Ellie enjoyed watching sports and listening to music, in which he often did both at the same time. Most people knew Ellie as “Cochise”, he was loved and cherished by many people. When he was able, he went to every Strong football and basketball game he could even if he had to walk. Ellie’s favorite football team was the Steelers, and he was so happy about how well they were doing this year. 

Ellie never met a stranger; he would talk to everybody but granted most people knew who he was. Cochise is a name that spreads far and wide. 

Ellie was a loving brother and a great uncle, and he will truly be missed.
