Marvon “Ellis” Willson

Passed away at his home with his children surrounding him on February 25, 2021. He was born October 19, 1934 in Price Utah to Myron Willson and Ada Marie Winder Willson.

He married LouJean Golding May 6, 1954 in the Manti LDS Temple. Together they raised 5 great children.

Ellis was raised in Elmo Utah and as a young boy he worked along side his mother and father doing farming, ranching and any work that needed to be done. When he was old enough along with working with his parents he would also work for other relatives and other farmers in town to help them and earn a little money to help out his family. As a young man he learned the value of work and helping others and was always willing to help anyone that needed help no matter who they were throughout his life.

After he married he worked for a few different ranchers and a few other jobs to provide for his family. He started working for a gas company in 1954 which was the beginning of his carreer in the the propane business which lasted over 50 years in that industry. After leaving his final job in the propane industry he was asked to serve on the LP Gas Board for the State of Utah where he served until last year. He also owned and operated Willsons Auto Salvage. He owned a gas station and mechanic shop in Wellington Willsons American. He also owned and operated Willsons Ranch in Elmo.

He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints through out his life and served honorably and to the best of his ability in many callings in the church which included Counselor in many Bishoprics and as Bishop for 11 years. He later was called as the Executive Secretary for the Wellington Stake Presidency and served with many Stake Presidents as probably the longest amount of years ever served in one calling in the church.

Ellis also served his community on the Planning & Zoning Committee for Wellington City for many years and served his community well. Above everything else Ellis and LouJean loved and served their family, their 5 children and their grandchildren and great grandchildren. He had many special memories of outing, parties and just spending time with each of his family members. He also served his parents & siblings and would do anything that he could to help any of them. Ellis had a kind and loving heart and served everyone that he knew had a need regardless of who they were, because he cared about people.

Ellis was very busy with his job, businesses, church callings and family, but he always took the time to do everything he did to the best of his ability.

Ellis always had a sense of humor and loved to kid around or give anyone a hard time. He liked to laugh and make other people laugh. He would make a joke and tease to lighten the mood with any situation, even to the end when he was so wobbly and unsteady on his feet to hardly walk and he said I thought you would like a final dance.

Ellis is survived by his children, Marvon (Alicia) Willson Wellington, Kristy (David) Prettyman Wellington, Terry Ericson Price. 13 grandchildren, 43 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.

Ellis was preceded in death by his wife LouJean Golding Willson, daughter Jerry Chavez, son Layne Willson. Also preceded in death by his parents Myron Willson and Ada Marie Winder Willson, siblings Lewie (Bonnie) Willson, Pattie (Kay) Willson, Polly Willson Hunt, Leland (Louise) Willson.

Oh where do I begin. Ellis was a amazing man. I worked at the Wellington subway for 14 years and everytime he would come in I would say to him “there’s trouble” and he would reply “double trouble”. I loved seeing his smiling face everytime. He always lightened the mood. He will be dearly missed.
