Obituary of Leonard “Buddy” Ellis

Please share a memory of Leonard to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Leonard Lewis “Buddy” Ellis Jr., 79 of Greenville joined his wife, when he went to meet the master in his heavenly home, on Saturday, May 8th 2021 leaving from Logan Regional Medical Center, after a long courageous battle with Lung Cancer. He was born, in his mothers bed, on April 8, 1942, in Greenville, a son of the late Leonard and Vicie Ellis. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, who was the love of his life, Patricia Sue Ellis, Daughter Doreen Ann Donahue, Brother Thurman Ellis and Sister Anna Jean Porter. Buddy graduated high school in 1960 and soon after married the love of his life, Patricia. He worked as a coal miner for 25 years for Amherst Coal Company. He was also a proud member of the Man High School Athletic Hall of Fame. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, boating and gardening. Devoted to his family and neighbors, he especially loved helping those in need. He had a brilliant mind and was a hard worker. Buddy lived his life with lessons taught to him from his mother, although he probably never knew it when he was younger God was always guiding him. “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18 Those left to cherish his memory are his three Children, Daughter Teresa Ellis of Durham, NC, Son Leonard “Louie” Ellis III of Man, Son Christopher (Annette) Ellis of Man, five Sisters Mary Adkins, Linda Bailey,and Yvonne Sutton all of Cleveland OH, Pauline (Hibbert) Lester of Davin, Brother Paul (Judy) Ellis of Glen Daniel and Sister Naomi (Johnny) Hatfield of Davin. Grandchildren Brandon (Courtney) Ellis of Madison, OH and Bryanna Donahue of Raleigh, NC. Special Neighbors Dickie Trent, Joan Trent and Bobby Anderson. The Family would like to extend their appreciation to Chris Tipton, the staff of Lincoln Primary Care, Dr. Warris, the emergency room staff and the 4th floor staff of Logan Regional Medical center for their great work in comforting Buddy in his final days. Pall bearers will be his brother, sons and grandson who will provide a circle of love and respect to take Buddy to his final resting place. Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday May 11, 2021 in Highland Memory Gardens at Godby. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Krantz-McNeely Funeral home at Man.
