Randel G. Ellison
December 27, 1941 – March 10, 2020
Randel Glen Ellison, age 78 of Monroe, passed away on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at Well Springs Lutheran Services.
Born on December 27, 1941 in Harrogate, TN from the union of Bruce and Georgia (Daniels) Ellison. He was one of 12 children in the family. Later on, he got married and raised a family of seven children.
Randel was a simple man although he was also known for being a workaholic. He worked as a Laborer at BioFit Engineered Products making office furniture for over ten years in Haskins, OH. At times, it seemed like the guys at BioFit became his second family because he was there so much.
In Randel's free time he enjoyed gardening, fishing, listening to old country music, watching NASCAR, and traveling to places like Florida, Tennessee, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Beloved father of Randel Ellison II of Fostoria, OH, Christopher Ellison of Newport, Nicholas (Angela) Ellison of Monroe, Clinton (Amy) Ellison of Rising Sun, OH, Joseph (Crisanta) Ellison of Fostoria, OH, Dakota Ellison of Rising Sun, OH, and Montana Ellison of Fostoria, OH.
