Saukville resident Edwin G. Ellefson spent as much of his time as he could in the outdoors, and took special pride in teaching his grandchildren how to hunt and fish and how to construct almost anything.

Mr. Ellefson, 72, died Monday, March 20, of pancreatic cancer at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.

He was born in Middle River, Minn. on Nov. 12, 1944, the son of Edwin and Maguerite Cox Ellefson.

After high school, Mr. Ellefson served in the Army National Guard.

On Sept, 28, 1968, he married Betty Morrow.

“They had a great marriage and were inseparable,” said their daughter Tanya Weyker.

“When he retired, they would dress up in their leathers and ride all over on his 1971 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead.”

Mr. Ellefson was an ironworker and a lifetime member of Iron Workers Local Union 8. He retired from that demanding job at the age of 55.

Mr. Ellefson enjoyed hunting and fishing in the Pembine area with his buddies from a group they called Campfire One. He spent much of his summers riding four-wheelers and winters snowmobiling with the Vintage Snowmobile Club.

Family members said Mr. Ellefson often returned to his hometown in Minnesota to ice fish, hunt and visit relatives.

A gifted musician, his friends would drag an old piano to their camp in the woods so he could play for them around the campfire.

Mr. Ellefson never missed an opportunity to spend time with his grandchildren, who called him “Bumpa,” including attending every school event, sporting contest or performance.

He is survived by his wife Betty of Saukville; daughter Tanya (Jim) Weyker of Random Lake; and grandchildren Bria and Caleb.

Mr. Ellefson is further survived by his brother Gordon (Shirley) and sisters Barb Housker and Julia Haugtvedt, all of Minnesota; and sister-in-law Eileen Ellefson.

He was preceded in death by his parents; son Jason; brother Tom; and brothers-in-law Ordean and Stanley Morrow.

A celebration of Mr. Ellefson’s life will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 14, at Eernisse Funeral Home, Cedarburg.

A separate service and interment will be held at a later date in Middle River, Minn.
