Sad news from West Prince today as we learn of the passing of Ricky Ellis - he was a carpenter, painter, restorer who repaired alot of Island Churches and buildings over the years. He and his sons and workers could often be seen hanging from church steeples, painting and repairing. Below are a few that I know about, but there are many, many more! He's gone too soon and will be greatly missed by his family, friends and those of us who appreciated his talents in helping fix-up our old Island buildings.
The death occurred suddenly at his late residence on January 29, 2017 of Richard "Ricky" Lorne Ellis, Dunblane, 62, beloved husband of Donna (nee Betts) Ellis. Born January 16, 1955 in O’Leary. Father to Carman (John McInnis), Richard (Sarah Jones), Dana (Priscilla) & Kurtis (Joanne). Loving grandfather to Caitlin (Skylar Hustler), Taylor, Hunter Ellis, Mia, Cooper Ellis, Kennedy, Finnley and Isla Ellis. Great grandfather to Abbie, Ali & Lydia.
