We lost a great man. Robert 'Chris' Ellis passed away Thursday. Chris was a member of Heron Creek Golf Club and we had the privileged to play with him several times.  Monday night we paid our respects at Heintz Funeral Home in Clinton and waited in a line almost 2 hours long. It was so touching to see how many lives Chris touched, not only to my husband and I but to his wife Susan.

Chris served in the Navy as an engine man and was involved in several veteran's organizations. He and his wife played Mr and Mrs Claus for several years. He will be greatly missed.


You can donate to Feed the Vets, the Rome Veterans Clinic, or to the DAV in Chris’ memory. You can also sign the sympathy card at Heintz Funeral Home.

With Chris' unexpected passing, it makes you even more thankful this time of year. Share what you're thankful for.

Heaven's gain is our loss. Til we meet again Chris.
