Carl Goble

Dayton — Carl Elias Goble passed away peacefully late in the evening on Tuesday, Aug. 15, surrounded by his loving family.

Carl was born Oct. 24, 1927 in Harrison, Montana, to Harold and Elizabeth Goble. He attended Deer Lodge Elementary and Powell County High School. After graduating, Carl enlisted in the Marines where he served in Guam during World War II. Returning from the war he attended Western Montana College in Dillon playing semi-pro baseball and meeting his loving wife and mother to his seven children, Rose Mary Tyro. They married Feb. 1, 1951.

Carl and his growing family moved from Spearfish, South Dakota, to Hungry Horse where he took a position at Anaconda Aluminum, a job that kept his family in the Flathead Valley for approximately 30 years until his retirement at the age of 55 where he then settled in Eureka and enjoyed a life as a snowbird, campground host, professional tinkerer, and fun-loving grumpa.

Carl was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed camping, fishing and boating. Whether you were Wildcat or a Bulldog you could find Carl and Rose in the stands supporting the local sports teams.
