Harry J. 'Toby' Kugler

RONAN - Harry J. "Toby" Kugler passed away Friday, Nov. 17, 2000, at St. Luke's Extended Care Facility in Ronan. He was 93 years old.

He was born Aug. 6, 1907, in Richland County, N.D., to Charles and Anna (Washtok) Kugler, one of 11 children. He grew up on a farm south of Lidgerwood, N.D. Cattle and horses were always an important part of his life.

After the Great Depression, he started a Ford dealership with his friend and brother-in-law Lee Swanson. He began raising Hereford cattle as a hobby and continued to buy and sell cattle until he was 90 with Thursday trips to the auction in Missoula with his daughter-in-law Rosemary.

Hunting with his horses and friends was the highlight of his life. Fishing in Westport, Wash., and Alaska was the guy thing to do, and bowling all over Montana with a few trips to the national competition with friends were cherished memories.

In 1931 he married Ruth Bullis. He had two sons from that marriage, Ward D. Kugler (Rosemary) of Charlo and Ralph E. Kugler (Sharon) of Princeton, Minn.

In 1953 he moved west to Missoula and worked for H.O. Bell Ford. He married Harriet "Sue" McCarney in Missoula and in 1955 moved to Ronan to work for Bob Hanson's Ford Motor dealership.

Always a promoter and businessman, he and Sue built several houses and started the Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes in Ronan in 1960. This has been a real addition to the community and is still an important part of recreation in the valley.

Harry is survived by his wife of 46 years, Suzie Kugler; sons Ward and Ralph; special family Allan and Peggy Sloan; and many grandchildren, stepgrandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Harry was preceded in death by nine brothers and sisters, parents Charles and Anna and stepson Skip McCarney.

Services will be 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 21, at Ronan Methodist Church. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery.

Pallbearers are Wade Oberg, Ron Foster, Dusty Sloan, Troy Benson, Ken Esterby and Bob White.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Breadbasket to feed the hungry, to summer recreation programs or to the Boys and Girls Club to help the children, all important concerns of Harry.

Harry always said a man's worth was measured by friends, not money. Hey pardner, I'll really miss you.

Shrider's Mortuary of Ronan is assisting the family with arrangements.
