FOULDS, Ellis Richard born July 22, 1935 in Edam, Sask. passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 20, 2003 at the age of 67. Throughout his noble battle with cancer, Ellis was at home, always surrounded by the love and dedication of his family. Survived by his wife, companion and soul mate Betty, his mother Clara, his four daughters, Laurie (Gordon), Valerie (Scott), Cathy (Pete) and Carol, grandchildren Paul, Kristen and Katie, his sisters Marion (Bill) and Diane, and many nieces and nephews. Ellis was predeceased by his father Duke and his brother Hughie.
Ellis began his successful career in sales at a very young age and loved the art of the deal. He immersed himself in life and always involved his family in his many outdoor pursuits. He was an avid horseman, hunter, fisherman and an impassioned gun collector, but his greatest joy was knowing that his family shared his passions and he’ll smile every time he looks down and sees them honouring his memory by continuing to participate in all the activities he loved.
The family would like to thank the home care nurses, homecare workers, Langley Memorial Hospital staff and Dr. Kenneth Ng for their warmth and compassion throughout this troubling time.
Memorial services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, May 23 at Henderson’s Funeral Chapel located at 20786 Fraser Highway in Langley. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Langley Chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society, Langley Branch 604-533-1258 or to the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation 604-533-6422
