Bobby Lee Ellington



On August 24, 2022, Bobby Lee Ellington, age 74, of Royse City, TX, went to be with the Lord.  The love Bob had for his family was immeasurable.  He was strong, brave, modest, and humble.  He was a teddy bear and gave the best hugs. 

Bob was born in Ft Worth, TX on September 3, 1947.  He graduated a proud Colonel from South Garland High School in 1966 - the first graduating class. He met his soul mate, Patricia Barrett Ellington, in September of 1971, and they were married 6 months later.  They celebrated 50 years together on February 12 this year. 

Bob had a love for history, (especially the Civil War), football, coaching, old time rock & roll, antique cars, and camping with his family when his kids were younger.

Bob is survived by his wife Pat; son John Ellington and wife Shannon; daughter Amy Weems and husband Barry; grandson Kyle Tumlinson; granddaughters Ariel Arnett, Hannah Jankowski and  husband Charlie, Becca Tumlinson, Kaitlynn and fiancé Payton Buck, and Gracie Ellington; great-grandson Johnathan Cheshire; great-granddaughters Caroline and Marie Jankowski; brothers Jimmy Ellington and wife Diane, and Donnie Ericson and wife Mayra; sister Barbara Ewell and husband Mike; plus numerous nieces, nephews and other family members.
