Warren Joseph Ellis, beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather passed away on Friday, November 1, 2019 at Marin General Hospital, with his loving family at his side. Born in San Francisco in 1943, the son of the late Ralph and Cathryne Ellis, he was a graduate of Archbishop Riordan High School. During his high school years, Warren became a Hot Rod car enthusiast, buying and selling cars and more recently built from scratch a vintage 1934 Ford roadster.

He moved to Marin County in the 1970s, and worked in the Industrial Gases and Welding Products Industry for over 30 years.

Warren is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Francesca (Midge) Passanisi Ellis. He cherished his children, Nicole and James (Simi) and grandchildren Logan and Kylie. Warren is also survived by his cousins, brothers and sisters–in-law and many nieces and nephews. Warren was generous and welcoming, with a gentle nature and sweet smile. He will be remembered fondly by family and friends.

Dear Midge and Family, we were so sadden to hear about Warren, we were just so glad he was able to go to Pam's luncheon. That time will always be a fond memory for us. Please know you are in our prayers and thoughts. Let us know if we can help in anyway.
