Gale W. Fogle was born Nov. 25, 1933, to Dina (Negaard) and Ezra Fogle in Jordan, Montana. He was raised on the family ranch with his sister, Irene (Bud) Adams; brothers, Vernon (Eileen), Earnest (Almedia), and Kenneth (Alice).
Gale proudly served in the Army and married the love of his life, Margret Denard in September of 1960. He was a proud dad and loving father to four sons, Gene, Glenn, Mark (Mary), and Duane. Gale and his family moved from the Fogle Ranch when he took a job with Cardinal Drilling, which he would say was his favorite job.
In 1978, he settled his family in Gillette, Wyoming, taking a job at AMAX mine as a truck driver, then a blaster until his retirement in 1999.
He was a talented woodworker and created many beautiful pieces for his family, which they all cherish. Gale loved playing cards and darts and talking of the past. He was a loving grandpa and great-grandpa to Kimberly and Bill Christy (Brooke and Jayden); Bridgette Fogle and Dusty (Laynre); Jessica Fogle and Casey; Mathew and Sara Fogle (Bentley and Bronson). Gale was a beloved uncle and cousin to many.
Gale left us on Friday, April 26, 2019, surrounded by his family.
He was met in Heaven by his sons, Duane and Glenn; parents; sister Irene; and brothers Buzz and Tubb.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that memorials be made in Gale’s name to benefit Campbell County Dialysis Fund. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel, 210 West Fifth Street, Gillette, Wyoming 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at www.gillettememorialchapel.com
