More detail on this person: I was married to Elliott Cohn at the time of his death. He died on May 20, 1977 in a helicopter crash in Dallas, Texas, while flying traffic reporting for KVIL radio, leaving behind a 3-month-old baby boy, Eanen. Eanen is now grown, doing well, and living in Denton, TX. I have since re-married, but remain in contact with Elliott's family. Elliott is buried in Bluebonnet Hills cemetery in Colleyville, TX.
