Ellis, Warren D.

August 15, 1934 — December 12, 2018

Warren D. Ellis, 84, passed away peacefully on December 12, 2018, at his home in Kearney surrounded by family. He fought a two-year courageous and stoic battle with cancer. Warren was one to live life to the fullest and never backed down from any challenge.

Warren was born August 15, 1934, in Rochester, NY, the eldest of two children of Charles W. and Alma B. (Carey) Ellis. Along with his parents, Warren was preceded in death by his son, Scott Ellis; grandson, Brandon Jacques; and great grandson, Karson Rodgers.

Warren retired in 1999 as a director of sales for Siemens Stromberg-Carlson. He loved to spend time with family and friends at his homes in Kearney and the Lake of the Ozarks. He had a passion for food, always making sure he had a 7-course meal planned. He traveled with a cooler and brought plenty of food for all to enjoy. Warren had a knack for mentoring and guiding people on all aspects of life, especially when it came to finances.

Survivors include his wife of 58 years, Patricia (Nawrocki) Ellis; daughters, Kim Jacques (Ted), Karen Lovekamp (Kevin) and Kathy Ellis-Hancock (Phil); grandchildren, Stephanie Oliver, Jenni Palmer (Jake), Heather Buckman (Ryan), Rachel Rodgers (Mike), Brock Richardson (Ashlee Ballard) and Gunnar Lovekamp (Kailey); great grandchildren, Peyton, Preslee, Makenna, Marley, Jaxon, Phoenix, Miles, Cora, Ellis and Charlotte. He also leaves his sister, Carol Welch (Frank Ciriello), as well as nieces, nephews, other family members and many friends.

Warren taught me so much about how to respect and serve the customer, but also how to have a lot of fun doing it. If someone asked me who I worked with at Stromberg-Carlson that I thought of as a true professional, I would say Warren Ellis. My sympathy to Kim and to all the family.

Arnie Kreek

I was one of those Sales Support guys who responded when Sales members like Warren requested a presentation or in my later days something related to Customer Satisfaction. Warren was just terrific, always on top of the Sales Effort, I just cannot say how good Warren was. I can say in Customer meetings Warren was on top of the meeting like nobody else I ever saw. So pleasant to work with so articulate, so product smart, just great to support. I am so sorry to hear of Warren's passing, this has touched me deeply. I will say prayers for Warren and his entire Family in this time of deep sorrow. I will miss Warren, may God Bless you all.
