Obituary

Elliott Nicholas Senkevicius of Wheaton, Illinois was freed from the pain of fighting a fierce battle with leukemia. 

Beloved son of Melissa Guido and Antanas Senkevicius. Adored big brother of Collin Gabriel.

Precious grandson of Gammer, Lin Guido. Cherished nephew of Christie (Josh) Stumpenhorst, Greg (Amy) Guido, AJ Guido, Godparents Nick (Kristin) Guido. Adored cousin of Tanner, Kaleb, Bennett, Sebastian, Clara, and Siena. 

Cherished grandson of Romas and Irena Senkevicius. Loved nephew of Robertas Senkevicius. 

Treasured Child of God and friend to all. Elliott sought adventure and exploration of all kinds. He loved playgrounds, construction, trains, cooking, dance, swimming, community events, museums, The Popcorn Shop, and so much more. He was a ferocious reader with a strong will and unparalleled love for others. Elliott had a contagious smile. Anyone who met Elliott was moved by his joy and spark and will forever be impacted by his life. Elliott truly was The Greatest Showman. God Bless this sweet boy. 

 

We will be celebrating Elliott in his favorite way - a party! - full of his favorite snacks, toys, and games during this family-friendly visitation.

  • Parking is available in the lot just north of the church as well as on the street. Please pull forward if you are in a double parking spot.
  • Street parking is available and the 1-hour limit will not be enforced.
  • Please consider carpooling if possible as we know how loved Elliott is and want to make room for everyone. 
  • Uber or Lyft is a great option.
  • The Glen Ellyn train station is about 3 blocks from the church.
  • Overflow seating will be available in the lobby and the service will be streamed on the TV in that area. 
  • We ask that you consider wearing a mask during the seated service on Saturday. 

Viewing of the Celebration of Life can be livestreamed starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 8th at the following link: https://youtube.com/channel/UCimg6DFT4Re9yJSOVVuoFeQ

In lieu of flowers, please consider leaving a donation to plant a tree and place a plaque in honor of Elliott. Envelopes will be available at both events. 

We intend to place the tree at Lincoln Marsh play area, one of his favorite places to explore and play.  Any additional funds will be directed to the Sensory Garden Playground Mission, another one of Elliott's favorite playgrounds and an endeavor in the works by the Wheaton Park District. We ask for donations to go directly to Elliott's fund via the visitation or service.

 

Elliott was loved by so many, especially his friends. For those of you who will be bringing his buddies of all ages, please know that Elliott will not be present at either celebration.
