HULBERT, Mich. - Longtime Hulbert resident, Lewis Eargood, 88, died Wednesday morning, October 24, 2012 at War Memorial Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie.
Born August 2, 1924 in Antioch Township, Michigan, son of the late Albert and May (Foster) Eargood, Lewis served in the Civilian Conservation Corps in Paradise from July of 1941 to June of 1942 and later was employed at the Sheldon Lumber Mill in Eckerman until his enlistment into the United States Navy on December 13, 1942. His military career spanned over twenty years until his honorable discharge on December 30, 1962 with the rank of Chief Hospital Corpsman. Following his discharge, he was employed by the U.S. Civil Service as a Senior Naval Hospital Technician for over two years, returning to Hulbert to care for his mother. Lewis attended the Hulbert United Methodist Church and was a member of the American Legion Post #393 in Hulbert. Lewis enjoyed yard work, especially caring for his apple trees.
For those who knew Lewis, he was a very caring and helpful person who supported needy families throughout the years in Hulbert. His generosity was done unselfishly and quietly with no recognition. He will be missed by all of his friends and those he helped over the years.
Per his request, cremation services were accorded with interment to take place at the Hulbert Township Cemetery.
