He served on the Peaster School Board in the early 1970s and on the Throckmorton County Hospital Board in the 1990s. He was an avid reader and armchair philosopher who also enjoyed tinkering with cars and machinery and selling and trading automobiles.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Modelle Trimble Ellis; sons, Cecil Ellis and wife, Barbara, and Mark Ellis and wife, Tacy; daughter, Adrianne Ellis Berry and husband, Eldon; five grandchildren; and two special pets.

In lieu of flowers, the family has chosen the Feeding God’s Lambs Backpack Ministries of Poolville United Methodist Church as their preferred charity.
