Caleb Ethan EellsMarch 23, 2002 ~ January 1, 2018 (age 15)
Caleb Ethan Eells, 15, passed away on January 1st, 2018. He was born March 23, 2002, in Portland, OR; the son of John Anthony and Terri Lynn (Smith) Eells.
He was an exuberant and loving son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew, and friend whom spent many a boyhood year exploring the Molalla and Colton hills, fishing and swimming in nearby rivers. Caleb was a fun-loving boy who thrived on adventure. His passions included fishing with his father, snowboarding with sister, father and uncle, shopping and eating out with his mom, dancing, football, and riding quads with family and friends. He was constantly found laughing, joking and teasing his adored family. When home, it was a rare occasion when Caleb was without his cherished lab Tank by his side, whom he’d had since age seven.
Caleb was preceded in death by his paternal grandfathers Arthur Harold Eells and Meno Seethoff and his maternal grandmother Connie Max.
Caleb is survived by his parents; John and Terri, sister Autumn, and his loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
The family would like to express special thanks to the Holman Hankins-Bowker & Waud Funeral home, as well our friends and coworkers that have opened their hearts to our family.
Funeral Services will be held at Holman Hankins-Bowker & Waud Funeral home, in Oregon City, on Saturday, January 27th at 2:00 PM.
