Born Nov. 6, 1932, in Ten Sleep, he was the son of Brooks and Eula (Waln) Egbert.  He was raised and educated in the Ten Sleep area and graduated from Ten Sleep High School in 1950.  He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force; was injured a short time later; and was released on a medical discharge.  After returning to Ten Sleep, he then moved to Hanover, Ill., to work as a farmhand. He moved to Forsyth, Mont., and continued working on local ranches until 1960, when he went to work in the oil field.

 

On Sept. 2, 1960, he married Nettie Woods in Lewistown, Mont.  They made their home in the Lewistown area for the next two years. The family moved several times in the following years to different parts of the country.

In 1993, the couple settled in Worland. He drove a truck until retiring in 2000.  His hobbies included taking care of his yard, flower-gardening, and woodworking. He was a member of the American Legion and Eagles Lodge.
