In loving memory of William “Bill” Ellis who passed away at Health Sciences North in Sudbury on Tuesday, December 6th, 2016 at the age of 86 years. Beloved husband of Myrna Ellis (nee Meyers) of Dowling. Loving father of John Ellis (wife Laurie-Anne) of Ottawa. Cherished grandfather of Matthew and William Ellis. Dear brother of the late Oliver Ellis (surviving wife Florence of Roblin, Manitoba) and Lorna Hector (husband Jim) of Ottawa. Bill was born in Arcola, Saskatchewan on May 21st 1930, son of Hazel and Ivan Ellis (both predeceased). He later farmed at Shortdale, Manitoba. Bill moved to Sudbury in 1951 and worked for INCO for 42 years, retiring in 1993. In his healthier years, some of his favourite pastimes were hunting, fishing and gardening. He led a simple life and was always willing to help anyone in need. Bill will be remembered as a kind hearted individual who constantly put others first. Spending time with his family, especially with his grandsons, always brought great joy to his life. As per his wishes, there will be no visitation. Cremation at Lakeview Crematorium. A graveside committal service will take place at a later date. In Bill’s memory, donations to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) would be greatly appreciated by the family. Arrangements in care of Simple Wishes of the North. (705) 470-7070
