Phillip Lee Gaudet
January 3, 2018
Phillip Lee Gaudet, 74, of Shelby Mont., passed away of natural causes on Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017, in the comfort of his home.
Memorial services are to be held in the spring of 2018.
He was born in Box Elder, Mont., to Lucille Flatness and Felix Gaudet, and was raised by Alice and A.W. Hobbs, who he looked to as his mother and father. He lived most of his adult life in Glasgow, where he worked for Coca Cola. He moved to Shelby in 2006, where he spent the remainder of his years.
He also served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam war and was a mechanic for fighter jets. He spent much of his time in the Navy stationed in Alaska and California. He was a very patriotic man and he always had a smile on his face, showing kindness to those around him. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and he was liked by all who met him.
He loved playing cards and attending his annual Whist Tournament, as well as watching his football team, the San Francisco 49ers. He was a loyal fan, through good times, though few, and tough times, which were most of the time!
He is survived by two daughters, Lacey Volk, her husband, Casey, and their two children, Acasia and Treysen, of Billings, and Sarah Neiwert and her husband, Alex, of Pocatello, Idaho.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to nephew Mike and niece Julie Dyrdahl, as well as his friend, Chuck, at Maria's Manor. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him, especially his children and grandchildren.
