Paul George Ellis, 81, of Austin, Minnesota, went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Feb. 27, 2018.

Paul was born Jan. 17, 1937, in Austin to John and Laura (Akkerman) Ellis. He attended school in Austin and graduated in 1955. Paul married Bonnie Hynie on Jan. 18, 1959, at the First United Methodist Church in Austin.

He was very proud of all the buildings he moved, the over 500 sheds he had built all over town, and all the trees he had cut down. He had an engineering mind and was able to assess how to get something out, cut down, and even moved. He was a member of First United Methodist Church. Paul was very industrious and loved by his family and friends.
