Robert Lewis Ellingsen , Age: 58
February 02, 1962 -- December 10, 2020

Robert Lewis Ellingsen, 58, passed away suddenly on December 10, 2020. Born February 2, 1962 in Chicago to the late Ronald and Darlene (nee Oestmann) Ellingsen. Bob was the oldest of 3 siblings: Ronald (Ann) Ellingsen and Raymond (Jill Skelton) Ellingsen. Bob adored his 2 lovely daughters, Nellie and Molly Ellingsen along with the mother of his two daughters, Jeanne Warner.  Proud uncle of many nieces & nephews including:  Amanda, Jon, Danny, Raymond, Michael, and Noelle.  Dear nephew & cousin of the Ellingsen, Oestmann, Olson & Behrens families. Loving friend of  Raoul, Mt. Olive family and countless others.   

Bob’s roots were in the northwest side of Chicago. He graduated from Schurz High School where he played football & wrestled. He loved sports and you could always hear him cheering on the Cubbies, Bears, Hawks & Bulls. Bob had a hearty laugh and smile that lit the room when he entered.  Even though Bob lived a modest lifestyle, he found a knack to make something from nothing.  He enjoyed life by always being there for others with his gentle voice which many times turned into a jovial song. Bob’s hobbies included fishing, swimming, biking, weight lifting and recently taking up pickle ball.      

Bob cherished his many friendships especially his Mt. Olive family.  He had a deep faith in our Lord and lived it in his daily life.  He showed unconditional love for his daughters-Nellie & Molly- who were the joy in his life. They are his proud legacy. Bob will be deeply missed by all who loved him, but we will carry him in our hearts forever. We love you Bob!
