Randall was born March 30, 1936 in Allen, NE to Armond and Helen (Anderson) Ellis.

After graduation he worked for the National Park Service and helped create the trail system in Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado.

He was a member of First Lutheran Church in Allen where he was baptized, confirmed, and sang in the choir. Through the years he was a member of the Allen Fire Department, American Legion, President of the Commercial Club and the NRA. He was a very active outdoorsman; snowmobiling, go cart racing, fishing, hunting, trapshooting where he received many trophies, Alpine snow skiing where he received multiple amateur racing medals, golfer, and an avid gardener.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy Ellis; son, Tod (Wendy) Ellis. Adel, IA; daughter, Sonya (Ron) Ver Mulm, Winterset, IA; grandchildren, Lindsey (Jon) Walker, Bellevue, NE, Lauren Ellis, New Orleans, LA, Sam Ver Mulm, Creston, IA; aunt, Barb (Don) Lehmann, Sioux City, IA; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Lots of fond memories of Randy: Deer and Antelope hunting with Tod and my Dad in western Nebraska, fishing and pheasant hunting near Allen, trap shooting in Wayne, skiing in Colorado just to name a few.


May he Rest In Peace, he will be missed by all who knew him.

Will always remember uncle Randy's warm smile and contagious laugh. We share the same birthday which I always thought was a special bond. I still have the china doll he brought back from Korea for me when I was just a toddler. My heart goes out to all his family and friends especially my aunt Nancy and cousins Tod and Sonya. Sending love and prayers.

I could write a book about the fun we had with the Ellis family, and Randy was always right in the middle of it. From the go-cart to trapshooting with tracer loads, (including him shooting an “attack owl” off the top of our roof) to just being there, a finer neighbor and friend cannot be found. My sincere sympathies to Nancy, Tod, Sonya and the entire family.

Oh, my, very fond memories of a down-to-earth, small town guy that lived an active, adventuresome life! He raised a great family so our heartfelt condolences to you, Nancy, Tod & Sonya and your families. Randy thought it was soooo funny when I face-planted on level ground while skiing so many years ago! Rest easy.
