Bob worked road construction, retiring after 30 years. He taught family and friends to work heavy equipment and he employed many of them.
Bob enjoyed hunting arrowheads, hunting, fishing and snow skiing. Most all of the Ellis family will remember all the camping and water skiing trips at Lake Lahontan on Horseman’s Point, playing horseshoes, Bob, teaching family and friends of his children or a complete stranger how to water ski. Bob rigged up a TV so everyone at camp could watch “Walking On The Moon.” That, we will never forget. . Bob’s last sport after retirement was golf.
