Obituary: Ellis Slater Gilbert

Ellis Slater Gilbert, 24
Ellis Slater Gilbert, a lifelong resident of Hull, took his own life on Sept. 24. He was 24.
Ellis attended the South Shore Charter School and graduated in 2013. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in building construction technology in 2018 and went on to earn his master’s degree in building construction technology this year.  
Eager to start his career, he worked as a junior engineer with Rivermoor Engineering in Scituate.
Ellis was quick-witted and had a passion for humor that he shared with others; he took great joy in making all who knew him laugh. He loved learning and spent a great deal of his time researching a wide range of subjects. He was an extremely creative thinker and was very artistic. 
Ellis was also a talented visual artist, musician, and engineer, quite the tinkerer, and an aspiring recreational fisher. He was driven to take on challenging problems and found great satisfaction in successfully solving them.
He was the dearly beloved son of John and Robin (Rosiak) Gilbert, of Hull, and a cherished grandson of Pat Mills and Fred Rosiak, of New Jersey, and the late Jack and Nancyann Gilbert, of Scituate. He is also survived by scores of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and dear friends.
Ellis’ funeral services will be private. He will be interred in Hull Village Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in his name can be sent to Wellspring Multi-Service Center,, or to Wellspring, 814 Nantasket Ave., Hull, MA 02045.
