Mr. Ellis Davis was born June 20, 1928, in El Dorado to the late Willie Davis and Lena Woods. He ended this life's journey on Monday, August 27, 2018, at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock.

Mr. Davis united with the Zion Watch Baptist Church where he was a faithful mem-ber for many years serving as the President of the Usher Board. He then united with the Mt Zion Baptist Church where he also served as President of the Usher Board and a faithful member until his health began to fail. He was a doorkeeper for the Lord for over 40 years and we take comfort in knowing that he is standing at the doors of heaven. Mr. Davis was also preceded in death by his only brother Mr. John Davis.
