Play Tribute Movie

Bossier City, LA – Mr. Jerry Lee Ellis, 63, of Bossier City, Louisiana passed away peacefully at home the morning of Thursday, March 26, 2020, with his beloved wife at his side.

Jerry was born Tuesday, July 17, 1956, to the proud parents Curtis and Helen Ellis, in Marks, Mississippi. Jerry was the first born of ten Ellis children. The family was in Bossier City while Jerry was in his teens, as Jerry went to Bossier High School.

Jerry’s father loved to travel and some of that sure ‘rubbed-off’ on Jerry, as Jerry’s profession was that of a Truck Driver. Not only would he be tuned into his CB Radio for Traffic reports, he’d be tuned into FM Radio in hopes of hearing his favorite song: Long Cool Woman in Black Dress. Jerry enjoyed a lot of things, especially camping and fishing. Jerry was known for being a kind-soul and appreciating the simple things in life, as simply seeing kids playing would always bring a smile to his face.

Yet, what Jerry loved most was his big ole family, as he was a very loving son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather.

Preceding Mr. Ellis in death were: his youngest child, a son, Michael Ellis; brother, Chuckie Lyn Ellis, brother Curtis Washington Ellis; father; Curtis Ellis; and mother Helen Jennie Stafford Ellis.

Mr. Ellis is survived by: his beloved wife, Mary Elizabeth Murphy Ellis; son, Jerry Ray Ellis, daughter, LaRhonda Ellis Moore; step-sons, Dennis Webster, John Goode, and Charles Goode. Also left to cherish his memory and carry on his legacy are: grandchildren, Stephanie Moore, Brittani Ellis, Markus Moore, Doug Moore, Jordan Moore, Rachel Ellis, Michael Ellis Angle Webster, Daniel Webster, Diesel Webster, London Goode, Jonathan Goode, and Jayden Goode; and eleven, great-grandchildren; along with seven siblings: Donald Ellis, Diane Ellis McGurk, John William Ellis, Rita Ellis Holloway, Norma Ellis Netherland, Steve Ellis, and Chris Ellis.

A celebration of life for Jerry will be held on Saturday, May 23, 2020, within the Chapel of Hill Crest Memorial Funeral Home, Haughton, LA.

I remember when I used to come stay with ya'll in the summer. Aunt Jenny would make all of us pallets and one particular time I was scared and Jerry reached down off the couch and held my hand and assured me everything will be alright and then I went to sleep. Jerry will be missed but he is not hurting any more. To all my family, I want you all to know I love you all and praying for you all. I am looking forward to going to heaven one day when my time is finished here on earth so I can see Jesus and all my other love ones. Remember always, Jesus loves you and is always there with you all so if you find yourself feeling down just reach out to Jesus' hand and He will be there for each one of you. Also, remember your cousin Kay loves ya'll very much. We have had some great times together and will again one day.❤❤❤

Jerry was a friend of ours and employee of La Gator Trucking. He was a kind soul and always went out of his way to help others. He will always be remembered with a smile on his face. I will miss seeing him wave through the shop window at the end of the day just to say hi.
