He was born the last of eleven siblings, having seven brothers and three sisters.
He lived most of his life in Vienna, VA accumulating many fond memories of days filled with adventure, family and friends. He attended schools in Fairfax County, Louise Archer Elementary and Graduated from Luther Jackson High School.
In 1963 he married Constance Chichester. From that union, two loving children were created: Sherri L. Ellis-Walker (Bobbi) and Robert Malloy Ellis (Babe).
To support his family, Butch was initially employed at St. John’s Catholic Church in McLean, VA. From there, he became an expert auto mechanic for many years. He purchased his first home for his family in Vienna at the age of 24. Deciding he no longer wanted to work for or under others, he began on the path of starting his own residential construction company. Butch started with one hammer a tool belt and limited construction skills. But after one year of gaining knowledge and perfecting his construction skills with Barlow Construction, Ellis Home Improvement was created. Butch continued building and designing until his health no longer permitted him to continue. Upon his retirement, he passed his hammer and tool belt and building legacy on to his son.
His favorite past time was auto racing, building and rebuilding cars, motorcycles or anything else with wheels. He loved fishing, bowling, poker, spending quality time with family and friends. Often after a hard day of work, you would find him with his work crew and friends relaxing and enjoying themselves on what will be remembered as “Butch’s Front Porch”, which was something that was sorely missed when he moved to Culpeper, VA in 2001. He enjoyed the peace and serenity of his new home in Culpeper until the day the Lord called for him.
Butch is survived by his wife, Connie Ellis of 56 years of marriage and his two children, Bobbi and Babe. Butch was also blessed with six Grandchildren, Chantele Roberts, Deandre Ellis, James Walker (Scoot), Asia Roberts, Victoria Ellis and Justin Walker. Three Great Grandchildren, Malik Roberts, Zoey Lucas and Ka’Liyah Ellis. Three brothers, Harold, Albert, Joseph and one sister, Elnora Ellis, his loving mother-in-law, Josephine Wall and devoted brother-in-law, Charles Chichester along with a huge host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
