Funeral services for Leland Clyde Cathcart will be held today (Thursday, Aug. 8) at Viegut Funeral Home in Loveland, Colo. “Lee,” 69, died Aug. 4 in Colorado after an extended illness.
He was born Dec. 3, 1943, in Basin, the son of Wendell and Ora Taylor Cathcart. He graduated from Greybull High School as an honor student in 1962. He enjoyed all sports, excelled in football and was the co-captain of Greybull’s state championship football team.
He worked in management in the oil field service industry in Casper, Houston, Texas and Farmington, N.M., for 30 years.
He grew up fishing with his three brothers and fishing continued to be one of his passions for the rest of his life.
Lee was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather. One of his most unique traits was a tendency to antagonize, in the most loving manner, all those he knew. He was full of life and took advantage of every opportunity given to him — from church ministry, to traveling, to family life, to traversing the great outdoors.
He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Cheryl; two daughters, Cindy Price of Cape May, N.M., and Audra Bernal of Fort Collins; three brothers, Fred Cathcart of Denver, Ron Cathcart of Austin, Texas, and Randy Cathcart of Springfield, Mo.; and four grandchildren.
