Robert E. Ellis, age 75, went home to be with the Lord on February 28, 2019 after a brief battle with leukemia.
Born in Pasadena, Calif., Bob lived in Goodyear Heights most of his life and graduated from East High School. He was formerly an active member of Goodyear Heights United Methodist Church, and was currently a member of Cornerstone Church. Bob was a lifetime member of the Tecumseh Lodge Education Group. One of his greatest joys was being a Native American hobbyist, having achieved over 1,000 hours of beadwork. Bob especially enjoyed spending time with his family and grandkids.
Preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Dorothy, and parents, Raymond and Audrey Ellis, Bob is survived by his son, Thomas; daughter, Mindy (Tom); and grandchildren, Matthew, David, Rebecca, Adalina and Leanna.
