Ellis and I have been friends for 70 years. We spoke on a weekly basis since we moved to Florida in 2006. We spoke every Saturday and I talked to him this  past Saturday at 9am and his son called me later in the day to tell me of his passing. Rest In Peace my friend. Marty Kramer

Such a loss.  As with many others, Ellis checked in on me periodically. He was a kind, thoughtful, caring man.

How lucky I was to spend time with Ellis in July.  what a loss.  We appreciate people more as we get older.  and I certainly appreciated the kind, positive person I saw in the summer.  And he even treated us to an abbot's custard.  A very sad loss.

I will always remember Ellis for his kindness and generosity.

I don't know when we first met, but growing up we lived around the corner from each other, went to grammer school and high school together, and have stayed in contact since.

After I learned of his death, I thought about our times together. Russ Lidman, Martin Senzel, Ellis, and I used to sit on my parents' porch playing monopoly or go to Russ' house and play badminton when we were young..  He was an usher at my  wedding. When my mother died he was there to help. When he would go to the cemetery in Rochester for his own purposes, unasked, he would always visit and tend my parents' graves, even doing so recently when he was growing weaker. I was always flattered that he would call me for medical advice over the years. It is strange that I also remembered that he once found a publication of some poems I wrote in high school and went out of his way to mail these to me.

I grieve for our loss. He was a rare individual. I also grieve for the loss of someone who could corroborate memories of our shared pasts.

Rest in peace, old friend.

So sorry to learn of Ellis passing last time I saw him was at the 50th reunion.  He joined my husband and I for the breakfast the day after.  We really enjoyed his company and said if he ever came to Arizona he would like to visit us.  Prayers for Ellis's family and close friends.

Ellis and met in First grade which is over 70 years ago and have been friends ever since. Throughout the years we always kept in touch on our birthdays and holidays. I have lived in Arizona for the past 20 years. When we took trips to Rochester we always got together. We spoke on phone two weeks ago. Ellis was a really great guy and will be missed by everyone that knew him. RIP.

Having known Ellis since grammar school and living a few houses away on the same street for many years, I was so saddened to hear of his passing.  He was one of a kind.  He was also always willing to do anything at any time for you.  He was a tremendous help to Paula while I was in the hospital for heart surgery.  I spoke to him late Saturday and was going to take him to his appointment on Monday. He will live on in our hearts and minds.  I will deeply miss his laugh and talking to him every other day.
