My'Kal Ellis Obituary

Through all the pain and suffering, remember the joy that I brought into your lives. Life has a joyful beginning but sometimes it can be a painful ending for those loved ones, we leave behind. I don’t want my exit from this life to be painful for any of my family and friends, so begin each day with my contagious smile. As you celebrate the end of my life’s journey, I pray that each of you will find comfort in knowing that a loving and compassionate God knows what’s best for each of us. 

My’Kal Kashawn William Ellis was born on January 22, 2007, in Brunswick, Georgia to Kimberly Ellis Prince and Michael Butler.  He was the youngest of 10 children. He was educated in the Glynn County School System and was a rising sophomore at Brunswick High School.  My’Kal was a three-star athlete playing basketball, wrestling, and football. MJ was well-loved and liked by his peers and teammates. He was known for his sense of humor, kindness, sportsman-like conduct, and a joy to coach. My’Kal excelled at Brunswick High School both in class and on the football field. He was a dedicated football player and a running back.
