Samuel Feltis, Portland homicide victim, was dedicated father, lifelong basketball fan

Samuel Feltis was born in Tucson, Arizona, according to an obituary, and was a dedicated father to his young son Sammy. A lifelong basketball fan, he could often be found shooting hoops or rooting for his favorite team, the Utah Jazz.

“Perhaps as a result of a childhood dream to be a paleontologist, Sam loved the outdoors and spending time in nature,” the obituary read. “He was always in awe of the natural wonders around him.”

About six months after he was fatally shot, Feltis, 31, was buried near Glacier National Park, according to a Facebook post from his mother.

Family and friends declined to comment or didn’t return calls and messages. Police said they had no updates on his killing.
