Thomas Keith Ellis, 46
Dec. 21, 1967 -- Nov. 27, 2014

Thomas Keith Ellis passed unexpectedly on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2014, in Hartford at the age of 46.

Thomas was born on Dec. 21, 1967, at St. Michael’s hospital in Milwaukee to parents Patricia (nee Clune) and Lawrence Ellis. He grew up in Allenton and fondly reflected on his childhood and growing up on his family’s land.

After attending West Bend West High School he became an accomplished welder at Maysteel in Allenton where he worked for 20 years.

He was the proudest father of his daughter, Morgan Ellis, who remembers him as being an incredibly kind, larger than life man who was always supportive and loving throughout his time with us.

Thomas enjoyed everything that life had to offer. He was never a man who could be pinned down. Thomas lived an exciting life, always thrill seeking. Whether through motor sports or various other escapades, he wasn’t afraid to live life to the fullest.

Thomas had an unbeatable sense of humor and told hilarious stories which would have everyone doubled over in a fit of laughter. He was a genuinely caring man who fiercely loved his family and friends, just not the cat.

Thomas is survived by his mother Patricia Ellis and father Lawrence Ellis; younger brothers Timothy and Steven; and daughter Morgan “Morgy Borgy;” along with multitudes of close friends. He is preceded in death by his brother Randall.

The family would like to thank everyone for their support and sympathy during this time. Private services will be held.
