“Devastating Loss: Remembering Thomas Elliot, the Louisville Shooting Victim and Beloved Vice President of Old National Bank. Learn More about His Life, Family, and Legacy.”
On Monday, the Louisville community was rocked by a mass shooting at Old National Bank that claimed the lives of four people, including Thomas Elliot. Elliot, aged 63, was a senior vice president of the bank and a respected figure in Kentucky’s business and political sphere. He had also served as the chair of Governor Andy Beshear’s inaugural committee in 2019.
Governor Beshear paid tribute to Elliot, whom he called an “incredible friend” and a source of guidance on being a good father. Elliot’s loss has deeply affected not only his family and friends but the entire community, as evidenced by the outpouring of condolences and prayers.
Elliot’s life was marked by both professional success and personal connections. He was married to Maryanne (Honeycutt) Elliot, the daughter of the late Dr. Roy Lee Honeycutt, the eighth president of the seminary, and his wife June. The couple had two daughters, Katherine and Emily Dotson. Elliot’s close relationship with his family was evident, and his wife and daughters have been left devastated by his passing.
The Louisville shooting case remains under investigation, and the motive behind the shooting is not yet clear. The shooter, identified as bank employee Connor Sturgeon, was found dead inside the bank from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. While details about Sturgeon’s background have emerged, the focus remains on remembering the victims of this tragedy, including Thomas Elliot.
In the wake of this devastating loss, we remember Thomas Elliot as a loving husband, father, and friend, a respected business leader, and a vital member of the Louisville community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and all those affected by this senseless act of violence.
