He was a very spiritual person and was ordained a Deacon of the Catholic Church where he served for many years. In his later years, Dan led a faith driven life built upon recognizing the beauty and goodness in all things. He found great joy in music, deep conversations on spirituality and growth, and nearness to those he loved.

Survived by his life partner, Clinton Powell; his children Karrie Ridley, Daniel Ellsworth Jr. (Terri), Christopher Ellsworth (Brooke), Matthew Ellsworth, and Mark Ellsworth (Jackie), as well as his former spouse and friend, Johanna Ellsworth; ten grandchildren; Alex and Mackenzie Ridley, Marissa, Hanna, Hayden, Jacob, Joshua, Zachary, Greyson, and Morgan Ellsworth.
