MISSOULA – John S. Chaussee, Sr., age 67, of Missoula passed away on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, at St. Patrick Hospital.  

He was born September 5, 1948, in Missoula a son of Wilma and George Chaussee.  He grew up in the Rattlesnake where he attended Lincoln Grade School.  John also attended Hellgate High School where he set the state record in the 100 yard dash.

He taught his boys to hunt, fish, work on their rigs, and most importantly, how to be good fathers.

John is survived by his wife and favorite fishing buddy Judy; his sons, Johnny, Chris (Crystal), Josh (Mandi) and his grandkids, Scott, Mikal, Taylor and Carsyn.  He is also survived by his little sisters, Lynette (Louis) Presta and Debbie; his uncle Jake (Joan) as well as numerous brothers and sisters, in-laws, nieces, nephews and too many friends to name.

Rest in Peace dear Friend.
