Cecil had the Eller Insurance Agency for 55 years and worked up until the day he got sick. He was happily married to the love of his life Kackie Sherman Eller for 59 years.  They raised two children, Lisa Katherine Stalvey and Christopher Keith Eller which he adored.

Cecil loved working and loved his family and friends.  He was vested in many businesses throughout  the years including 2001 VIP in Myrtle Beach, SC, Cagney’s Restaurant in Charleston, WV, Sun Harbor Marina in North Charleston, WV and Eller Subaru in Beckley, WV.  Cecil was kind hearted, funny, outgoing, generous and never met a stranger.  He always had a smile on his face.  Cecil will be greatly missed by so many in our community.

    Dear Kackie. What a sad day it was to learn of Cecil’s death. He was my “sweetheart” for about a day when we were in the 8th grade, and has always been my friend, as have you. All of your classmates of 59 love you. We keep you in our prayers. Always, Carrol

    What can we say about Cecil that hasn’t already been said. He was a friend and our insurance agent for 35 years. He always had a smile or a cheerful word to all he came in contact with. We tried recently to contact him about several policies we have without a response, then we knew something was dreadfully wrong. Please accept our sincere condolences and prayers during this difficult time. Charles & Cynthia Carl

    I would like to extend my deepest condolences and prayers to the family of Cecil. I met Cecil in 2017 at BB&T and he instantly became one of my favorites. Each time he would visit me, whether, it was football season or basketball season, we would have lengthy conversations about the Mountaineers. One of the biggest fans I have ever met. I’m truly sorry to hear of his passing and he will be missed by us. Sincerely, Greg Saunders

    I am so incredibly sorry to hear of Cecil’s passing. I pray that the pain you are experiencing now will, with time, be replaced by all the good memories of this wonderful person. Cecil and I got to be good friends at Nautilus in Kanawha City. Our schedules aligned, and we sat in the sauna together and talked for 30 minutes nearly every day. I came to look forward to these discussions, and consider Cecil to be a good friend. His deep love for his wife and family was always evident.

    Mrs. Eller, family and brother Bernie,
    We were shocked and saddened when we read about Cecil’s passing.
    Many, many people share this loss with you and hold you in their hearts at this most difficult time. Charley recently saw Cecil at a stop light on Greenbrier Street. They acknowledged each other with a friendly hand wave, Little did he know that this would be his farewell to his friend of many years. Cecil was a warm, kind and friendly person. He was genuine. We loved seeing him and Bernie at Tudor’s joking with his may friends. We will miss that exchange. We know that your hearts are broken and that the loss is unmeasurable but so is the love that he left behind with each of you. Prayers for comfort and peace.
    Charley and Priscilla Walkup . .

    I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it to Cecil’s service. My heart goes out to Kackie and the rest of the family. May God give you peace and comfort. You have a lifetime of memories, and faith that you will see one another again. Big hugs to the entire Eller family!
