He was a Life member #74 of AMSAT (thirteenth amateur to contact another radio operator via amateur satellite in each of the 50 states),
In addition Ellis was a skilled machinist whose other hobby was building model live steam locomotives from scratch. He also found time to enjoy the Tucson Symphony. He was a 50 year season-ticket holder of the Tucson Symphony.
