Ty Ross Aagard

Oct. 25, 1987 – Aug. 14, 2013

A “cowboy style” Celebration of Life for Ty Ross Aagard of Manderson was held at the home of Marcy and Del Friedly in Powell Aug. 17. Ty, 25, died suddenly Aug. 14 in a farming accident in Manderson.

Ty was born Oct. 25, 1987, in Cody, the son of Olaf Aagard and Patti McIntosh Hufford. He attended school in Powell. At the time of his death he was living and working as a farm and ranch hand for his fiancée’s (Michelle Mullins) family.

He loved his work and also loved riding and training horses. His hobbies included leatherwork and working cows. He took great pride in loaning his trusty old horse “Clarence” to 4-H kids.

Ty was preceded in death by his mother, Patti Hufford, and one brother, Travis Aagard.

He is survived by his fiancée Michelle Mullins of Manderson; his father Olaf Aagard of Cody; one brother, Trent Aagard of Casper; and his sister and brother-in-law, Marcy and Del Friedly of Cody.

A memorial fund to benefit 4-H kids has been established at Security State Bank, Box 531, Basin, WY 82410-0460.
