Mr. Ely was the greatest music instructor EVER. He was tough but he was also a fun person. He taught me for 3 years at Channeview HS. Sorry that I did not know of his passing until today. He will be greatly missed.

Mr Ely was my choir director during high school at Channelview. His ability to bring out the music nuances in our choir was an amazing and natural talent. I had always wondered what became of Mr Ely and would often look for him through out the years. I'm sad to see if his passing, and at the same time grateful to see he lived a long life surrounded by family and friends who loved him. All of my memories of Mr Ely are filled with fondness and admiration. God rest his soul.

Bob was such a supporter of the choir and the music programs at Moody Methodist Church and I will remember him tomorrow as I sing with the chancel choir. It was wonderful to get to know Bob and share his love of organ music. I had been missing Bob in the second pew during the 11:00 service. That pew will never look right anymore. Miss you Bob !!

My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.   Find strength and comfort from God.  At  2 Corinthians  1:3, 4  it describes God as "the God of all comfort who comfort us in all our trials".  This promise assures the family that by turning to God you can receive help during this difficult time.  The  bible also promises that soon death will be no more Revelation 21:3, 4  and the hope of a resurrection John 5:28, 29.
