Bradley Jefferson Ellis was born on September 5, 1981 in Austin, Texas. Brad was called Home by our Heavenly Father on Monday, June 11, 2012.

Brad graduated from Lake Travis High School in 2000 and from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master of Professional Accounting in 2005. Brad was employed by Ryan LLC, a professional global tax services firm, as a senior consultant.

Brad is survived by his parents Jeff and Cynthia Ellis of Lakeway; his brother Blane Ellis and wife Kendall of San Antonio; sister Brooke Ellis of Austin; grandparents Howard and Maureen Ellis, Nora Dudley, and Rnell Chapman; numerous loving aunts, uncles, and cousins; and many wonderful friends and co-workers.

Brad was preceded in death by his grandfather, Branch W. Chapman and aunt, Brenda Horton.

Brad was an avid sportsman and loved the outdoors. He had a particular love for bow hunting. He spent many happy weekends with family and friends at deer leases and ranches across Texas. He was also a sports enthusiast and loved his Texas Longhorns. Brad had a passion for excellent health and fitness and inspired others with his healthy lifestyle. He was an excellent cook and was particularly proud of his grilling skills, often texting pictures of his culinary accomplishments to friends and family. Brad attended Lake Hills Church in Austin.

Brad was extremely close to his family, friends, and co-workers. He was professional, detailed and always had a plan of action. Brad was compassionate, gentle natured, sweet spirited, and a driven competitor. Many friends have shared they are better people for having Brad in their lives.
