Marc Ellis Obituary, Death -Officers from the Abbotsford Police Department responded to a collision on Lefeuvre Road on December 11 at around one minute past midnight. Marc Ellis, 38, was pronounced deceased at the scene after being hit by the driver of a 2019 red Dodge Ram pickup truck. Ellis was apparently trying to save a dog that had run across the street when he was hit and killed by a vehicle. Sergeant Paul Walker provided this information. Two of the pickup truck’s occupants can be seen leaving the area on foot in a video published on January 16. The truck’s owner has been identified as an employee of an Abbotsford-based company, according to police. “The vehicle in question was not reported stolen,” Walker added. “The probe is still ongoing.” “Investigators have attempted to contact the company’s proprietor; but, at this time, they are not complying with the ongoing police investigation.”
The police suspect Ellis and the male driver were at a party in the vicinity prior to the crash, and evidence of their attendance was discovered. “We are pleading with everyone who was present at this gathering to come forward and cooperate with the investigation by providing information to the police,” Walker said. A memorial fund has been established in Ellis’ honor, and people are leaving condolences all over the internet. He had a gentle soul and a big heart, and many people will remember him for that. “Marc was the type of person who was always willing to help people and generous with his time and money. He was always willing to help and made himself available to anyone at any time. A life cut brutally short much too early.” The canine and herpetological communities have both lost a lot of significant members as a result of his passing “says buddy Brad Hoffman.
Hoffman believes that the funds gathered would be used to bring Ellis’ mother all the way from the United Kingdom to Vancouver to say farewell to her son. Please call the Abbotsford Police Department at (604) 859-5225 if you have any information about this event.
