Jerry Lee Jacobson
Jerry Lee Jacobson, 82, passed away surrounded by his family in Great Falls, Montana on Sunday, April 7, 2019.
Jerry was born in Glasgow, Montana to Charles and Loretta (Christenson) Jacobson on May 27, 1936. He attended school in Glasgow and following graduation joined the Navy in 1955. After returning home he met Dora Lou Scanson and married her on January 21, 1961. They were blessed with 58 wonderful years together and two children, Brett and Sonda.
After marriage they both attended Northern Montana College where Jerry received his teaching degree. He taught school in Terry and Miles City, Montana for several years then became an FBI agent in 1969. In 1974 he transferred to the US Forest Service as a Special Agent, which took the family to Idaho through 1979, Colorado through 1985, and teaching at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia through 1987. They returned to Montana where Jerry retired out of Missoula in 1994, after which he and Dora Lou relocated for the final time back home to their property north of Glasgow.
In the fall of 1998 Jerry was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome which kept him hospitalized for almost two years. Dora Lou stayed in a recliner next to his bed the entire time. He miraculously survived and later wrote a book “My Wake-Up Call” which tells the battle of his recovery.
Jerry loved spending time with family and was always ready to help anyone in need. He was very active in Valley County with law enforcement training, and was very knowledgeable in installing audio equipment for the museum and his church. He enjoyed hunting and was an avid reader and photographer. While traveling to many areas in Montana Jerry created an extensive display of scenic photos, the majority of which have since been published into books. He was honored by the Montana Historical Society for some of his work.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, his cousin and best friend Charles McVee who was like a brother to him, his brother-in-law Esten Scanson, and several very special aunts, uncles and cousins.
He is survived by his wife Dora Lou, son Brett, daughter Sonda, grandchildren Lenny, Britni, Seth, Chelsea and Nicole, great grandchildren Adam, Eileen, Tucker and Dulcie, the McVee, Myhre and Scanson families, and many dear friends and extended family across the nation.
A Celebration of Life will be held at First Baptist Church in Glasgow on Saturday May 25, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. with private burial at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations in Jerry’s name be made to the Valley County Historical Society, Pioneer Museum, in Glasgow.

Terry "T.Y." Edward Young
Terry “T.Y.” Edward Young
Terry “T.Y.” Edward Young died peacefully the morning of March 22nd, 2019, at his home in Glasgow, 13 days after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Though his illness was sudden and shocking, his struggle was mercifully short and with minimal pain. He was 76 years old.
Terry was born August 11th, 1942, in Tulsa, Oklahoma to parents William and Katherine. Along with younger brothers Garry and Dee and older sister Martha, the family moved around the country, finally settling in Wagener, South Carolina. Terry graduated from Wagener High School in 1960 where he excelled as an athlete in baseball, basketball, and football. He was a popular student; known for his famously outgoing personality.
After high school, he attended Oklahoma University in Norman, Oklahoma, where he played football as a Sooner for 2 years. Fandom for his alma-mater remained a lifelong passion. Terry left college to work on the pipeline with his father.
Terry worked through his pipeline career as a welder helper, pipefitter, and welder. In his later years he was a pipeline inspector. He was a lifelong member of Pipeliners Union 798 and worked in nearly every state, including Alaska.
Terry’s job brought him to the Montana Hi-Line where he met the love of his life Debra. They married and Debra traveled around the country with him, having a family of 4 boys and 1 girl along the way. They settled for a few years in Lakeport, California, where Debra held together the household while Terry traveled to work.
In October 1985 Terry traded in the pipeline lifestyle for a more stable small-town raising of his growing family. He and Deb moved back north to Glasgow, Montana, where they found the support of family, friends, and the community.
In 1987 Terry went to work at Gordon’s foods, a local grocery store, where he would stay until 1998. There he got to know just about everyone in town and they got introduced to his friendly conversation, sharp Carolina accent, and famous smile.
Terry and his family faced many struggles together over the years, supporting his son during a battle with childhood cancer, and then his wife as she gradually lost all her vision. In their older years Deb would come to rely on him significantly through her several health challenges. He loved her dearly and was her caretaker without complaint.
Though he was an athlete in his youth, Terry didn’t push his own children into sports. However, he was always an enthusiastic supporter of any and all interests they pursued, be it art, music, hunting, fishing, or motorsports, and was very proud of all his children. He was an ardent supporter of Glasgow Scottie athletics and athletes, often making a round of phone calls to encourage players and coaches the night before a game. When it came to his niece and nephew, he was their #1 fan. His support extended further as his family grew and he was able to share in the interests of his grandchildren and in-laws. He loved spending time with his young granddaughter Kamry and hearing about her many exciting activities.
He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing with his children and friends. One of his truest joys was ice fishing at Nelson reservoir, spinning yarns at Murph’s, and having a few beers.
Terry was a master joke and story-teller who often held court with a tale from back in the day or made his opinion known on a variety of subjects. He was a fantastic music fan and loved to reminisce about the good old days of rock and roll or “really good country and western”. There wasn’t a close friend of his or his children that didn’t know the story of Bo Diddley or hadn’t seen him Hambone.
In 1998, with his oldest kids leaving high school, Terry returned to the pipeline. It was a testament to his incredible work ethic that he continued traveling and working to support his family until the age of 72, when his wife and children insisted he retire, after a health scare and stroke.
In retirement Terry continued to help where he could in the community. He volunteered for the Council on Aging, and Meals on Wheels. He drove the Valley County Transit bus and spent a lot of time with Glasgow’s senior citizens. He was happy spending time with friends and making his way around town - stopping to talk to everyone he knew along the way. He enjoyed traveling with Deb whenever they could to see their children and their families.
Terry truly was one-of-a-kind, and he will be dearly missed. We know he’ll be watching over us all and looking down from time to time to ask, “What’s your twenty?”
Terry was preceded in death by his daughter Terry Anne, son Timothy, sister Martha Kay Ellsworth, nephew Bill Young, parents William and Katherine Young, brother-in-law Robert Stenswick, and sister-in-law Ramona Stenswick.
Terry is survived by his wife Debra; his sons Travis (Hollie) Young, Trent (Tara) Young, and Todd (Emily) Young; his children from a first marriage - Kimberly (Tony) Wechter and daughter Anna and son Michael Young, and Dana (Darlene) Young - all of South Carolina; brother Garry (LaMyra) Young; nephew Tyler Young; brother Dee (Judy) Young; sister-in-law Mary (Mitch) Hughes; niece Karissa (Dom) Keenan; nephew Dylan Hughes (Jami Johnson); brother-in-law Jack Stenswick; granddaughter Kamry Young; grandson Cayden Sieler; grandson Julian (Jylisa) Butcher; great-granddaughter Finley Rose Butcher and grandson Trystan Butcher.
Funeral Services for Terry will be 2:00 p.m. Friday, March 29, 2019 at the Valley Event Center in Glasgow, Montana with Pastor Bonnie Novak officiating. Burial will follow in the Highland Cemetery in Glasgow. A reception will be at the Elks following services.

Dr. Jim "Kicker" Curtis
Preceded in death by Jesus of Nazareth and Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch, Dr. Jim “Kicker” Curtis died suddenly of a heart attack on Thursday, 21 March 2019. Some know him as Jim, while others shout out Kicker, Doc, Dad(dy), Grandpa, Poppa Doc and, among a select few, dirty rotten S.O.B.
Born John James Curtis on 7 February 1943 to John Lorenzo and Grace Caroline Pearce Curtis in Great Falls, Montana, Jim spent his early days kicking every which way and, thus, earned his lifelong moniker, Kicker, granted by his older, adoring sister Barbara Ann. Much to his entire Griz family’s disappointment, Kicker became a Bobcat (Montana State University) and, causing his Husky daughter further disappointment, completed his degree in veterinary medicine at Wazzu (Washington State University) in 1967. Post-degree, Kicker was gallantly drafted into the Army as Captain Curtis, and enjoyed the barrack amenities at several stateside stops before launching on his international adventure to South Korea (8th Army-Korea), where he served as veterinarian to the sentry dog units and met the greatest love of his life, military brat Gaelen Elizabeth Schell. Kicker easily lured Gaelen to the wide open spaces of central and, later, eastern Montana. The hope-filled couple married in 1970 and moved to Malta to establish the Phillips County Veterinary Clinic and his title as “Doc,” and also to wrangle cattle, sheep, horses, haying equipment, each other and three children, Rieder William Curtis, David Lorenzo Curtis, and Katherine Jean Curtis.
At his heart, Kicker was a renaissance cowboy, captivated by history, art, genealogy, geology, anthropology, sociology, theology, music, poetry and the stars while maintaining expertise in biology and animal science, and proficiency in mending harness. Consequently, he could, and did, talk with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Of further consequence, Kicker made lifelong and dear friends at each twist and turn on his journey. Kicker devoted himself to many community organizations and events. While much of the early years were focused on the Stockman Bar and the Milk River Wagon Train, the balance eventually tipped in favor of the Montana Veterinary Association (Past President), Freemasons (Past Worshipful Master), York Rite, Algeria Shrine (Past Potentate), Order of the Eastern Star (Past Worthy Patron), Malta Lutheran Church, his recovery (1989), and his family.
Kicker is survived by his wise sister Barbara, his courageous wife Gaelen, his competent to semi-competent children Rieder, David, and Katherine “Katie,” his Landusky-loving grandchildren Sydian and Rowan (Rieder and Karen), Daphne (David and Penelope), Jonah, Lee, Vida, Daniyah and Deayjah (Katherine and Aaron), and his long-loved nieces and nephews Jean, Karen, Keith, and Stephen (Barbara and Larry). What also lives on from our Kicker, our Doc, our Dad, our friend, and our partner: his love and compassion, his jokes and wit, his work and wrecks, and the genuine joy and hope that gleamed from his beautiful brown eyes. A river of tears wider than the Missouri follows his unexpected death, and is borne of the boundless love for you and me that he held in his heart.
Masonic rites, the retiring of his Shrine Fez, and your memories will be shared at 7 p.m. on Thursday, 28 March at Kirkwood Funeral Home. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, 29 March at the Malta Lutheran Church with luncheon served. Burial rites will follow on the Curtis family property in Landusky. All are welcome. Condolences for the family may be left at www.kirkwoodfuneralhome.com
In lieu of flowers, please send your jewels and cash dollars in memory of Algeria Shrine Past Potentate John James Curtis to the Shriners Hospitals for Children by mail at Attn: Office of Development, 2900 N. Rocky Point Dr, Tampa, FL 33607, or online at https://donate.lovetotherescue.org.
Although we do not have a last request from Doc, or Jim, or Kicker, or whatever name you might know him by, we believe he would enjoy one everlasting guffaw: So, in his honor, please attempt to eat a banana. Because once you peel the banana and throw out the bone, well, the joke is on you and his love is in your laugh.
