Our most sincere condolences to you Pam and Brandon and to the rest of your family. Eulan was a very unique person and a friend of our family for years. He was a special friend to my grandfather Dugan Dosier. Eulan used to shoe our horses when I was a kid and he amazed me how he could handle just about any horse. Loved riding horses with him in the river bottom. He was a giant of a man with a giant heart. Our prayers to you all. ❤️

I and my children are so sorry for the loss of Eulan. He was a unique man. He loved to help. Sometimes he mowed for us when my husband was sick. He was a good neighbor and a great supporter of the community. He will be missed. Our hearts go out to the family. Love from the DeRossetts.

when my aunt Billie Jo passed away I will never forget Eulan crossed the street to my aunt Billie Jo's when she passed away one morning. He knocked on the door and came in. He took off his cowboy hat and held it to his chest. He then started to cry. I will never forget that day as long as I live. It was a very sad moment.
he loved my aunt Billie Jo. once again I will never forget. Eulan was a very good man, and he loved people for sure. My prayers are with Eulan and all his family. Kemp has lost a great man. He was a pillar of that community. I know I will never forget him
