Lubin J. “Pete” Nygaard, 77, Orofino
Lubin J. “Pete” Nygaard of Orofino peacefully left us
This early example of rebellion would pave the way to adolescence full of adventure. He was a man that lived his life on his own terms and relished challenges.
Pete grew up with two older sisters, Betty (Paul) Hart of Gunnison, CO and Phyllis Heywood. In 1949 and 1950, Pete was a proud member of the OHS Maniac Basketball State Champions led by Coach Monk Montgomery.
He found his
life companion, Pauline D. Clark, and they were married
Pete became an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved everything outdoors and taught his children and grandchildren his secrets of success.
Pete’s early work history was alongside his dad in the lumber industry. Later most of his days were spent behind the wheel of a logging truck for numerous logging companies in the area.
After suffering a massive stroke in ’98 Pete began to learn patience, understanding and how to let others take care of him, as he had done for his family and friends for many years.
Leaving behind to carry on his legacy, along with his four children, are his grandchildren, Cassie (Tim) Adams, Joey (Geoff) Schneider, Trent (Debbi) Hoyle, Cody (Meranda) Nygaard and Heather Nygaard; great-grandchildren Shaylen, Kaylie, Dalton Adams and Easton and Hudson Schneider; and his extended family, Bill Hoyle, Cassie (his morning sunshine), Bryan Madsen and children Caleb, Abby and Lil’ Man Cole.
Preceding Pete in death were his parents, wife Pauline and his dog LP Shooter, sister Phyllis Heywood, grandson Jeremy Hollibaugh and great-grandson Andrew Adams.
Per his wishes cremation has taken place and a Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7, at Pine Hills Funeral Chapel in Orofino.
Pine Hills Funeral Chapel & Crematory is in care of arrangements.
