Hubert E. “Ed” Ellzey Jr. died on Sunday, December 2, 2018. He is survived by his son; Lonn Edward Ellzey (Michelle) and grandchildren; Bryce Ellzey, Reid Ellzey, and Brooklyn Ellzey. He is preceded in death by his parents; Hubert and Julia Ellzey and his former wife and mother of his son, Janet Shaw Ellzey. Ed graduated high school from St. Martin’s Episcopal were he was a 3 sport letterman in football, basketball, and track. In his senior year, his relay team won the state championship in the 4x100, 4x200, and 4x400 relay. He later became a member of the St. Martin’s Athletic Hall of Fame for that accomplishment. Although he earned a football scholarship to Tulane University, he attended the University of the South (Sewanee) on an academic scholarship where he was a member of the academic honor society, the Order of the Gownsmen. After graduation, he attended Tulane Law School and went on to practice Law for almost 40 years. Ed had a love for a good cocktail, a good party, and watching sports, especially the high school football games coached by his son and the games his grandchildren played in. He loved his family and friends greatly, always selflessly putting their well being above his own. He will be missed by many. There will be a private celebration of his life for close friends and family. To view and sign the family guestbook, please visit www.leitzeaganfuneralhome.com
