Bug and Sharon spent 65 years married. They made their home in Emida, and they were never apart. Bug worked in the woods all his life, as a sawyer, equipment operator, and truck driver.

Bug and Sharon had a cattle and horse ranch for 30 years. Bug was an avid horseback rider, who loved his dogs, fishing, and hunting. He would help anyone who needed helping. He could fill up a room with his jolly laugh. Bug and Sharon were always doing something or going somewhere with their beloved dog “Susie”.

After retirement, Bug worked part time driving a dump truck for Bob Short, his nephew. Bug and Sharon rode their 4-wheeler and hit all the yard sales in the summer months. Bug loved to gamble, and they spent lots of time at one of the casinos in the area.

Also surviving are his grandchildren, Sarah Bailey, of St. Maries, Jasen (Mandy) Quincy of Emida, Jake (Katie) Lockard of St. Maries, seven great grandchildren, one great-great granddaughter and many nieces and nephews.
