George N. Ellisor, 59, passed away Thursday, March 15, 2018, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born Sept. 16, 1958, in Houston, Texas, to Roy Lee Ellisor and Pearl Katherine Pierce. He was a scholar throughout high school in Shreveport, Louisiana. He worked in the food service industry and loved to cook before serving his country for seven years as a submariner and ultimately training officers and replacements before leaving the Navy.
He worked for EG&G for 20-plus years, meeting the love of his life, Judy Lynn Henson Gladden, while transitioning\transferring to Tooele, Utah, in 1996 to help in the destruction of our nation’s chemical weapons.
He is survived by his daughter Leah Ford Ellisor; stepchildren, Ronald R. Gladden (Amanda), Rusty L. Gladden (Casey), Charles W. Gladden (Annisa) and Tamara M. Beck (Ken); granddaughter and caretaker Tristan Beck; 18 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 16 years, Judy; his parents, Roy and Pearl; and his beloved dog Max and favorite cat Minnie.
George had a gentle soul. He loved traveling, coin collecting, building and fixing computers and music. Fleetwood Mac lost their #1 fan. He worked in many professions, always helping others. He would fix any computer, spending hours on the computer writing his own programs to help him simplify his life. He loved NASCAR and camping with his friend of 20-plus years, Terry Gray and his family. Terry’s kids thought of him as the best uncle they have ever known. He was a loving person, father and friend and will be missed by many.
We would like to give a special thanks to the Veterans Administration, V.A. for its help during the past years. Good night Papa, we love you. Memorial services will be held at a later date.
