It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that John Ellis passed away on Thursday 2nd February 2017.
John and I have been friends for a long time and our mutual interest in Astronomy brought us together more closely
Our interest in astronomy was re-awakened by a “Stargazing Live” event at the De La Warr Pavilion in March 2012. We joined the ESAS society and went to several meetings.
We attended the Astronomical Festival at Herstmonceux in September 2013 and were encouraged to join the Wealden Astronomical Society which we did in October 2013 and have been members ever since.
He leaves his wife Irene, daughter Sue and son Ian who many of you will know.
He will be greatly missed by many.
