Friends and family said goodbye today to a Machesney Park ice cream shop owner who passed away.
A funeral was held Friday morning at Riverside Community Church for John Elliott. The former owner of Dairy Depot died last week.
The Harlem High School graduate served in the Air Foce and worked at Woodward for nearly 40 years.
Shortly after, Elliott bought the Dairy Depot in Loves Park and served ice cream for the last 18 years.
The business will be passed on to Brittany Artz, a Dairy Depot employee who has been at the store for the past 13 years.
