Edwin F. Ellis

Edwin F. Ellis, 89, of Marathon, NY, passed away on Friday, January 28, 2022, at the Guthrie Cortland Regional Medical Center, Cortland, NY.

Born in Greene, NY, on April 17, 1932, Mr. Ellis was the son of the late Erford and Pearl Carson Ellis.  He proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired from Grumman Boat, Marathon, after 39 years of dedicated service.  In his spare time, he enjoyed woodworking and tinkering in his barn.  Most of all, he loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his children, Michael Ellis, of Marathon, David Ellis of Cortland, and Michele (Stephen) Shearer of McGraw.  He also leaves behind seven grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Alice Hartman Ellis, in 2011; a son, Larry Ellis; and several brothers and sisters. 

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no services.

I am so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I can actually visualize Alice's big smile when they were reunited. I know you're happy they are together, but I also know what a big hole he left in your hearts. You're all in my thoughts and prayers. May loving memories sustain you.
