Cub first attended
school in Fossil then moved
to Wamic after his dad died
and later to Maupin, where
he lived with relatives and
friends while working his
way through school. He
graduated from Wasco
County Union High School
in 1951, where he was a
standout athlete and made
many lifelong friends. After

sitting in the front row of
his children’s and grand-
children’s events, travel-

grandchildren. He was a
fiercely independent and

who did anything he could
to support his family.
Cub was preceded in
