't fix, including computers. Dakota was attending college to obtain his degree in IT. Dakota had a true enthusiasm for Halloween decorating and couldn't wait to outdo the neighbors. Going bigger and bolder each year! He really enjoyed food competitions shows and Shark Week. Dakota loved unique designer clothes, like stripes with plaids, bright neon colors, pictures of ramen noodles or cats eating ramen, and his bright neon yellow Adidas Sneakers. His family and friends are going to deeply miss his gentle nature and his thoughtful gestures.
Relatives and friends are invited to his Viewing on Wednesday at St. Monica's Church at 2422 S. 17th Street in South Philadelphia beginning at 9 AM. A Funeral Mass will follow at 11 AM. Interment will immediately follow the mass at Hillside Cemetery, Roslyn PA.
