Gregory Stephen EllisMarch 21, 1947 ~ November 6, 2017 (age 70)
Our papa Greg passed away at home on November 6, 2017 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born on March 21, 1947 to Stephen Wayne Ellis and Althea Gwen Johnston. After returning from military service in the Vietnam War, he met and married his sweetheart, Connie Rae Sutton in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 8, 1970. Greg was at his happiest while watching classic movies, eating out, and playing card games with his family. In his spare time he loved going camping, fishing, family road trips, collecting sports cards, beanie babies and memorabilia. He worked at nurseries as a salesman and could always remember the Latin names of plants and shrubs. He had a very loving and gentle heart when it came to his wife, kids, and grandchildren and was always more than willing to help them feel better when they were sad.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years Connie, his 3 children, Samantha (Andrew), Crystal, and Stephen (Kasey), and his adoring grandchildren.
