Jeffrey John ‘Jeff’ Ellam

November 12, 1943 – August 19, 2020
Forever In Our Hearts!
Jeff, you probably didn’t ever realize just how much all of your family and friends admired your kindness and caring nature.
Your smile and sense of humour will be remembered always. You possessed so many wonderful gifts and qualities of which the following are just a few.
You found joy in your role as Mr. Fix-it. You touched so many lives with your willingness to quickly come to the rescue when something was in the need of repair.
Your skill as a picture framer leaves many with pictures on their wall, evidence of your handiwork. The hours you spent in your workshop working with wood produced many projects, including charcuterie and rummoli boards, all treasures for your family and friends to remember you by.
Golf brought many hours of fun and happiness as you enjoyed it together with wonderful friends.
Jeff, you will be forever missed by me, your loving wife Marj; your sons, Marc (Celia), Craig (Carrie), Jeff, Dean and Rory (Toby) and daughter-in-law, Shelley. Your grandchildren, Sarah, Sam, Chase, Calyyb, Nicole, Jesse, Bayley, Taylor, Makaila, Gage, Danny, Kenny, Jarred, Krista and Buster all have wonderful memories of summers at the lake and the endless love you gave to them.
Jeff, you lost your battle with cancer after a brief stay in the North Okanagan Hospice but what comfort it brought to me, your wife, to be able to remain with you right to the very end.
Although we are now physically apart, you forever will remain in my heart.
We as a family are so thankful for the care and compassion Jeff received at both the Vernon Jubilee Hospital and North Okanagan Hospice.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Jeff to the North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506-27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4.
Cremation arrangements were made with Bethel Funeral Chapel Ltd., 5605-27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5, 250-542-1187.
