Albert Leroy Sergent, 88, went to be with the Lord on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, in Warm Springs, Mont.

Funeral Services will be held Friday, Dec. 22, at 1 p.m., at Bell Mortuary in Glasgow, followed by burial at the Highland Cemetery in Glasgow.

He was an identical twin and the fourth child born to Benjamin Harris Sergent and Delilah Margret Bailey on Oct. 19, 1929, in Wolf Point, Mont. He went to grade school in New Deal and moved to Minnesota to live with his family. He went in the Army Nov. 17, 1948, and was stationed in Alaska during the Korean War era. He was discharged July 28, 1952.

He married Ruby Crause Nov. 26, 1952, in Wolf Point. They had six children and divorced in 1964. He married Lorene Crider in 1965, and together they raised the six children.

He worked lots of odd jobs in Montana when he came back from Minnesota. He was a sheepherder and he cleaned lots of different places like the City Cafe, the First Security Bank and their computer building and the rest area west of Glasgow. He plowed snow, but his main jobs were working at the Chevy garage and the Glasgow Post Office as the custodian maintenance man, from which he retired.

He enjoyed hunting and fishing with family and friends. Christmas was his favorite holiday where he would put up his Christmas village around the tree and in the surrounding areas of the house. He liked visiting and playing cards and bingo with his close friends at Nemont Manor: Leona Garsjo, Hilda Rosencrans, Ron Bradford, Cecil Speer and Darryl Cozad.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Benjamin and Delilah; two wives, Ruby Sergent and Loraine Crider; two brothers, George Sergent and his identical twin, Alfred; and two sisters, Florence Sergent and Ethal Underwood.

He is survived by all six children, Robert Holms and his wife, Connie, of Oregon, David Sergent and his wife, Diane, of St. Marie, Carol Dixon and her husband, William, of Anaconda, Jerry Sergent and his wife, Norene, of Williston, N.D., Betty Frizzell and her husband, Curtis, of Arp, Texas, and Gloria Kountz (Joe Yeoman) of Glasgow; two brothers, Delvin Sergent and his wife, Betty, of Texas and Wilfred Sergent of Helena; two sisters, Myrtle McClerry of Helena and Aletha Crampton of Minnesota; 16 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; as well as many nieces and nephews.
