Evert Fugate

Evert Fugate was born on Dec. 15, 1938, and passed away peacefully on March 6. He was the son of Everett and Meda (Wireman) Fugate.

Evert had a full life. He grew up outside of Medaryville. He worked on the family farm until he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.  After the Marines, he became an apprentice electrician at Pullman Standard. Throughout his life, he worked as a boilermaker and semitruck driver. When he wasn’t on the road, he was out in his shed building small trailers or doing some welding for his neighbors.   

Evert leaves behind two sons: James Lee Fugate and Ronald Ray Trusty; six grandchildren; sister Marie Fugate Hale; and brother David Lee Fugate. He will be missed by all that knew him. 

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
