A very kind, considerate and funny man. He will be remembered and missed by so many people. He lived for family and his love for Jesus showed throughout all aspects in his life. Heaven is rejoicing at his homecoming. I pray the family find comfort and peace knowing they will be reunited in Heaven.

To Connie, Becky, Cindy, Penny, Ron, John, Nelda and extended family…sympathy extended in the loss of Ellsworth. Death for the believer just means a great sunrise in Heaven. Cherish your ‘earthly’ memories and you will have plenty to smile about and the promise of a reunion in Heaven. Remember all the great people at Riverview Bible Church and the impact they all had on my growth as a believer. Don’t forget to remember all who pass your way. smile sue junkins (former Riverview Bible Church member, piano player (at one time).
