Paul L. Ellis Sr.
Paul L. Ellis Sr., age 57, of Dubuque, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 19, 2020, at his home. To celebrate Paul’s life, private family services were held at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street.
Paul was born on May 8, 1963, in Chicago, IL, son of Aubrey Ellis and Mary Ivory.
Paul was born and raised in Chicago before moving to Dubuque and making it his permanent home in 1996. He was a hard worker who was employed with the Diamond Jo Casino, the 5 Flags Center and the Dubuque Rescue Mission. Paul was quite the story teller and had a joke for every occasion, which led to him acquiring several different nicknames throughout the years. He was always there to lend an ear to anyone who needed to talk and offer his advice. We will miss you Paul, and are thankful for all of the memories we have to cherish.
Those left to cherish Paul’s memory include
Paul Ellis Jr.,
and a daughter;
and his brother,
Jeff Ellis, Dubuque, IA.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents.
