Default Lost my Dad last week.

I lost my Dad a week ago and had his funeral was yesterday.
Clarence Howard Ellis was 91 years old. He was a WW2 Veteran.
He lived a full life and was grateful for ever day. He loved fishing for white bass (sand bass) as he called them, stripers and hybrids. His greatest catch was my Mom, whom he loved dearly.
He was also a fisher of men. Loved leading others to Christ. His favorite book in the Bible was Romans. He was known at the nursing home as “Mister Romans”as he continued reaching out to others.
I will miss him dearly but am comforted knowing he is with his Lord and Maker.
Bless you Dad and take Brad fishing if you haven’t already!

Sorry for your loss. Sounds like a great man. November 6 will be 31 years since I lost my dad at 67. We had lots of great hunts together and lots of memories but just left us way to soon. The sad thing I will be 67 in two weeks. Cherish the memories.

Sorry for your loss, Mr. Ellis. But knowing how I long to fish with my grandad again, I bet Brad was there to meet him with pole in hand and a secret fishing hole along some
Gold covered path. May your dad Rest In Peace.
