    !Obituary:
    Lyle Dale Chrisman, age 92, passed away July 19, 2003 in Beaverton. He is survived by his children, Leon Chrisman of Sunnyvale, Calif., Carol Ganzer-Gimbolo of Medford, and Gayle Furlow-Cole of Portland; grandchildren Lonnie Chrisman, Lucinda Chrisman, Eric Bell, Sean Bell, Filip Bryant Furlow and Michael Furlow; nine great grandchildren; sisters Velma Limbeck of Scio and Gladys Porter of Stayton, and brother Leroy Chrisman of Stayton; ex-wives Blanche Chrisman of Stayton and Rosie Chrisman.

    Lyle was a native of Scio, born Nov 5, 1910 to George Nelson and Pearl (Baker) Chrisman, and lived within Oregon his entire life. As a logger, truck driver, farmer, welder, mechanic, forestfire fighter, ranch foreman, and avid hunter, he loved life and worked intensely. Known affectionately as the "Tough Old Bird", he had an enigmatic combination of toughness and quick-fistedness with sensitivity, kindness, and a painfully honest personality. As a logger, he was considered a bit of a visionary in his time. He had a real love and respect for the forest and believed in selective cutting and clean logging practices. He spent his retirement in Philomath and Salem, and for the past two years in care facilities in Portland and Beaverton. A figure of respect and admiration, he deeply touched the lives of family and friends and will be missed.

    Notes:
    From his Obituary (Source uncertain). Appeared on September 29, 1926:

    Abner C. Chrisman was born near Jamestown, Indiana, January, 14, 1836; passed away at the home of his son, W.E. Chrisman, in Lebanon, Oregon, September 27, 1926, aged 90 years, 8 months and 13 days.
    He came with his parents to Oregon in 1853. They settled near Brooks, Marion County, where they lived for about nine years, moving about 1862 to a farm between Scio and Stayton, where Mr. Chrisman lived until about 1923.
    He served in the Cayuse Indian was in 1855-6 and had many narrow escapes and thrilling experiences.
    He later spent a few years mining in California and was fairly successful.
    In 1964 he married Miss Minerva Neal at Salem, Oregon. Five sons and one daughter were born to this union. His wife and daughter preceded him in death, his daughter, Mrs. Milton Morgan, passing away at Ione [Morrow Co., OR] in 1892, his wife September 7, 1909.

    Mr. Chrisman is said to have enjoyed excellent health until a few months ago, when he fell, breaking a limb, which failed to knit and caused him much pain, being the direct cause of his death.
    He is survived by five sons, W.E. of Lebanon, George of Scio, Elias, of Tonasket, Washington, and Monroe and Elday of Ajalune, Washington.
    Funeral services will be conducted Friday [Oct 1] at 2 p.m. at the Christian church, at Stayton. Interment will be at the cemetery at Kingston.

    ------------

    [As told to me by grandson Lyle Chrisman]: During the first year after getting married, he lived on an island in the Santiam river. He had a dog named Sank. To get from the island to and from shore, he would throw Sank a rope tied to a boat, and Sank would swim across the river with the rope in his mouth, pulling the boat across. He lived on that island for about one year. Later in life, this same dog Sank was trained to catch hogs and hold them down by their ears (during slatter time, etc) until a person could catch up.
