After working in the oil patch in numerous places, they settled in the Bonnie Glen area and finally moved to the acreage south of Wetaskiwin in 1959, where he lived until his passing.

His many loves included chariot racing, rodeo, barrel racing, coffee and tea and going out for supper with friends. Snuffy was extremely proud of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and enjoyed watching them at rodeos, dance, baseball, hockey and everything else they were doing.
Ellis is survived by his son Claude (Bev); daughter Cindy (Colin); grandson Corey (Jenny); granddaughter Tensity (Dylan); great-grandchildren Lilly and Reed Lawes; Sutton, Rhett and Paicee Jones; special friend Linda Taylor; sister Lillian Hill as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
