Christopher Scott Ewer

October 6, 1947 — December 14, 2023

Christopher Scott Ewer of Albuquerque, NM passed away peacefully on December 14, 2023.  Chris was born October 6, 1947 in Glendale, CA and spent his childhood years in Pacific Grove, CA graduating from Pacific Grove High School in 1965. 

He had many jobs during his high school years to include working on fishing boats, in a radiator shop, and as a manager at a Sambo’s restaurant. He also was in the Navy ROTC during high school and upon graduation enlisted in the Navy.  He was a valiant Vietnam Veteran, serving as a mine man specializing in underwater weapons.  Chris was stationed in Japan for many years and then in Guam where he suffered from an accidental gun shot wound that left him paralyzed.  He was medically discharged from the Navy in 1976.  

Chris lived 47 years as a wheelchair user and enjoyed hunting, fishing and shooting competitively. He earned many awards in shotgun, pistol and rifle competitions. His passion was shotgun sports. As an avid member of the Albuquerque Trap Club, he mentored beginning shooters and helped with the youth shooting program.  Chris was also an active member of the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). He held many board positions and also served as a national director. He also served as sports director, where he worked tirelessly to organize wheelchair sporting events and mentor other veterans in many sports.  He participated in the Veteran’s Wheelchair Games in archery, shotgun, air rifle and ping pong.  Chris’ hobby later in life was beekeeping. He enjoyed educating people about bees and the important role they play in the environment. He was a respected member of the beekeeping community, but the thing he enjoyed most was selling honey and talking to all the people he would meet.  

Chris is preceded in death by his parents Henry B. Ewer and Ottilie V. Ewer also his stepson Eric J. Williams.
