ELLERBECK, Christopher John - (1977 - 2019) - With Overwhelming grief and sadness, family and friends announce the sudden, unexpected and tragic passing of Chris on Thursday February 7th, 2019.
Deeply mourned by his mum Anne, and his dearest friend and companion Mike.
Chris was predeceased by his father Ron in April 2017, and his grandparents John and Deborah Mitchell and Francis and Edna Ellerbeck (Shapiro).
He is survived by his aunts and uncles Tom and Sharon Clark of Florida, Robert and Laura Mitchell of Burlington and cousin Amanda Mitchell.
Chris was a well-respected, knowledgeable and valued employee of CCOHS Hamilton and will be sadly missed by his many friends and co workers in Hamilton, Burlington and Western Canada.
He had wide and varied loves and interests including music - playing the tuba, movies, Scotland, finding and restoring old furniture, photography, and of course computers - he loved fonts! He faithfully watched "Jeopardy" each night and texted his final answers to Anne.
There are no words to express the loss we all feel.
Visitation at Smith’s funeral home, 485 Brant Street, Burlington will take place on Thursday February 14th, 2019 from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m.
