Christopher John Ellis, 38, of Silverton, a former Baker City resident, died April 25, 2004.
A small family memorial service will be scheduled later.

Chris was born on Aug. 21, 1966, at Portland and spent his early years in Medford. In 1978, the family moved to Silverton where he completed high school and was active in athletics, particularly baseball.

He graduated from Eastern Oregon University at La Grande with a degree in accounting. He married Sami Baisley of Baker City, and moved to Burns to work as an accountant. He became a certified public accountant CPA, remained in Burns for several years and was active in the Harney County Chamber of Commerce, eventually serving as president.

In 1998, he took a position in Baker City as an accountant/CPA with Guyer, Lindley, Bailey and Martin. A few months later he was diagnosed with brain cancer and struggled with it until his death.

In 2002 he moved to La Grande to be near his daughter. For the past year he resided in Silverton with his parents.

The family wishes to acknowledge the caring and support provided by hospice services in Baker City, La Grande, and the Willamette Valley. They especially acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of Guyer, Lindley, Bailey and Martin on Chris’ behalf.

Survivors include his daughter, Taylor of Riverview, Fla.; brothers, Steve of Renton, Wash., and Tim of Seattle, Wash.; and sister, Prema, of San Diego. His parents are David and Sonja Ellis of Silverton.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pathway Hospice.
