Robert Ellsworth Memorial

Our dear friend Robert Ellsworth passed way suddenly over Easter weekend. Unfortunately, Robert did not have finances or a plan put in place for this sudden tragic loss.  As a result, there are expenses his family will have to absorb including clearing out his apartment and the mortuary costs. We would like to raise money to help his family pay for these expenses and to provide a memorial tribute to Rob. 

The sudden loss of a loved one is difficult. We would like to take some of the financial burden off of his family so they can focus on grieving the loss of their son and brother.

All money raised will be donated directly to his family.  We appreciate your support and understanding.

More detail on the memorial to follow.

From the Ellsworth Family:

"It is with great sadness that we wanted to let all of you know that our son, brother, uncle and great friend Robert Ellsworth has passed away.  
Rob was an extraordinary man and, even though we lost him too soon, we celebrate the time we had with him. Rob had a huge generous heart, a bigger-than-life personality, and brought us laughter and joy.  He had a deep devotion for his family and friends, and for his Mom whom he loved more than anything.  He touched many people with his talent through his teaching, his writing, his unique creative voice, and his humanity. We hope he will stay in your heart and prayers forever.”
