    My husband worked with Cyril and James Ellis for several years and always had some funny stories they would tell him. Cyril was always friendly and happy to visit with folks that he ran into! He was a dedicated worker that stubbornly kept going when most sat down! I know he will be missed by many and left lots of wonderful memories to them. Thanks for the smile that you always gave me when we would run into each other, it will always be a warm reminder of the person he was.
