James H. Ellis

James H. Ellis, 78, of Bridgewater passed away on March 17, 2019 at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton after a sudden illness.  He was the loving husband of the late Kathleen R. (Rubelli) Ellis who passed away last month on February 6th.  He was the son of the late Harvey and Rose (Cordeiro) Ellis.

Jim was a proud Navy Veteran serving right after high school.  As a kid he was an exceptional baseball player.  He was a lifelong Bridgewater resident, working many years for the Town of Bridgewater.  He retired as the Head Custodian of Williams School in Bridgewater.

James enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time outdoors.  He liked reminiscing about the past with his son Chad.  He loved going to the camp with friends and his father.  Most of all he loved spending time with family and always having his wife Kathleen by his side.

He is survived by his son, Chad James Ellis of Taunton; his sister-in-law, Susan Johnson of Middleboro and his niece, Heather Martin.
