Pachpe, Elton James: Walking On

Wapato, Washington

Funeral services were held for ELTON JAMES PACHPE, 27, on August 9, at the Wapato Longhouse. Interment followed at Union Gap Cemetery. Elton was born February 1, 1984. He passed away August 5, 2011.
   
Elton sometimes had problems with his health but had goals he had met. In high school, he couldn’t play sports for health reasons, but he wanted a letterman’s jacket and he earned one by being the manager of the equipment for the team. He earned his diploma from Wapato High School. He was a dealer at the Yakama Legends Casino. Although doctors told him that he probably could not have children, he and his wife had three sons and one on the way. He set his goals and achieved them. One of his best times was when he volunteered at Wapato Head Start, helping to teach the children, who called him Teacher Ya Ya. He also enjoyed watching wrestling.
