Christopher Ellefson Obituary, Death – Christopher Robert Ellefson, 46 years old, had been a resident of Beaver Falls all his life. He passed away on December 13, 2022, as a result of events that were totally unforeseen. Chris Ellefson was the son of the late Robert T. Ellefson, who was born on September 4, 1976, in the city of East Liverpool in the state of Ohio. Chris’s mother, Debra Ratkovich Ellefson, had previously passed away, and Robert T. Ellefson was also deceased. Chris’s love for both his family and his friends was profound throughout his life. Even though he was a fan of a wide range of musical styles, the Grateful Dead was undoubtedly his favorite band. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to whoever was in need, and he possessed the talent of being able to tell jokes at precisely the right time.
Books and poetry were Chris’s two favorite things in the world. He would often recite the proverb, “You will never regret the things you did; you will only regret the things you didn’t have the courage to do,” and he would mean every word of it. And Chris was courageous enough to love and live his life without much worry or concern for the consequences. Because of the profound love, they held for him, his loved ones, including his family and the friends he made over the course of his life, will grievously miss him.
If Chris were present, we could expect him to remark, “What a long strange trip it’s been.” Along with his mother, he will be greatly missed by the woman who was the love of his life, Autumn Edwards; his cherished daughter, Riley J. Ellefson; his son, Ryan Ellefson; his brother, Dustin Ellefson (and his wife Laura); his sister, Katie Ellefson (and her husband Jillie); his grandmother, Ann Ratkovich; and a number of other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. His mother will also be greatly Friends and family will have the opportunity to pay their respects to the deceased at the Noll Funeral Home Inc., which is located at 333 Third Street in Beaver, Pennsylvania 15009, beginning at 5 pm on December 16, 2022, and continuing until the time of the service at 7 pm.
