O. H. Ogle obituary

Bobby “Max” Ogle was born June 8, 1934, in Sevierville, Tenn.
He was “called home to be with the Lord” on March 26, 2014, after a difficult battle with bone cancer that began in April 2013.
Celebration of Max’s life will be 10 a.m. Saturday, April 5 at North Valley Baptist Church, 1750 Talbot Road in Columbia Falls.
Max met the love of his life, Eula Lindsey, on Christmas Day in 1952. Eula is the daughter of the late Roy and Muriel Lindsey of Columbia Falls. Max and Eula were married the following Christmas and just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary Christmas of 2013.
Max was raised in a Christian home by Cleophas and Jessie Ogle, who are both deceased. Cleophas was a carpenter and the music director of the Roaring Fork Baptist Church in Gatlinburg, Tenn., where Max was baptized in the Roaring Fork Creek at the age of 13. He became a carpenter, helping his father and brother, learning the skills to build homes.
Once married, Max and Eula moved to Columbia Falls where, over the years, Max built several homes for his family. He also helped family members and friends build homes of their own. He started working at the Columbia Falls Aluminum Plant on Feb. 22, 1956, working his way up to pot line superintendent, and retired on July 26, 1989, after 33 and a half years of service.
Max was recently recognized for collecting can tabs for the Iguana Club who donate the money for a Ronald McDonald Family Room in Kalispell to serve cancer victims and their families. He worked at this for over 18 years and last year gathered 11 gallons of can tabs. That is quite a commitment but that’s the kind of man Max was, always looking for ways to help others. He often offered his time and talent in service projects to help his community.
Max enjoyed church, whistling and singing old hymns, camping, hunting, fishing and sharing his adventures. He loved spending quality time with his family and would do anything for them. After retirement he enjoyed sitting outside his home on the North Fork Road, and people would honk and wave. He was always happy to wave back. He also had a fun job of taking care of his animal friends that visited his home: Squirrels and their babies, deer, turkeys, birds, bears and an amazing number of hummingbirds. Then for the last 18 winters Max and Eula would head to Yuma, Ariz., to be in the sunshine with dear friends and family.
Max is survived by his wife, Eula of Columbia Falls; one brother, OH and wife Anne, and two sisters, Betty Jinks, and Peggy Watson and husband Clellon, who all live in Gatlinburg on the family homestead; two daughters, Kathy and husband Bill Brunett of Columbia Falls, and Karla and husband Mike Stratton of Spring Hill, Tenn.; two brothers-in-law, Carroll Lindsey and wife Virginia, and Leroy Lindsey, all of Columbia Falls; four granddaughters, Amy and husband Pat McCubbins of Goodyear, Ariz., Kristy and husband Scott Corbett of Kalispell, Rachel Stratton of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Lauren Stratton of Johnson City, Tenn.; five great-grandchildren, Cameron, Skyler and Christian McCubbins of Goodyear, and Easton and McKenzie Corbett of Kalispell; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In memory of Max and in lieu of flowers, he asked that donations be made locally through the Kalispell Regional Medical Center for Home Options Hospice or the Ronald McDonald Family Room through Kalispell Regional Healthcare Foundation, 310 Sunnyview Lane, Kalispell, MT 59901.
The family would like to thank the doctors and staff who cared for Max, KRMC Infusion Center staff and volunteers, and Home Options Hospice staff. We especially would like to recognize the Hospice staff and volunteers for the wonderful, compassionate, loving care they provided during this challenging time, not only to Max but to his entire family. Home Options Hospice staff has become an amazing part of our family and we appreciate their prayers and friendships. Of course, to all the family and friends that called or came to visit, brought food, prayed, supported and loved Max and our family, we pray God’s blessings upon you all. We are very thankful for each and every one of you.
Columbia Mortuary is caring for Max’s family.
