Full Obituary:

"The most important thing in the world to me is my Lord and my family. Without honor, pride and respect for one's self and others, there is nothing." Gale R. Aspelund, 63, died Sunday, Dec. 25, 2011, at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston. He was born Oct. 14, 1948, in Miles City, Mont. He graduated from Lewiston High School and joined the U.S. Navy, where he served for 22 years. His parents, Myrad and Mildred Aspelund, preceded him in death. He is survived by his sons, Dale and Pandora of Anacortes, Wash, and Dante and his partner Debbie Byram of Lewiston; his sisters, Cheryl Holbrook of Lewiston and Debbie Hislop and husband Jeff of Spirit Lake; his brother, Doug Aspelund and wife Debbie of Lenore; his beloved granddaughters, Lottie and Olive of Anacortes; his adopted granddaughters, Jessica Byram and Rebecca Cable; and many nieces, nephews and loving friends. Gale was a very good man who took great pride in serving his country and for the men and women who still do. Family was very important to him and he was proud of the men his sons turned out to be. He enjoyed fishing and camping, loved to play pool and Yahtzee, and really loved to win. His smile would light up anyone's world.
