Larry Dean Gleason, 54, passed away on July 19, 2014, at RiverStone Hospice House, after a long battle with cancer.
Larry was born in Scobey on Nov. 18, 1959, to Jack and Arland (Grandlund) Gleason.
In his younger years, he traveled with his family to Wyoming, Idaho and Washington. They finally came to settle in Billings in 1970. He attended Laurel High School and graduated in 1978. He married LePriel Morgan on Aug. 9, 1986, and later divorced in 1999.
He was a truck driver by trade, but soon knew his joy in steel sales. His biggest joys in life were bare bronc riding, stock car racing, riding dirt bikes, hunting, fishing, woodworking and, of course, spending time with his children.
He is survived by his two children, Jack (JC) Gleason and Linda (TC) Ragsdale; siblings Glenn, Lois, and Robert (RJ); and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He is preceded in death by his father Jack and mother Arland; both set of maternal and paternal grandparents; and “Blue” and “Troubles” (his beloved four-legged friends).
Services will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, July 24, at Michelotti-Sawyers Mortuary, 1001 Alderson Ave.
