Andrew Roy Ellison, 62, of Clinton, CT passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 20, 2020, in the loving arms of his wife, 3 daughters and granddaughter.

He was born on November 26, 1957. Andy, aka “Woody”, was preceded by his siblings Millie, Andrea, Ana, and Michael; his mother Hellen Ellison, and father Roy Ellison. He was survived by his wife Cindy; daughters Jaimie, Jessica (Brett) Jensen, and Jackie (Jason) Rodriguez; granddaughter Gianna; and sisters Catherine, Debbie (Steve) Burk and Sherry (John) Battista, along with many nieces and nephews.

Andy was a devoted father, husband and Poppy – they were his greatest joys in life. Andy was an avid fisherman and enjoyed spending his free time out on his boat on Long Island Sound. He spent over 40 years as a master wood craftsman, leaving a piece of his workmanship in countless homes in the coastal community. His gregarious and lively personality will be greatly missed by the countless people who were fortunate enough to be in his presence. He impacted so many lives on Shore Road in his 62 years and will be missed immensely. In the words of Andy, “SEE YA!!!”

One of my favorite memories of Andy is when we were much younger, on the bus to school, and he had taken one of those funny leaf twirlers and split it open and stuck it over the bridge of his nose. He was such a joker... so much laughter when we were kids... I rode my bike down to the salon for haircuts with his Mom. All the ladies in curlers and under dryers would sing his praises and delight in how tall and handsome he was, He just smiled with that good old Andy expression on his face and said a quiet hello on his way out, while Helen glowed with pride.

I adored Woody. He was such a fun, caring, talented, hard working and entertaining guy. His eyes could light up a room and his hands could create a masterpiece. When he was working at our house he saw an outboard motor in our garage and his eyes lit up and told us that it would be perfect for his boat, how much? We gave it to him as we knew how much he loved to go out in his boat and we wanted to be a part of his boating adventures. Woody was just an over all great guy, a gentleman and he will truly be missed. My condolences to his family.....

Andy was the best neighbor, I will miss seeing him every morning when I walked my dog and he would pull up with his Dunkin Donuts coffee and his sidekick Reese To say hi. This time of year he would show up with a bucket of tomatoes from his prolific vegetable garden at my back door. Andy’s generous spirit will always be remembered, from Sharing vegetables to fish to advise on a home project we will miss you Woody, see ya!

We were lucky to meet Andy and his family about 26 years ago when we moved to Shore Road. His daughter Jackie is now our daughter-in-law and soon to give us a new granddaughter. Andy and family have been our loving friends and family since and we couldn't be more happy to have them in our lives. We will always remember Andy who was always willing to help his neighbor with unselfish thoughts and willingness to please. We can only express the empty feeling we will have not seeing him on the beach, or our deck and the loss we feel not having him in our presence. He will always be a part of our family and always in our hearts and memories. We will miss you Andy and will always love you. As you said just the other day, "See Ya!"

Our two families have been linked for three generations. Friends, wives, children, grandchildren, with such grand memories and celebrations. There is no appropriate time to say goodbye right now! Thank you for being the best second Dad to my children, and giving so much love to my grandchildren - especially Makayla, who idealize you! I will forever be happy when I called you and started talking you knew it was always me, Deb.
