Ralph Michael "Mike" Ellis

July 10, 1953 — December 26, 2021

Ralph Michael Ellis passed away unexpectedly on December 26, 2021 at his home in Statesboro. “Mike” as he was known to family and friends was born on July 10, 1953 in Statesboro, Georgia where he  remained a life long resident. He was owner and operator of Ellis Travel Trailers.

When Mike wasn’t working and taking care of his business, he enjoyed the outdoors. Any opportunity he was afforded to go camping or fishing, he was ready.   But his greatest love was his family which also extended to his church family at East Main Street Church of God.

Mike is preceded in death by his parents, Jimbo and Betty Ellis and his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Denver and Leona Mixon.

He is survived by his wife, Alethia Mixon Ellis; his daughters, Rachel (Robert) Collins, and Jessica (Stephen) Porter; grandchildren, Ian Porter, Ariana Collins, Lily Porter and Jude Porter; sisters, Marie Autry and Cathryn Glasford; brothers, Wesley Ellis and Chuck Ellis; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral Services are planned for Tuesday, December 28, 2021 at 12:00 PM at East Main Street Church of God with Pastor Lelon Jeffers officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service beginning at 11:00 AM.  Interment will follow at Bulloch Memorial Gardens.

Honored to serve as Pall Bearers are Casey Autry,  Nick Bazemore, Tanner Parsons, Rhett Nichols, Jerry Culp, Ridge Carroll, Will Craig and Andrew Mixon.

In lieu of flowers the family request memorial contributions be made in memory of Mr. Ellis to the American Cancer Society at www.donate3.cancer.org or East Main Street Church of God, 403 E. Main Street, Statesboro, GA 30458.
