John Mark Elkins, 62, of Baytown, passed away Friday, January 26, 2024, in Houston.

John was born December 2, 1961 in Baytown, to parents; Daniel R. Elkins, Sr. and Glenda Morgan.  He went to Lamar Elementary, Horace Mann Jr., and graduated from Sterling High School in 1980; later studying at Southwest Texas in San Marcos.  He was a title examiner at Chicago Title in Austin.  In the late 90s he moved back to Baytown and worked in Downtown Houston. Eventually he left work because his symptoms kept progressing over time and he dealt with Parkinson’s disease for at least 20 years.

John was a daring and adventurous person. As a small child he rode his bicycle up to the convenience store, but when he got there, the owner called his mother and told her that he was there. Of course, she went up there to get him and put his bike up for a long time. He played football, ran track, played All-star’s baseball, and cross-country dirt bike riding. He loved music such as classic rock and Hank Williams Jr.  John loved flying in dad’s airplane, fishing, hunting, boats, classic and fast cars, and motorcycles.

Mr. Elkins was preceded in death by his mother:  Glenda Morgan Wright.  He is survived by his daughter:  Ashley Elkins, father:  Daniel R. Elkins, Sr., brother:  Daniel R. Elkins, Jr., grandson:  Ryan Tracy Verlin, nieces and nephew:  Amanda, Trey, and Morgan, numerous other relatives, and friends.
