John Patrick Ellis wasn't just a man, he was a son, a brother, a husband, a father and a uncle. All who knew and loved him will always remember his smile and his talent on many musical instruments. He lived life to the fullest ... not only did he live it, he loved it. Even knowing his time in the Marine Corps may one day cost him his life. When that time came he lost his life defending the country he loved. He left behind a very saddened family but now we still remember him and love him after all these years. He is gone but never will he be forgotten. Recently, on July 25, 2002, we lost his brother who is my father - Mr. Martin Luther Ellis. Until the day he died he always remembered and loved his brother as if he were still here. So in loving memory of Captain John Patrick Ellis and Martin Luther Ellis ... we will always hold them close to our hearts and memories.
Love to the both of them.
Placed by his niece,
Daddy, I love you, and I miss you.
