Genalgo (Gene) Charles Alsberg

I passed from a wide assortment of ailments on Monday, November 24, 2014. My choice was not to have a funeral as those who knew me would understand.

My life began in Wishek, North Dakota born to Charles Frederick and Ella Alsberg (Reick), wonderful parents, on August 31, 1932. It was the Golden Era of "Children should be seen and not heard" and my sister Betty Clara (Jerry) Adams and brother John Gordon (Linda) Alsberg often joked about this. After graduation from Nashua Montana High (“Go Porcupines”) school in 1940, I took on several interesting employment opportunities including National Guards and United Building Center which took me from Nashua Montana to Plentywood Montana to Winona Minnesota and eventually starting my own Builders Supply in Billings Montana while residing in Laurel Montana.

I met my wife of 42 years Jacqueline (Hughes) while I was working in Glasgow, Montana getting married in a double wedding with Jacqueline’s older brother Bud (Geane) Hughes in 1951. What a wonderful ceremony. With the help of this lavish salary I raised four wonderful children Julie (Harley) Kleppen of Plentywood Montana, Charles (Robyn) of Neshkoro Wisconsin, Bryan (Melisa) of Atlanta Georgia, and Jeff (Simone) of Glasgow Montana. All successful and very close - my greatest accomplishment.

During my last few years I focused on my lifetime hobbies including auto restoration, fishing, hunting, gardening, traveling and simply having a wonderful yard at my cabin in Fort Peck, Montana. Unfortunately the last two years my health began to fail and I ended up for a short stay in Prairie Ridge (wonderful staff and people) to Nemont Manor and eventually to Valley View where I was very lucky to enjoy a top notch friendly staff and cared for by some of the finest doctors from Billings and Glasgow. A special recognition to the very caring nursing staff of Francis Mahon Hospital and Valley View. A tremendous thanks to all of you for making my life longer and my last days comfortable.

Again I enjoyed my life and want to thank some of those that made this possible. Topping the list is family and close survivors, the most important, my daughter Julie supported by her husband Harley who was with me to the end; my son Jeff & his caring wife Simone who always was there to tend to all my needs, and my sons Charles (Robyn) and Bryan (Melisa) who cared for me during my visits giving me tremendous support. Thanks again for always being there.

Surviving is my brother Gordon and his wife Linda of Kalispell Montana, deceased sister Betty and her husband Jerry of Augusta, Georgia. One mistake was not mending fences with my brother and sister for this I apologize. Surviving besides my four children are 8 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren living in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Montana, Washington, and California. I am so very proud of each and every one of you!

I was blessed almost every morning for the great meal and wonderful company at Nickel Bills. What a truly great start to my days especially during my many struggles.

I always tried to give new meaning to the word "friend". Trying my hardest to be friendly, courteous, and hope you took my sharp wit with a smile. Thanks to my many wonderful friends especially Jake of Havre. I don't know what I would have done, living alone my last years, without all of your company and enjoyment.

I've had a wonderful life and thank you to all who made it so.
Love, Gene

He worked his way through college which was during the worst of the big depression. That fall he started working for the Montana Extension Service. Robert worked as an Assistant County Agent until he went into military service. He was discharged in 1946.

While he was working in Culbertson he met Eunice Shipstead who was teaching school there. They were married just after Pearl Harbor on December 20, 1941.

After his discharge from the Air Force he was County Extension Agent in Valley County for a year. In the spring of 1947 he started farming until he sold the farm to his sons Ronald and Glenn in 1974. While farming he served on many boards and committees. Among them were he taught Veterans for 4 years, County ASC Committee for 10 years, and School Board, etc.

After selling the farm Bob and Eunice did a lot of traveling, both in the United States and around the world. They owned a home in Mesa, Arizona and a house on Poverty Ridge at Fort Peck. They enjoyed the southern winters and the northern summers.

Robert is survived by his sons Ronald Rorvig and Glenn Rorvig, a sister Martha Halverson, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
