It is with our deepest sorrow, we announce that Wyatt Ethan Ellis, age 22, our most beloved
son, born April 8, 1999, passed away suddenly on Friday, November 5, 2021
Those who knew Wyatt, even just a tiny bit, have lost a shining light in their lives.
Wyatt was born at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, CO, grew up in Berthoud, Colorado
and graduated from Berthoud High School in 2017.
While there Wyatt developed a great interest in computer and video technology and was a
highly-valued member of the Robotics Team, where he lettered twice, competed state-wide with
many team wins and went on to the “Micron Create” U.S. Open Robotics Championship in
Wyatt enjoyed every aspect of the Outdoors. He was an incredibly gifted and avid fisherman, he
enjoyed camping, hiking, target-shooting and hunting with family and friends. Wyatt had a great
love for animals (domestic and wild) and, honestly, never met an animal he didn’t love at first
Wyatt will be missed everyday by everyone he knew...his Mom Deborah Blanchette, his Dad Jay
Ellis, all of his incredible, loving family members, and all of his beloved friends.
We LOVE you Wyatt and MISS you so very much. We know you are with our Lord and He will
watch over you and keep you in His Loving, Everlasting arms; forever. We must now await the
time when we will be re-joined with you in our Lord’s time.
