John Ellis Obituary

John David Nice Ellis of Warrington, PA, passed away on December 2, 2023. He was 93 years old. John was the beloved husband of the late Helen Ellis, with whom he had shared over 57 years of marriage. He was born in Philadelphia, PA, and raised in Haverford PA.

John’s faith and family were paramount in his life. John was an avid reader, always curious and researching. He found joy in reading the Bible, and had read through it countless times during his life. John loved to fish, especially off the piers of Ocean City, NJ, where he and Helen shared a dream home. He was a fan of Irish music, and Ray Charles. John found a love for golf at the ripe age of 75 years, and enjoyed family golf outings with Helen and all of their friends.

John was a U.S. Marine Veteran and a member of V.F.W. Post 6493 in Warminster. He enjoyed attending his children's and grandchildren's athletic and performance events. John had a love for dogs and he rescued many over the years. Although he may have been known as a quiet man, the words John spoke were deeply meaningful and memorable.

John is survived by his loving children; John Ellis (Tina), Maureen Doscher (John), Ken Ellis (Nancy), Robert Ellis (Melissa), Bernadette Ellis, Brian Ellis (Colleen), Raun Gifford (Tom), Joe Ellis, Danny Ellis (Maureen), Michael Ellis (Colleen), Patrick Ellis (Portia), and Jimmy Ellis. 31 grandchildren Colleen (Justin), John (Kristine), Brad (Julie), Amy (Mike), Meggie (Matt), Kate (Andy), Kelly (AJ), Connor (Joslyn), Christopher, Lauren, Amanda (Chris), Brittany (Matt), Ryan, Lisa (Jarrett), Danielle (Timmy), Zachariah (Amanda), Rachel (Alex), Courtney (Christian), Jacob (Anna), Mike (Megan), Danielle (Mike), Molly (Vincent), Erin, Jack, Dan, Kieran, Aidan, Shannah, Ian, Cole, Gabriella and 25 great grandchildren who brought joy to his life.
