Steve Ellis Obituary, Death – With heavy hearts and tearful eyes, we gather to bid farewell to a dear friend and colleague, Steve Ellis. His unexpected and untimely passing last Tuesday week has left a void that can never be filled. As we remember and honor Steve’s remarkable life, we reflect on the indelible impact he had on the Elite family and the countless students who had the privilege of knowing him. Steve Ellis was not just a colleague; he was a passionate educator with a sharp wit and an endless enthusiasm for his craft.
Many of our students had the joy of experiencing his exceptional teaching skills and his unwavering commitment to their success. His dedication to imparting knowledge and nurturing the potential in his students will forever be remembered. Steve’s role extended far beyond being Elite’s Chief Instructor for Sail. He was a valued and integral part of the Elite family. His presence was felt throughout the organization, as he brought his expertise, dedication, and selflessness to every aspect of his work. Steve’s contributions went well beyond the classroom, and his impact was felt in the hearts of all who had the privilege of working alongside him.
In his selfless fashion, Steve devoted the last number of years to looking after his elderly mother. His kindness and sense of responsibility were evident in all aspects of his life, whether in his role as an instructor, a colleague, or a caring son. Steve’s legacy of selflessness and compassion will serve as a lasting reminder of the kind of person he was. The world will undoubtedly be a quieter place without Steve in it. His sharp wit, enthusiasm, and warm presence brought vibrancy and energy to every room he entered. His absence leaves a void that is impossible to fill, and his laughter and camaraderie will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
