Chris Duggan, 59, of Montrose, Colo., passed away peace-
fully April 2, 2017, with his family by his side at Montrose
Memorial Hospital.
Chris was born June 21, 1957, in Salem, Ore., to Jack and
Nadine (Hurt) Duggan where he joined his sisters Sandra and
Kathleen.
Around the age of 13, the family moved to Joseph, Ore.,
where he attended school and met the love of his life and many
life-long friends.
Chris enjoyed logging with his dad and son, Jason, more
than anything. What stories he could tell, about everything
from helicopters in Joseph Canyon to the Redwoods of Cali-
fornia or the steep mountains of Colorado. It was his passion.
Even in the end, he had a smile when a logging story was
remembered.
Chris is survived by his wife Koni and dog Stormi of Mon-
trose; children Jeremy (Heather) Brown of Battle Ground,
Wash., Mandy (Kevin Rogers) Duggan of Battle Ground, Ja-
son (Lynann) Duggan of Lewiston, Idaho, and Kylee (Gunner)
Scott of Battle Ground.
He was especially proud of his nine grandchildren and en-
joyed watching them grow. He is also survived by his sisters
Sandra (Irvin) Tucker of Gates, Ore., and Kathleen (James)
Bush of Hermiston, Ore., Aunt Ruth Giroux of Medford, Ore.,
nephew Brody (Virginia) Tucker of Aumsville, Ore, and niece
Jacki (George) Frey of Salem, Ore. and a great niece and
nephew. Chris was preceded in death by his mother and father
and Uncle Joe Giroux.
Per Chris’ wishes, no service will be held. The family will
be holding a spreading of ashes this summer in Oregon in one
of his favorite canyons.

James Arthur Maasdam, 76, of Enterprise, died from injuries
sustained in a fall April 3, 2017, with his family by his side.
Jim was born April 27,1940, in Algona, Iowa, to the late Ar-
thur and Lillian Maasdam. At age 9, he moved with his family
to Wallowa County.
Jim graduated from Enterprise High School in 1958 and
joined the U.S. Air Force. Jim returned to Enterprise and mar-
ried his wife of 55 years, Carolyn Prince.
He worked the family farm and various jobs until going to
work for Harold Jensen as a self-taught logging truck mechanic
for 14 years. He owned Ag Power & Equipment for seven long
years before deciding to prove that he could drive truck better
than all the guys he’d been listening to for years. However, he
bought a Kenworth despite telling his kids their entire lives that
Peterbilt’s were the only truck to drive.
No matter the make, Jim could drive anything and anywhere.
Family vacations driving across the country with four kids were
the norm, and Jim had the stories to prove it. Thankfully all
the kids were always incredibly well behaved and Carolyn is
a saint.
Jim’s sense of humor was his most defi ning quality. If you’ve
met Jim, you’ve been teased by Jim. His nine grandchildren
and two great-grandchildren know this very well. Although he
would say he didn’t see anything grand about them, they were
the joy of his life and that was obvious to all.
Jim’s love of the Wallowa Valley and his family is well-doc-
umented in the photos he has taken throughout the years. He
could tell you where every picture was taken and what was
happening at the time. He was sure that he had seen more of
Wallowa County than maybe anyone else ever has.
His faith was important to Jim, and it showed in the ser-
vice he provided to his church and his community. His parents
helped found Grace Lutheran Church and Jim has helped clean,
paint, build, mow and trim every inch of it. He has served as
Treasurer and president for many years and led many lay ser-
vices.
Jim was a quietly generous man. The Community Connec-
tion Food Bank has been the benefi ciary of his garden bounty
for many years. He donated logs to the EHS FFA to raise money
to attend the National Convention, and he was a longtime sup-
porter of the 4-H and FFA Fat Stock Sale.
Jim, in his faith, often said “I’m not afraid to die; I’m just
afraid of how I might die.” We are all sure he went on his terms.
Jim is survived by his wife Carolyn; brother Jerry (Sharon)
Maasdam, Hillsboro, Ore.; sister Jean (Mike) Claymore, Boise,
Idaho; sister Janice Foster, Boise; son Kane (Nancy) Maasdam,
Enterprise; son Mark (Joni) Maasdam, Enterprise; daughter
Kody Johnson, Enterprise; daughter Mary Barnett, Boise; nine
grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and numerous nieces
and nephews.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Art & Lillian
Maasdam and his in-laws, James & Iva Prince.
In lieu of fl owers, donations may be made to the Enterprise
Cemetery District, 301 SE 6th St., Enterprise, OR 97828.
