MADISON -

Elliot N. Iver, age 58, died peacefully, at sunset, on April 25, 2013, at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, WI, surrounded by his loved ones.

Elliot was born in Yonkers, NY, and graduated from Scarsdale High School.
He attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and MATC, pursuing fine art painting, and landscape and architectural design.

His intellect, quick wit, and his passion for creating paintings and drawings, and playing music on the guitar and harp were all reflections of his quest for beauty and light tempered by his tender and compassionate heart. He loved animals and always had a pet by his side.

Elliot is survived by his loving and devoted partner of 22 years, Kazu Kitano; his brother, Michael (Cindy) Iver; his nephew, Jeremy; niece, Katelyn; his sister, Lorraine, and a close circle of long-time friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Kate and Morton Iver, and his grandparents.

A funeral will be held in the Jewish tradition on Sunday, April 28, beginning at noon, at the CRESS FUNERAL HOME, 3610 Speedway Rd., Madison. Burial will be immediately afterward at Sunset Memory Gardens on Mineral Point Rd. in Madison.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Dane Co. Humane Society.

The family and friends wish to offer our most heartfelt thanks to Brooke and Patrick, and all the staff at St. Mary's MICU for their respectful and compassionate care of Elliot and those closest to him.
