Troy Ellis Obituary




     Troy Lee Ellis 61, of Owensboro, Kentucky passed away Thursday, December 14, 2023 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital.  He succumbed to multi-organ failure, secondary to stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  Troy Lee Ellis was born May 2, 1962 in Calhoun, Kentucky to the late Richard Hue “Richie” and Elizabeth Ann Huff Ellis and grew up in Rumsey.  Troy was a loving father, grandfather, and a friend to many.  He was a devoted boat captain and retired from the Crounse Corporation in 2022 after more than 40 years of service.  He was a friend to all of his neighbors.  Whatever he had, he would lend to someone in need, without hesitation.  Troy loved watching UK games with friends and also enjoyed fishing, camping at Windy Hollow Campground and boating.  In addition to his parents, Troy was preceded in death by a brother, Ricky Ellis.

     Troy is survived by two daughters, Amy Cameron (Eric) of Hawesville and Marissa Ellis of Owensboro; five grandchildren, Eric Lee Cameron, Cash Cameron, Haddie Jo Ellis, Grant Cameron, and Jackson Lee Stewart; and a sister, Bettina Hardesty of Hartford.
