Elie Doby Jr., age 61, of Little Canada, formerly of Yazoo City, MS, gained his angel wings on
November 10, 2021, surrounded by family.
Survived by his mother, Rosie May; lifelong partner, Cindy Kirk; children, Tamarah, Rosieanna
(Tiffany), Elizabeth (Gerardo), Miranda, Amanda (Derek), Carmella, Elie III, and Zahara; 12
grandchildren; along with many relatives and friends.
He is welcomed by those who preceded him in death; his father, Elie Sr.; wife, Tricia; and son, Elie II.
Elie grew up in Mississippi and brought his family to the Twin Cities in search of better opportunities for
them. He was a jack of all trades and an entrepreneur - starting his landscaping company, “Elie Does It”
and employing multiple family members. His passions included poker, working on cars, and thrifting.
Elie’s family could count on him to provide laughter, oil changes, and to share his thrifting treasures with
them. He had the biggest heart and will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 12PM, on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, at Bradshaw (488
Humboldt). Family and friends may visit one hour prior. Flowers and memorials preferred to family.
