In memory of
CLIFFORD JOSEPH ELLISON
ELLISON, Clifford "Cliff" Joseph, 88, of Midlothian, Va., passed into his heavenly life on January 31, 2013. He is survived by his loving, devoted wife of 64 years, Eva Thor Ellison; daughter, Sharon E. Tuckwiller (George); sons, Lee D. Ellison (Debbie) and Craig R. Ellison (Nina); nine grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren; and a sister, Jo Ann M. Bergwall of Oak Lawn, Illinois. A native of Chicago, Illinois, Cliff moved his family to Richmond in 1964 to continue a 27-year career with Reynolds Metals Co., which included work in sales, sales training, and human resources. He then enjoyed 15 years of development work for Alice Lloyd College, Pippa Passes, Ky. After that, he delighted in serving as a volunteer at Chippenham Hospital, a tour guide at the International Mission Board, and as a consultant for Century Construction Co. The model of a Christian gentleman, he was a very active and faithful member of Bon Air Baptist Church where he held multiple significant leadership roles through the years, including being selected as the first Deacon Emeritus of the church. His loving, caring manner earned him the affectionate title "The Bishop of Bon Air Baptist." His warm sincerity, gracious spirit, wisdom, kindness, and delightful sense of humor endeared him to his family, his co-workers and countless friends. During WWII, he flew 35 missions as a B-24 pilot in the Army Air Corps. A celebration of his life will be held at Bon Air Baptist Church, 2531 Buford Road, Friday, February 8 at 1:30 p.m., with a visitation/reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the Alice Lloyd College Scholarship Fund, Purpose Road, Pippa Passes, Ky. 41844, or the Youth Ministry of Bon Air Baptist Church. This obituary was originally published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
