Brian Lee Ellerby


Brian Lee Ellerby, 67, passed away on April 29, 2010 in Seattle, Washington with his wife Mary, son Don and sister JoAnn at his side.  Brian was born on September 1, 1942 to Don and Jonette Ellerby. Brian and Mary were married on March 18, 1967 and three years later their only child Don was born. From an early age Brian was an avid model railroader.  In 1977 he transformed his hobby into a career by starting his own business Evergreen Scale Models. Model railroading was a life long passion of Brian’s.  The basement of every house he lived in was quickly converted into a layout and the journey of designing and building the layout, with his friends, was more important than finishing it; see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rycEkd8RBE0.

Brian is survived by his wife Mary, son Don (Mairead Stackpoole), grandchildren Ronan, Liam and Cara, father Don, sister JoAnn (Brian Eells), other relatives and friends. A reception at the family home is on May 22 from 1 to 4 pm.
