Dick Ellison


It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Dick Ellison. Dick died on 24 April 2014. He had been unwell for several months and in intensive care since December.


Having been financial adviser to Joe and Elizabeth Hodgson for many years Dick was a founding trustee of the Hodgson Trust which created the Hodgson Scholarships. Many scholars will have met Dick at our annual dinner to welcome new scholars to Liverpool. Dick remained a trustee until he retired in July 2013 and said on his retirement how pleased he was to see the scholarships thriving and to have been able to help so many scholars.


Throughout his time as a trustee, in addition to his humour, kindness and knowledge of Joe and Elizabeth over a long period, he gave the Trust the same sound judgement, wisdom and attention to detail in financial matters that he had provided to Joe and Elizabeth in their lifetime.
