Brian Oliver Orth, 68, of Glasgow, Montana, passed away of natural causes on Saturday, February 19, 2022 in his home in Glasgow.
He was born January 28, 1954 in Glasgow, Montana to Verne and Marian (Sletten) Orth. He joined older siblings Alice and Luella and was an older brother to Donna. He grew up on a farm outside of Nashua and the family enjoyed traveling during his childhood. He graduated from Nashua High School in 1972. He married Judy Taylor on September 25, 1978. They had two children, Jon and Katrina. Although they separated briefly, Brian and Judy were together for nearly 30 years before her death in 2009.
Brian worked as a farm and ranch hand for most of his life. He loved working outdoors and his gentle nature made him a natural helper. He enjoyed working with cattle and spent many summers custom harvesting.
He loved people and was always willing to lend a hand to someone who needed it. His heart was as big as his smile, which he shared with everyone he met. He loved to tell stories. He enjoyed bowling but mostly loved to drive. He whiled away many hours in the pickup, enjoying the countryside and old country music.
He is survived by his children Jon Orth and Katrina Orth, and his sisters Donna Borgen and Luella Lucara. He was preceded in death by his wife Judy, his parents Verne and Marion Orth, and his sister Alice Riley.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at the VFW in Glasgow, Montana with Pastor Rick Thompson officiating.
