William ELLIS

Ellis, William Alexander (Bill)

(aka Shamrock)

1957 – 2010

Loving Son Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin and close Friend to many, passed away peacefully in Vancouver on June 23 after a brief illness. A music instrument technician, stage manager and avid sailor, Bill led a full and happy life. He travelled extensively with numerous noted Canadian and international rock bands since the early 1980’s. He was a great reader of books and a keen story teller who brought laughter to many in his life. A quick-witted, humourous and caring man, he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He will be in our hearts forever. Many thanks to the staff of the Royal Columbian and St. Paul’s Hospitals for their care and compassion during Bill’s final days. Bill is survived by his Mother, Helen Ellis, siblings Susan (Orest), Stephen (Madeleine), Richard (Gaye) and Jane, by his nieces Nicole, Melissa and

Jordyn and countless friends. Bill was predeceased by his Father, William (Bill) Ellis in 1999. No service by request. Donations to the Cardiac Care at Royal Columbian Hospital or St. Paul’s Hospital in Bill’s name would be appreciated.
