Allen Stuart Ellebracht
September 21, 1954 – March 26, 2018
Allen Stuart Ellebracht, age 63, went to be with the Lord on Monday, March 26th, 2018 at his home in San Antonio, Texas.
A memorial service for him will be held at Colonial Funeral Home (625 Kitty Hawk Rd, Universal City, TX) on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018 at 6:00pm.
Allen was born on September 21st, 1954 to parents Eddie and Marie. At age fifteen he bought his first motorcycle, a candy red Honda SL 90. To Allen, riding motorcycles was more than just a hobby; it was freedom and it was flying. That interest led him to work on cars throughout his high school years at Thomas Jefferson High School, where he graduated in 1972.
One of his other hobbies was working with wood, a skill that would allow him to contract houses with his father and interact with his future father-in-law. On February 23rd, 1991 he joined Joan Del Castillo in marriage and had their first child Hailey ten months later. Two houses and two years later they had their second child Bradley.
Allen was a master mechanic and was responsible for painting the first line of Toyota Tundras at the southside San Antonio plant when it opened in 2006. He spent his free time watching old movies and documentaries, listening to music, working on cars and motorcycles, and spending time with loved ones.
Allen’s final days were spent walking the family dog (Jake) and hiking with his daughter to Comanche Hill’s peak. While his passing was unexpected, his family is proud that he felt better exercising and enjoying the outdoors; something he grew up doing as a boy.
He is survived by his wife, Joan D Ellebracht; daughter and son, Hailey & Bradley Ellebracht; mother-in-law, Vicky Del Castillo; brother and sisters-in-law Jesse, Jean & Janet Del Castillo; niece and nephews, Christina, James, & Joshua Del Castillo and Nick & Chris Ellebracht; and brother Kenneth Ellebracht.
His friends and family remember him as “larger than life” and “a kind-hearted friend.”
He will surely be missed.

We were so sad to hear of Allan's passing. We enjoyed him at the Danz Reunion every year and were so glad that he was coming around and being with family again. We enjoyed his jokes and laughing at ours. He will be missed. Sorry we could not make the Memorial this evening. Chester Ellebracht, his cousin, had back surgery February 1st and he can not take the long drive in the car sitting. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and our love.

First of all to Allen's family I am sorry for your lost and we will pray to God to lift all you at this difficult time. Just wanted to share a memory of your dad ,husband, brother, and other extended family or friend or all that knew Allen.. Allen was a big brother to all of us little guys. I grew up with Kenneth , Allen's little brother. Allen was the coolest cat around. He loved motorcycles and was the guy who could tear apart and car or motorcycle and put it back together with no parts left over. Allen smoke cigarettes at a very young age at that time it was cool. Allen was the guy who would watch out for us little guys. . I will never forgot Allen. I know Allen is in heaven working on a motorcycle with his wings on. Godspeed Allen!
