Marc Ellis Obituary, Death – The police have released more information about the death of an Abbotsford man who was killed just before Christmas while attempting to save a dog that had run onto a road. Officers from the Abbotsford Police Department responded to a collision on Lefeuvre Road shortly after midnight on December 11. Marc Ellis, 38, was killed at the scene after being hit by the driver of a 2019 red Dodge Ram pickup truck. Ellis was attempting to rescue a dog that had run onto the road when he was hit and killed by a vehicle. Sergeant Paul Walker provided this information. On a video released on January 16, two people riding in the pickup truck can be seen fleeing the scene. According to Abbotsford police, the owner of the truck has been identified, and it is a local business.
“The vehicle in question has not been documented as stolen,” Walker says. “Investigators attempted to speak with the company’s owner; however, at this time, they are refusing to cooperate with the police investigation.” The two people inside the pickup truck at the time of the accident are thought to be on their way to a nearby party, according to police. “‘We know people who were present at this party have vital information that will assist in advancing this investigation and bringing the driver responsible for Marc’s death before the courts,’ Walker says. “This information will aid in the prosecution of the driver responsible for Marc’s death.
“Marc was the nicest person you’d ever meet, and he was always striving to be better. He was always willing to help and was always available to anyone who needed him. A life that was tragically cut short. Both the canine and herptile communities have suffered greatly as a result of his death “says his pal Brad Hoffman. The funds, according to Hoffman, will be used to bring Ellis’ mother from the United Kingdom to Vancouver so she can say her final goodbye to her son.
