Ronnie Ellis June 2016


Ronnie is a 30-year Knight who just transferred in from Council 3593 in Oak Cliff. You’ve probably seen him at multiple events at Holy Spirit as a member of Assembly 2799 and the Color Corps, which he has been captain of for the past five years. Ronnie is a Dallas native and a graduate of North Texas, where he earned a degree in secondary education. He retired from the Dallas Fire Department at the rank of Driver-Engineer following 28 years, 10 as a paramedic. In his so-called spare time, he was a substitute teacher in the Dallas ISD for 10 years. Ronnie joined the KC’s in 1986, remembering that Knights brought Thanksgiving baskets to his home when he was a child, and was the council’s Grand Knight for three years. Ronnie and wife Joyce are parishioners at St. Elizabeth of Hungary and will celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. She’s a District Deputy with the Catholic Daughters of the Americas.
