Condolences to the family and friends of Ellis. Ellis was such a friendly and very patient person to work with and I loved chatting about travel with him, especially about Hawaii. We'll miss him greatly.

Ellis was an amazing and interesting man. He had a great laugh and shared such fun and exciting stories. He took care of all our computer and network issues without compliant and always with a smile. There wasn't an issue we could bring him that he wouldn't take care of quickly so we could get back up and running. Thank you, Ellis for your hard work and dedication to our nation and our mission! We will miss you always! Love and prayers to your family and friends as we grieve your loss. Very respectfully, Jennifer Condon-Pracht, Lt Col, USAF

I knew Mr. Stillwell mainly through my friendship with his daughter, and there could not have been a better tribute. He impressed me as a private but deeply compassionate man of vast technical knowledge and impeccable craftsmanship; his passing is a loss to all who knew him. May his rest be peaceful and his family be comforted in this grief.
