Carl Elias Goble

Carl Elias Goble passed away peacefully late in the evening in Dayton on Tuesday, Aug. 15, surrounded by his loving family.

Carl was born Oct. 24, 1927 in Harrison, Montana to Harold and Elizabeth Goble. He attended Deer Lodge Elementary and Powell County High School. After graduating, Carl enlisted in the Marines and served in Guam during World War II. Returning from the war, he attended Western Montana College in Dillon, playing semi-pro baseball and meeting his loving wife and mother to his seven children, Rose Mary Tyro. They married Feb. 1, 1951.

Carl and his growing family moved from Spearfish, South Dakota to Hungry Horse where he took a position at Anaconda Aluminum. It was a job that kept his family in the Flathead Valley for approximately 30 years until his retirement at the age of 55. He then settled in Eureka and enjoyed a life as a snowbird, campground host, professional tinkerer, and fun-loving grumpa.

Carl was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed camping, fishing, and boating. Whether you were a Wildcat or a Bulldog, you could find Carl and Rose in the stands supporting the local sports teams.

Carl is preceded in death by his wife Rose and son Curt.

He is survived by his children, Vonnie and her husband Warren of Eureka; Craig and his wife Lori of Whitefish; Jim and his wife Mary Ellen of Dayton; Beth of Whitefish; Helen of Kalispell; and Keith and his wife Patsy of Helena. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

There will be no formal service for Carl at this time. Carl was always involved in the community through coaching and community organizations such as Jaycees, Kiwanis, Rotary, Boat Club or local Booster clubs. In lieu of flowers and gifts the family is requesting donations in Carl’s name to any of the above-mentioned organizations. Memories and condolences may be sent to the family at www.thelakefuneralhomeandcrematory.com. Carl will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him. Arrangements are under the direction of The Lake Funeral Home and Crematory.
