America's Fallen Hero's
SFC. Edward Alvin "Pappy" Ellis, Jr.
Edward Ellis - known by all as "Pappy" - served 21 years in the U.S. Army before retiring in 1991 as a SFC. He was an active member in Rolling Thunder from the very beginning. Pappy was a quiet man, but when he spoke, he was heard. He loved his family, his country, and his bike. Wherever Pappy was, you were sure to see his little shadow, his grandson Tony.
Pappy passed away December 1, 2005 after a long fight with the damage that was caused due to Agent Orange from his tour in Vietnam. He is missed by us all here, but he is riding among his brothers in Heaven.
