Elliot DeGeneres, Father of Ellen DeGeneres Sadly Passed Away At 92: "He Was Always Proud Of Me."
The second week of 2018 has turned out to be more of a nightmare for Ellen. With the horrifying mudslide striking in her residential area in Montecito and the death of her beloved father have taken a toll on the famous television host.
The 59-year-old host revealed the sad news to her audiences live on Thursday stating that her father, a former insurance salesman is no more.
She shared a picture of her with her dad when she was little and went on saying,
"That is my dad, Elliot. That’s me when I was, I don’t know how old I was, but I do remember that picture,"
She further added,
“He was 92 years old, he had a good long life, and he lived his life exactly how he wanted. He was Christian Science his entire life, he never had medicine his whole life — never went to a doctor. I never had a vaccination. We never had medicine growing up. And he lived to be 92."
She also shared how her father was always proud of her, telling he was a very kind man and there was not one bone of judgment in his body.

Ellen who's happily married to her partner Portia de Rossi also added she and her father had once visited a Warner Bros. lot when she was a little girl and now, she has her own lot, which always made him proud.
When I was a kid, my dad took us on one vacation to Warner Bros. Studios. He loved this business. He loved that I was in it. When he died, I saw this rainbow over the stage they named for me. pic.twitter.com/QQswe3mwfi— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) January 12, 2018
Also, just 10 minutes before the death of her father, Ellen saw a rainbow shining in the sky just above her Warner Bros. lot which she considered as a gift from her dad. It was an emotional moment for Ellen! May his soul rest in peace.
