April 14, 1922 - November 25, 2007 Ellis, fondly known to many as
Chief was proudly named after the man that taught him many of
life's lessons. He was a true outdoors man; an avid Sailor sailing
both in the Bay and out of the Golden Gate enjoying the freedom and
skills it took to successfully handle a sailing vessel. When given
a choice between the sea and the mountains it was the love of the
back-country that came first. Beginning as a child, Ellis spent
time hiking out of Kennedy Meadows in the Emigrant Wilderness of
California. He continued this tradition through his life spending
time each year in the back-country with friends, neighbors,
children and later grandchildren sharing experiences, life-lessons
and entrenching a lifelong love of the wilderness that have changed
the lives of so many. To Chief, this was "God's Country." He spent
his later years with his large family enjoying the stories of
others and telling stories of his own. You could expect to find him
in his yard from early in the morning after his large breakfast to
the afternoon. The simple enjoyments in life were truly embraced by
this amazing man.
