Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 7, 1900
Clackamas County
Oregon, USA
Death: Aug. 5, 1967
British Columbia, Canada

Born George Joseph Haylett but adopted the last name of his uncle, Fred Ellison. It is said he was a deserter, not proven though, for the reason of name change. George took his family back to Oregon in 1930 but returned to Canada shortly after. He was not legally married to the mother of his five children.

Well known in Powell River,BC as "Raspberry". Gave blood regularly, paid $25.00. Dr. Lyons needed blood and George was the right type, but had given within the 3 month period, but donated anyway. Next day George asked the Dr. how his patient was. The Dr. replied she was doing well, but had one heck of a hangover!
