Jerry H. Knobel

Jerry H. Knobel, 70, died Sept. 30, 2016.
He was born to Guy and Gene Knobel Dec. 27, 1946, in Billings. The family lived in Broadview, where he attended school and excelled in track and basketball. He spent many hours alongside his dad on the tractor while farming.
After graduating, he attended college in Bozeman and later became a high school math teacher. He loved teaching math and coaching girls’ high school basketball and always valued the importance of education. He taught in several small communities throughout the state and found his home in Froid, where he happily taught for many years and eventually retired.
Although he loved teaching, he found no greater role than being a father to his two daughters. He spent many summers taking his daughters on trips, going camping, fishing and boating. He took his girls ice skating, roller skating or just played games with them on the lawn. As long as he was with them, it didn’t matter.
As wonderful of a father as he was, he was an even better grandfather. This is where he really shined. He has five grandchildren that he adored. He rarely missed a track meet, choir concert, cheerleading banquet or any school function his grandchildren were a part of. He had a special bond with each of them, whether it was working on his coin collection with one, fishing with another or watching SpongeBob movies.
He spent his final year after his diagnosis focusing on making sure everybody else was going to be taken care of and ok. He was always a selfless and humble man with a strong work ethic. Being able to work and be independent, not having to rely on others always meant so much to him. He was a proud man wanting to take care of his family, never asking for anything for himself.
He loved working on his racecar and going to the track with his friend Dan. Cars were a passion of his and he spent many hours working on them. He also enjoyed traveling, fishing and being outdoors.
He is survived by his daughters, Angela Albrecht of Laurel and Darcee Mixon of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; five gandchildren; his mother, Gene Knobel; and his sister, Sherry Gladson.
Cremation has taken place. No service upon his request.
