Norman LeTempt

November 10, 1937 ~ October 24, 2017

Service: October 29, 2017 3:00 PM
   Location: Belgrade Community Church

Norman Eugene LeTempt, 79, of Bozeman, Montana, passed away October 24, 2017.  He was born November 10, 1937, to Norman and Bessie (Miller) LeTempt in Elmo, Missouri. 

At 17, after graduating from Belgrade High School, he enlisted in the United States Navy.  He was an Ensign from 1952 to 1955 during the Korean War.

Norman’s railroad career took he and his family many places including Havre, Missoula, Manhattan, Belgrade and Bozeman, all in Montana. 

Norman married Karen Stuart Brown and they later divorced.  He then married Marion LeTempt and they had three children, Bear, Amanda and Matthew.  They lived in Havre and were very much involved in the Native American tribe at the Rocky Boy Reservation.  After a work injury to his foot, Norman retired from the Railroad and later moved to Tacoma, Washington, with his three children and Marion.  Marion later passed away and Norman helped his daughter, Amanda, raise his granddaughter, Isabell, whom he loved very much.

He moved back to Belgrade to help his mother, Bessie Miller.  He married LaVonne Marks a few years ago, and she passed three months prior to his passing. 

He loved to fish, play cards and attend Belgrade Community Church.  Norman was generous to a fault and would help out anyone he knew who was in need.  He never met a stranger who didn’t quickly become a friend.

Norman is survived by his daughter, Kristen Gibboni, who is married to Michael, and they reside in Pennsylvania with their four children; daughter, Amanda Louise LeTempt and her daughter, Isabell, reside in Washington; son, Norman Bear LeTempt is a speech therapist and resides in Washington with his wife, Jenn, and their son, Devon; son, Matthew M. LeTempt is bravely serving as a Staff Sergeant in the Army, and he has a son, Amious Joseph; sister, Barbara (Bob) Larson; and brother, Dennis Miller.

Memorial services will be held Sunday, October 29th at 3 p.m. at Belgrade Community Church.
