Born on March 27, 1953 at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, he was a proud graduate of the University of Richmond, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree.

He made lifelong friends at the U of R; but the one he stayed closest to was, his roommate Jim Cornetta of Norfolk.

Both of them added more friends after college; they called themselves the “Night Owls” and continued to have regular social get together’s until this day.

Ellis loved life and he found special joy in hunting, the beach, fishing in Florida, antiquing, yard work, and he attended Calvary Baptist Church, Lynchburg.

He is survived by his daughter Lyndsay George of Richmond.

Also surviving are mother-in-law Patsy Joy, stepdaughter Christy Schmitt and husband Brandon, step grandchildren Taylor Crane, Thomas and Charlotte Schmitt, step great granddaughter Destiny Jones, sister Suzie Godsey of Tennessee, brother Lester and his wife Pat George of Richmond.

In light of the restrictions due to the Coronavirus, the family will have a private graveside service.
