    Bill Ellis was a good propane man. He knew how to fix everything. If Bill could not make it work it was not broken.

    Bill Ellis was one of those people that when you met him you would soon realize you had a friend. Bill was always ready to help what ever the need was. He would make you feel like what ever you needed was the most important thing he could do for the day. I will never forget Mr. Bill Ellis (Wild Bill From Roopville)
