Nolan Ellzey passed away on Friday, May 18, 2018 at the age of 22 years.
Nolan was born December 1, 1995. A native of Madison, Nolan graduated from Canton Academy. He also attended Holmes Community College and Mississippi College. Nolan enjoyed snow skiing and hunting. A known sports fanatic, Nolan was an “authority” on football, baseball, basketball, and most sports in general. If there was any question, all you had to do was ask him…!
His greatest passion in recent years was playing softball with other young men from Broadmoor Baptist Church. His enjoyment of the game and the relationships it afforded was evident through constant batting practice with his dad as well as his desire to continue playing throughout his illness. Nolan valued the camaraderie of his teammates and he made an indelible mark on each of them.
Nolan is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents (Harry and Renie Nowell), his paternal grandparents (Scott and Agnes Ellzey), and his aunt (Shirley Knight).
Nolan is survived by his parents, Buddy and Sue Ellen Ellzey, his brother Logan Ellzey(Maegan), and nephew Cash.
He is also survived by his uncles John Ellzey (Becky), Jeff Nowell (Deborah), Harry Nowell (Carol), his aunt Jennifer Russell (Johnny), and a host of cousins and friends.
Great appreciation is extended to Dr. Betsy Herrington, Dr. Kathy Warren, and Ms. Dana Cole for the love and care they provided Nolan throughout his illness.
A celebration of Nolan’s life will take place at Broadmoor Baptist Church on Monday, May 21. Visitation will begin at 1:30 pm with a memorial service at 3:00 pm. A graveside service will follow at Parkway Memorial Cemetery. The family will be honored by your presence.
