In the early morning of Saturday, May 13th 2023, Ellis Jonathan Harper passed away peacefully at age 88 with his son by his side at Dorothy Ley Hospice in Etobicoke Ontario, Canada.
He was born one of thirteen siblings on October 3rd, 1934 in North Trace, Trinidad and Tobago to the late Clement and Victoria Harper. He would later go on to marry his late wife Rita and the two immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1968 where they settled and called home. Their home would become a loving dwelling for family gatherings and Sunday dinners filled with laughter and storytelling cherished by those closest to them.
Ellis is survived by his son Brent (Izabela); siblings Agatha, Neutrice, Miriam, Yvonne, Adrian and Desmond; step daughter, Margaret; grandchildren, Hanna and Mikaela; step-grandchildren, Terrance, Latoya, Natasha, Angelique, Stephanie and Cheyann; his many nieces and nephews and extended family and friends of the Bowen, Waldron, Kellman, Trotman, Aleong, Achong, and Sealey families.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the doctors, nurses and volunteer staff of Dorothy Ley Hospice for the care given to Ellis in his final months.
He will be missed dearly and his memory will live on in the hearts of those he loved.
