David Marion Evert passed away on June 9, 2018. He was born March 24, 1924 in Baker, North Dakota, to Harry and Maude Evert. His family moved to Bathgate, ND, where he attended and graduated from school. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Army and served until the war was over. During that time, his family moved to Argyle, Minnesota. David met Myrna there and married her on February 12, 1947. He worked as a grain elevator manager for 40 years in Brocket, ND; Wellsburg, ND; Hendrum, MN; and Sterling, ND. In 1986, he and Myrna retired to Wyoming.
He served as mayor of Hendrum, was a member of the Masons, and built a lake cabin where the family spent many a weekend swimming, fishing, and gardening. Dave loved the outdoors and loved hunting with Craig and Pam in Wyoming for elk, moose, deer, antelope, and other game. He proudly displayed his trophies at home as a reminder of those great times he had.
