Carlie Elmer Reum, Sr., age 85, passed away Thursday, February 27, 2020 at his home in Ronan, MT. Carlie was born April 8, 1934 in Van Hook, ND to Carl and Alma (Donaldson) Reum. Carlie was the youngest as well as the very last of the original Reum brothers and sisters that Papa Carl brought to and settled on his property of 40 acres in Ronan from North Dakota in 1936.

Carlie graduated from Polson High School in 1952. At the age of 18, he joined the Airforce and served during the Korean Conflict. After the Korean War was over, he was stationed in Alaska as a staff clerk until his discharge. He received several certificates for distinguished service. Carlie was one of the very last living Korean War Veterans in the world.

Carlie married Margaret (Sandy) Sandberg in 1959 and they had three children, Sandy Lou, Carlie Fred, and Clarence. He married Carol Pfau in 1970 and they had two children together, Chipp and Carlie Lynn. He married Nancy DeClue in 2006. They later divorced in 2014 but remained friends.

Carlie was a musician. He was a bass player and played all over the country with many bands. He started his own band called Whiskey Creek Outlaws. They played for many years all over Montana. He also was a long hall truck driver and hauled cement for his brother Roy. He also enjoyed karaoke, camping, and fishing.

Carlie was preceded in death by his parents; son Carlie Lynn; and his five brothers LeRoy, Clarence, Arthur, Clinton, Melvin, and two sisters Pearl and Ester; and his two wives Margaret and Carol.

Carlie is survived by his children Sandy Lou and her children, Kaetie (Lyle) Thompson, Fred (Jessica) Howard, and Kayla (Jerry); Chipp (Leslie) and their child Camron Reum; Carlie Jr. (Pam) and their children Brett Reum and Kylie Reum; Clarence and his child Autumn (James) Moore; 7 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
