Richard “Dick” Hugh Forson
Richard “Dick” Hugh Forson, passed away peacefully at home in Deer Lodge, MT early Wednesday morning, February 16, 2022. He was 80 years old.
Dick was the youngest of 6 children born to Alfred and Ruth Forson in Reno, Nevada on May 19, 1941.
Dick grew up in Reno and as a child enjoyed working with and learning from his father on the family farm. He sang in the high school choir and was very proud to be included on the album recorded during his performance with the Western Division All-Conference Choir in 1959. Later in life he was known to always be singing – making those around him smile with his smooth voice and (sometimes silly) songs. After high school, Dick pursued his passion for woodworking and became a Master Carpenter.
In 1964 Dick met the love of his life, Darlene, in a bowling alley in Reno and 6 months later they ran off to Carson City to get married and begin a lifetime of love together. In 1966 Dick and Dar moved with their infant son, Leonard, to the Deer Lodge Valley, where they spent most of their 56+ years together. Dick worked at the Job Corps outside of Anaconda where he started as a Carpentry Instructor and eventually ran the Carpentry Program. After spending a few years back in Reno where he enjoyed competing in and judging carpentry competitions, Dick and Dar returned to Deer Lodge to continue to run the Lovell Ranch raising cattle, and growing grain and alfalfa hay. In the early 1990s, Dick left the ranching industry and went to work for the Deer Lodge School District. He retired in 2004. Dick spent his retirement years doing what he loved – gardening, woodworking projects, and a never ending list of fixing and creating things that “needed to be done”.
Dick was known by all for his humble and kind spirit and his uncanny ability to build absolutely anything. He was a very hard working, gentle man who loved people and always saw the best in everyone. He always had a smile on his face and loved to laugh and joke and have a good time. He was admired by all who knew him for his positivity and strong work ethic.
Dick’s family was the most important part of his life. The life he built with Darlene was a true love story. They were inseparable. His children – Leonard, Deldee and Adele and his grandchildren – Brandon, Austin and Gracie were his pride and joys. He was the absolute best husband, Dad and Papa and is greatly missed already. He left behind a ton of great memories to be shared among everyone who knew him.
Dick is survived by his wife Darlene, son Leonard (Stacey), daughters Deldee Castorena and Adele Forson, grandsons Brandon and Austin Forson, granddaughter Gracie Castorena and sister Martha McCamant.
The family would like to say a special thank you to Kristin, Mandie, Jeannie and Libby from Senior Solutions for helping to take such great care of him through the last part of his journey here on earth.
A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, 2/25 at 11am at Hillcrest Cemetery in Deer Lodge, followed by a come-and-go reception at the family home for anyone who would like to stop by for snacks and memories.
Memorial donations can be sent in Dick’s honor to the charity of the donor’s choice. Personal condolences can be mailed to his home, or shared by visiting www.buttefuneralhome.com. Axelson Funeral and Cremation Services has been privileged to care for Dick and his family.

James Joseph Walrath
We will forever miss the man with the wonderful smile, great sense of humor, kind heart, ever present enthusiasm, and an abundant amount of thoughtfulness. His name was James Joseph Walrath, born February 19, 1951. On that day he joined a family with parents Gilbert and Arlene Walrath and brother Jack in Shelby, Montana. Jim died February 2, 2022 in Missoula from complications of 56 years of diabetes.
After graduating in 1969 Missoula Sentinel High School, he attended the University of Montana. During college at University of Montana he met Christine Elliott. In 1973 they were married and the adventures began. Jim graduated with a degree in computer science. He worked until 1978 for Boeing in Seattle WA, and was able to bring his young family back to Montana in 1978 to work until retirement for Montana Power and later NorthWestern Energy. Soon a daughter, Jessie, appeared and became the focus of the pictures, then their second daughter Natalie Frances (“Fransie”) joined the happy group.
To our joy, Jason Dennee joined the family when he married Fransie in 2009. Jim became a Grandpa in 2010 and his face lit up when he held his granddaughter , Paige, for the first time. He became a Grandpa again in 2015 with the birth of Clay and the joy in his life doubled. He had such a wonderful time playing with his grandkids, finding neat toys and sharing his love of hot wheels and always willing to get on the floor to play. Lots more pictures!!
While in high school, Jim was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, also known as type I diabetes. He was very proactive. Jim was often sought out as a mentor for diabetics. He emphasized that children need to be in charge of their diabetes as much as possible. He felt that camps that taught this for young diabetics were wonderful. This helped him decide to join the Lions Club in Deer Lodge and was a member for over 25 years.
Through the years there were many projects Jim would tackle with the enthused mind of an engineer. He could fix things, rig things, and make things. He loved golf, skiing, hiking, travel, yard work, woodwork and trips to the dump. For some reason he would rescue ironing boards from the dump in the days one was allowed a good rummage.
Jim is survived by his wife, Christine Walrath of Deer Lodge; his daughters Jessica Walrath of Missoula, and Natalie Frances Walrath Dennee and son-in-law Jason Dennee and two grandchildren Paige Dennee and Clay Dennee all of Bozeman; his brother Jack Walrath of Missoula and nephew Patrick Walrath of Missoula. He has numerous cousins who he loved as well and happily counted his friends as family.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Gilbert and Arlene Walrath, his father in law (William Elliott), mother-in-law (Corinne Elliott) and his wife’s Grandmother, Frances Elliott with whom he shared a wicked sense of humor.
We thank all the friends, family members, and medical staff that contributed to his happiness and efforts to stay with us as long as he did. A graveside service will be held in the spring.
Jim’s favorite charities were Juvenile Diabetes Camp: to donate to a Montana Camp go to www.mydiabetesalliance.org/donate, Habitat for Humanity, and Lions or any charity of your choice.
His favorite saying at times like this: “Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened!” We are so happy that this life happened.

Carl Joseph Bauer
Carl Joseph Bauer went to heaven to be with His Lord on January 23, 2022 at the age of 83 in Pueblo, Colorado. Carl was born on January 12, 1939 in Michigan where he lived until he entered the United States Air Force at age 18. He served as an airman flight specialist in the Korean War and was honorably discharged after sustaining a back injury during active duty. He then moved west where he met the love of his life, Jean Ada, in Kanab, Utah. Shortly after, they married and remained together for over 65 years. Settling in the Page, Arizona area, they lived in a modest home nestled in the mesas of North Arizona, raising their four children and serving their community.
Carl was dedicated to serving his community and improving life on the reservation. He worked as a chemical specialist at the Navajo Generating Station (NGS) on the reservation, eventually becoming a train engineer for NGS. He also served as NGS booster president for several years and was an active member of the Elk’s Lodge in Page, AZ. One of his proudest achievements was bringing TV access for the first time to Page and the Navajo Mountain reservation area through his work in forming the Lake Powell Antenna-Vision in the 1970’s. He also served as a Silver Leader for the Commander’s Club for Disabled Veterans and was a life long member of the NRA. He retired from the Salt River Project/NGS after 24 years of service, and eventually, he and Jean moved to be closer to their children in Montana and Colorado.
Carl was a quiet man with firm convictions—the strength and foundation for his family. He had many talents especially in construction. Mostly, he enjoyed wood working and vintage car restoration and competition. He also loved oil painting and playing the accordion—especially at church. His life was a tapestry that though now complete, reflects the love for family, God, and demonstrated his kindness, gentleness, and thoughtful demeanor. His family greatly mourns his being gone, but rejoices greatly in having him as a father, grandfather, husband, and great-grandfather who we in Christ will see in Eternity. Carl is survived by his wife Jean Ada, sons Eric, Leonard, and Faron, daughter Terrie, fourteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Nancy Taylor Farel
August 7, 1945–January 9, 2022
Nancy Elizabeth Taylor Farel of Boulder died on Jan. 9, 2022 after an eight-year battle with Alzheimer’s. She was 76.
Nancy was born on Aug. 7, 1945 in Bozeman, Montana and adopted at birth by Ethleen Muriel (Ryan) Taylor and William Richard Taylor.
A very loved only child, she was raised in Anaconda, Billings and Deer Lodge, Mont., where her father served as an attorney and district judge. Nancy enjoyed horseback riding growing up and as her Alzheimer’s progressed told many stories about her youthful adventures with horses.
After graduating from Powell County High School in 1963, she went to the University of Colorado Boulder, where she graduated in 1967 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a teaching certificate. She was a talented artist, particularly in watercolor and pottery, and enjoyed her time as a student art teacher at Casey Junior High School and Baseline Junior High School.
She met the love of her life, Charles A. Farel, in January 1969, on a blind date at a dinner party orchestrated by their respective bosses (who were married to one another). It was truly love at first sight and after a six-month courtship, Nancy and Charlie married at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Boulder on July 12, 1969.
They welcomed their daughter Alexis (Lexie) Elizabeth Farel on Oct. 21, 1973. A few years later, Charlie had the good fortune to be given a one-year overseas assignment with IBM in Southampton, England. While living there, they traveled extensively in Europe, where Nancy collected the prized antique glass citrus reamers she proudly displayed on her kitchen wall.
When Lexie was young, Nancy enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom, school-homeroom mom, Girl Scout troop leader, dance mom and swim team mom. She and Charlie were incredibly supportive parents and attended every one of Lexie’s competitions and activities.
In 1982, Nancy started a color consulting and image styling business, which evolved into Nancy Taylor Farel and Associates. It was a perfect career that maximized all her strengths: a keen eye for color, incredible artistic style and her desire to help people feel great and look their best.
She had a tremendous impact on the clients and businesses that she worked with, creating individual color palettes based on each one’s unique coloring and teaching them how best to use color ourselves (aka The Talk). She also choreographed fabulous fashion shows, hosted private shopping events with stores, worked in many, many closets, shopped endlessly for her clients and selected the perfect eyeglasses for all. People came from all over the world to work with her.
Nancy served as a board member of Fashion Group International, which took her on travels across the U.S., and to Australia, London, and France. She was not only an incredibly talented stylist, but also became life-long friends with many of her clients. You could tell who she worked with because they were always the best dressed in the room.
Nancy, a talented chef, and Charlie, a fantastic bartender, loved entertaining friends and Charlie’s StorageTek business associates at their stunning home. Together, they traveled the world, collected beautiful contemporary art, enjoyed opera performances, ballroom danced the nights away and shared a deep and loving relationship until their love story was cut short when Charlie passed unexpectedly in 2000.
Nancy was an incredible grandma to her two grandsons, who named her Nano. She was fully devoted and extremely proud of the boys, enjoying time with them each and every day. She never missed an opportunity to be with them and, just as she and Charlie had with Lexie, attended every school event, hockey game, swim meet and water polo game. An energetic and loving grandma, she enjoyed many adventures and travels with Lexie and Linus and the boys.
Despite the challenges Nancy faced, she always remained positive and lived life with zest. She was a vibrant, caring, humorous, engaging and beautiful person and she will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her daughter Alexis (Lexie) Wang, son-in-law Linus Wang, and beloved grandsons Charlie and Jamie Wang, all of Boulder.
She was preceded in death by her husband, mother and father.
M.P. Murphy and Associates are handling local arrangements. A celebration of life will be held at a later date due to the COVID pandemic.
Contributions may be made to to Dress for Success Denver at denver.dressforsuccess.org or TGTHR (formerly Attention Homes) at tgthr.org, two organizations Nancy supported.
Guy Frank Stoner
Guy Frank Stoner, age 76, of Elliston, Montana, passed away on January 19, 2022. He had been in failing health for quite a while with a lot of injuries over the years. His body said, “I’ve had enough of this, please let me rest in peace without pain, so I can hunt and fish again.”
Guy was born on July 23, 1945 in Helena, Montana to Frank and Edith Stoner. He lived his whole life in the Sixth Ward until he moved to Elliston. On August 11, 1967 he married his soulmate, Mary Jo Miller, also from the Sixth Ward. They had a lot of fun and adventures in all those 54 1/2 years. They began their little family with their son Steven in 1968 and then their daughter Mikal in 1969.
Guy worked his whole life. Starting very young, with a paper route, a route that his children eventually had as well. Then his other jobs were working at his brother, Jack Smith‘s gas station, and many other gas stations. He also worked for Associated Foods as a teenager and worked at the Anaconda company where he ultimately quit to work for many construction contractors. In 1976, he started a concrete forming business, Stoner Concrete Forming. In 1987, they bought the bar in Elliston,MT, Stoner’s Last Chance Saloon.
He tried bartending, but said “this is not for me“and went back to pouring concrete walls. Guy and Mary Jo worked full-time at their day-jobs and also ran the bar with the help of a lot of people. Oh boy, that bar “Stoner’s” has a lot of mostly good memories over the years. They made friends with a lot of good people who were faithful customers to them.
Despite only having a high school education, Guy was a lifelong successful serial entrepreneur with a natural gift for marketing. These are some of the things he started at the bar, so they could make it through the slow times. There was a lovely legs contest following the Elliston VFD poker run; a fishing derby; a couple of naughty nighty parties; and the Duck Races for a few years which had the Tim Duck derby, the Beakness, and the Bilmont. Every year in February there was a chili cookoff, and the fun pool league with a big party at the end of the season.
He also started the famous Big Foot Hunt, every March, with a huge bonfire on their property. Hunters could purchase a license to hunt big foot, 2 wild Rainers, and many balloons for prizes, all while wading through snow or sometimes mud. Guy’s marketing for the Big Foot hunt was amazing, he would place ads in the newspaper about Bigfoot sightings and would visit places with Bigfoot and the wild Rainers which ended up as an article in the Helena IR. All these parties were supported with lots of help from many good friends with tons of memories and stories.
Guy Stoner loved the outdoors, especially to hunt, fish, ride dirt bikes, snowmobiles, and drag racing in his ‘34 coup. His nickname in the Sixth Ward was “fish” given to him for his love of fishing. He hunted in a lot of places in Montana.
Guy was preceded in death by his mother and father, Frank and Edie; in-laws, Willie and Hazel Miller; brother, Jack Smith; sister and brother-in-laws, Wanda Smith, Maggie Wooten, Carol Finch, Johnny Finch, Carole Miller; and nephew, Terry Finch.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Jo; son, Steve and partner Teena of Boise, ID; daughter, Mikal (retired Army Colonel) and son-in-law, Stuart Tyner of Great Falls, VA; grandchildren, Devon Lonigro of Elliston, Joshua and Nathan Tyner of VA; brother-in-law Jimmy Miller, sister-in-law, Joyce Smith, both of Helena.
Nieces and nephews, Deb Smith, Cindy (Gary) Eccleston, Brett (Sharon) Smith, Bud (Bobbie) Wooten, Kris Wooten, Robin (Bud) Biskis, Cindy (Joel) Platts, John Finch, Jason (Megan) Miller; and numerous cousins. Of special note, is the triad of cousins, from the Sixth Ward, Jim “Turtle” Backstrom and Tom “Juicy” Juhl, whose many adventures together with Guy could fill novels.
No services will be held at this time, however there will be a celebration of life this summer. Please watch for the notices and be prepared to share your many stories.
We also want to thank the staff and doctors on the second floor of St. Peter’s for their kind caring of Guy.
