On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to express condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of attorney S.T. “Tom” Ellis on his recent passing.
Mr. Ellis’ exemplary career in the legal profession spanned more than 50 years, during which time he served the public as a member of the McDonough City Council, as McDonough City Attorney, as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives and the State Senate. He also served his country as an Army Air Corps veteran of World War II and was active in many areas of service to his church and community.
All Georgia lawyers can be inspired by Tom Ellis’ lifelong commitment to service, through which he worked to promote the cause of justice, uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all citizens. He will be missed by all who knew him.
