Richard Ellington

Richard Allen Ellington, 44, of Edinburgh, IN passed away Thursday, June 18, 2020 at Fort Walton Beach Medical Beach Medical Center in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. He was born July 28, 1975 in Columbus, Indiana.

Richard’s family and friends will remember him as their favorite handyman and shade tree mechanic. He could work on and fix almost anything and loved everything that had a motor. Richard enjoyed being outdoors and was a beautiful free spirited man who had a great sense of humor and a huge heart.

Richard will be clearly remembered and missed by his parents Brenda McKee (Danny) of Franklin, IN and Ralph Ellington (Susie) of Linton, IN; his four children Alysia Drucker (Carl) of Fort Campbell, KY, Joseph Ellington and James Ellington both of Columbus, IN and Savannah Ellington of Franklin, IN; his three beautiful grandchildren Marceline, Darwin and Rowan Drucker; a brother Robert McKee (Sharon) of Columbus, IN; and sisters Wendy Allen (David) of Franklin, IN, Sarah Mair (Ben) of Jasonville, IN and Kathy McKee of Franklin, IN who all will cherish memories of Richard. He also had several nieces and nephews that will always remember him pestering them and joking around.

Richard was preceded in death by an infant son Joshua Allen Ellington; and his grandparents Ralph and Norma Ellington and O.E. and Mayvline Smith; and a brother Steven Inman.

The family will come together for a time of gathering and sharing to remember Richard on Monday, June 29, 2020 from 4PM until 7PM at Swartz Family Community Mortuary and Memorial Center, 300 South U.S. 31 (Morton Street) in Franklin, IN.
