Losing a loved one is a human experience. One we all share on a very real level, especially as we ourselves age. The loses become more consistent and yet it becomes a love that never ceases, a spiritual experience, and a sign of a beautiful presence in your life, even still.

When we honor our memories of people we go beyond ourselves. We encourage everyone as individuals to share your stories, experiences, memories as a living tribute to those of us who are unable to be with us. Duplication is welcome all of our classmates had different impacts on different lives. Each experience we had with them is important

Tom Blaz

October 26th, 1975 - April 13th, 2009

Tom was polite, patient, kind and unendingly loyal. He was a wonderful father and a great human being. I would often see him after we graduated, he was imensely bonded to his children. You just knew they where the universe around which his stars aligned.  That says alot about a man as a person and a great contribution to society.

Obituary


On Nov. 28, 2015, we lost our beloved Eric. The youngest son of Ruth (Hanson) Blom and the late Adrian “Ade” Blom, Eric was born (Dec. 5, 1975) and raised in the West Valley of Anaconda where he made so many lifelong friends. He spent his youth playing baseball, hunting and fishing with his mom, dad, brothers and sisters, which became a passion of his that was passed on to his beloved son, Dias Blom.

Eric’s first job was working at Custodis for his dad. During this time, he got to travel to different states. He returned to Anaconda after living in Oregon and soon thereafter he began working at Stillwater Mining Co., in Big Timber, Montana, where he has been for 15 years.

He married the love of his life, Kristen (Smith) Blom on Aug. 29, 2015 in Sand Basin, Montana. Eric cherished his time home from work and he filled every day off with friends and family and his beloved lab Trigger. Eric’s idea of a good time was being out in the mountains with friends, family, cold Bud Light, and a hot fire. He loved hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing and camping.

Eric filled our lives with laughter and never passed on an opportunity to prank someone. The love he had for his family was boundless. He had such a closeness with his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews but none closer than with his mother Ruth. Eric’s smile will be eternally missed and we will never forget those beautiful blue eyes.

Eric is survived by his mother, Ruth Blom; his wife, Kristen (Smith) Blom; his son, Dias Blom; his siblings, Ron (Doris) Paull, Mark (Allison) Blom, Lorin (Rebecca) Blom, Sandy (Dan) Tocher and Michelle (Randy) Paull; mother-in-law, Sue Hollowell; sister-in-law, Carinne Smith; brother-in-law, Mandela Hollowell; nieces and nephews, Brandis (David) Frank, Carl Paull, David (Caitlyn) Paull, Cody (Alicia) Tocher, Haley (Zane) Tocher, Justin (Jamie) Paull, Mariah Blom, Skyler and Nicole Stuber; great-nephew and nieces, Gavin Frank, Zaeleigh Paull, and Adeley Kenny; and many loved uncles, aunts and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Adrian Blom and his grandparents.

Phillip Nebeker

- - December 18th, 2000

It is interesting, I have so many school memories of Phil. It can be reasonably said he had a bit of a wild side,  it was always good natured. There was a certain vulnerability that exsisted that made him relatable. I couldn't find an actual obituary which made me extremely sad, given the circumstance his life ended in.  Please if you have photo's or anything to share we would appreciate it.
