Edward Gottlieb Gaub, age 91, passed away August 18, 2019 at the Prairie Community Nursing Home in Terry, Montana.
Eddie was born June 4, 1928 in Marsh, Montana to Gottlieb G. and Magdalena Hein Gaub. Brothers Ervin and Miles and sisters Melisena, Ruth, Marion, Edith, Dalyce and Jeanette completed the family.
After graduating from high school, he taught at the Bassert School for one year, and then went into the service. When he came back from the Army, he returned to school under the GI bill to study bookkeeping and accounting. He worked for an accounting firm for a few years, and in 1959 went into business for himself. Eddie continued to do accounting and taxes into his 80’s.
In 1961 he married Dolly Grainger Pfiefle and gained a step-son Gary Pfiefle.
Eddie had many hobbies. He restored and collected many antique cars and loved driving them and showing them off. He loved photography and took thousands of pictures; his favorites being clouds, sunsets and the Calypso Trail. Prairie County and family history was very special to him and nothing tickled him more than a good joke or passing out candy.
Volunteering and working at the Prairie County Museum was always important and Ed spent many hours there. He was also instrumental in getting the Evelyn Cameron Gallery started. Hunting, fishing and agate picking were always enjoyed and nothing was better than a ride in the country.
Eddie was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Dolly, grandson Kristoffer Pfiefle and several siblings. He is survived by his step-son Gary Pfiefle (Lois), grandson Mikael Pfiefle, siblings Miles Gaub, Marion Anderson, Dalyce Record and Jeanette O’Dea. There are also many nieces, nephews and special friends.
A military graveside service will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Prairie County Cemetery in Terry. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting: www.stevensonandsons.com.
