Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Donald "Don" Ellis, of Horry County on January 25, 2021, at the age of seventy-five; and

Whereas, born on November 24, 1945, in Williamsburg County, he was the son of the late Liston and Hallie Jacobs Ellis. He was predeceased by his brother G. L. Ellis; and

Whereas, he was the founder and owner of Ellis Heating and Air for twenty-three years. However, Don was in the heating and air business for fifty-one years; and

Whereas, a military veteran, he served with honor and distinction as a member of the United States Army; and

Whereas, Don is remembered as a loving husband to Mary Lee Calhoun Ellis, his wife of fifty-three years. In addition, he leaves to cherish his memory one son, two brothers, two sisters, three grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and a host of other family members and friends. He will be greatly missed. Now, therefore,
