FORT MISSOULA Body believed to be suicide victim
NEW MEXICO Blackfeet hatbox Best of Show
A decomposed body was found Sunday afternoon by a walker exploring the Fort Missoula area near the Bitterroot River. Missoula County sheriff’s deputies were called to a spot between the river and the water tower at Fort Missoula about 4:15 p.m., where they identified the body of a male who appeared to have died of suicide, said Sheriff Carl Ibsen. The body was taken to the Montana State Crime Lab for an autopsy. The incident remains under investigation, but it is believed the body had been in the spot where it was discovered for a week or more. Foul play is not suspected. Betsy Cohen, Missoulian
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – A woman from the Blackfeet Nation of Montana has won this year’s Best of Show award at the Santa Fe Indian Market. Jackie Bread’s piece, titled “Memory Keeper” is a colorful beaded hatbox featuring the image of a Native American man. The box also has two pouches with sepia-tone images of other faces, which are also made of beads. Bread said the market is the highlight of her year. Her family says the faces on the hatbox represent Beard’s relatives. More than 60 jurors looked through hundreds of pieces from 400 artists to pick the winner. The market, in its 92nd year, ended Sunday afternoon.

Daniel E. ‘Dan’ Hastings
Timothy Calvin Kendall Sr.
STEVENSVILLE – Daniel E. “Dan” Hastings died suddenly and unexpectedly of natural causes at his home Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013, three days short of his 67th birthday. He was born Aug. 18, 1946, the eldest of nine in Butte, America, to Ed and Ann (O’Gara) Hastings. He attended St. Mary’s Grade School and graduated from Butte Central High School in 1964. The following year, he and his close friend E.J. Gordon enlisted in the Navy. He served aboard the USS Repose until his honorable discharge. Dan married Terry Wallace of Butte and had three children, Mike, Shauna and Steve. They were later divorced. In 1978, he married Barbara Hastings (Swick) Hastings in Miles City. They immediately moved to Missoula and a few years later to the Stevensville area, where they have resided since. Before retiring, Dan had worked a total of 26 years in the electrician/fiber-optic trade (majority with Mountain Bell/US West/Qwest). During his retirement, he found out that “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” and returned to work before retiring again in 2007. Dan was a staunch union supporter and was a union steward of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 233 for many years. During retirement, he was active in the American Legion Post 94 and recently served as commander, a title of which he was extremely proud. Dan was also a charter member of the Knights of Columbus Our Lady of the Mountains Council. He enjoyed many activities, but was always happiest when he was with family. He realized a lifelong dream with a trip to Ireland in 2007. Dan was preceded in death by his grandparents; parents; infant brother, Michael; and sister, Patti (Trevena). He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Barbara; his five children, Michael of Missoula, Shauna (Bob) Yelverton of Wichita, Kan., Steve of Horatio, Ark., David of Laurel and Danny of Missoula; grandchildren, Chance and Sierra; brothers and sisters, Mary Kay Rowlett of Cottage Grove, Ore., Jodi (Ed) Morgan of Coeur d’Alene Idaho, Sharon (Randy) Guizzo of Butte, Ed (Diane) Hastings of Helena, Tom Hastings of Helena and John (Tawana) Hastings of Iowa; and many beloved nieces and nephews. Also surviving Dan are his mother-in-law, Ethel Swick of Miles City; and brothers-in-law, Bruce (Carol) Swick of Helena and Bob (Jeanne) Swick of Moorhead, Minn., and their families. A vigil service will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, at St. Mary’s Parish, 333 Charlos, in Stevensville, where the funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Box 634, Butte, MT; St. Mary’s Parish; Pantry Partners; or a charity of your choice. “Tap’er light, pard.” Condolences and memories may be left for the family at whitesittfuneralhome.com.
GEORGETOWN LAKE – Life here on Earth for me will be forever changed as my husband, Timothy Calvin Kendall Sr., joined our beloved son, Timmy Kendall Jr., at the gates of heaven Friday, Aug. 16, 2013. He was surrounded by his loving family as his courageous battle with cancer came to a close. Tim departed from this world on his mother’s birthday. Tim was born Feb. 4, 1949, in Spokane to Calvin Husten Kendall and Alice Valeria Kopnski. Tim grew up in Eureka, Calif. Later in his teen years, the family moved to Kendall Weaverville, Calif., where he graduated from high school. He later attended Shasta Junior College in Redding, Calif. In 1971, Tim graduated from Chico State College in Chico, Calif., with a bachelor’s degree in business. He married his “browneyed beauty,” Judith C. Kellner, on July 24, 1970. The definition of “true love” would describe Tim and Judy in their 43 years of marriage, partnering in everything they did. Together they raised three magnificent children, Timmy Jr., Travis and Jennie. Tim embraced his children through good times and bad, with the mind-set that no one could be more productive, better equipped or talented with any task. His children were the “apple of his eye.” God continued to bless Tim and Judy with eight beautiful grandchildren who brought them so much joy and comfort. Tim worked for ITT Continental Baking Co. in Portland, Ore., University of Montana, Missoula First Credit Union and for his wife at Kendall’s Kiddy Kare, where Tim was fondly called Bobo by the children. One of his daily routines would be napping with a baby in his arms. Tim’s greatest and first love was his love for God. His other passions included golf, fishing, hunting, hiking, exploring mountain lakes and the great wilderness of Montana. Tim and Judy retired in 2010 to their cabin at Georgetown Lake, where they spent endless hours working in their yard, enjoying latenight campfires and the gorgeous sunsets from their deck. However, Tim’s greatest and first love was his love for God. Tim was preceded in death by his oldest son, Timmy Jr.; his father, Calvin Husten; his mother, Alice Valeria; and his sister, Phyllis Foise. Tim is survived by his beloved Judy Kendall of Georgetown Lake; his greatest joys, Travis (Michelle) Kendall of Florence and Jennie (Matt) Preusser of Mansfield, Texas; his brother and golfing buddy, Terry (Debbie) Kendall of Missoula; his precious grandchildren, Arin, Molly, Calvin, Abby, Kendall, Ivy, Maddox and Zoe; his priceless nieces and nephews; and his many devoted friends. The family wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation to Anaconda Pintler Hospice and a special thanks to Frances Robbins, Shelia Connell and Bonnie Schaefer for their beloved care and limitless compassion. We will be forever indebted to you all. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, at Cornerstone Ministries in Lolo. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Anaconda Pintler Hospice, 118 E. Seventh St., Anaconda, MT 59711. “They that love beyond the world cannot be separated. Death cannot kill what never dies.” – William Penn Until we meet again, you, Tim Kendall, will be forever in “our” hearts.
