(January 23, 2003)
Memorial services were held Monday, Jan. 27 at the Eagles Club in Powell for Eugene T. (Doc) Bischoff, 68, who died in Powell Thursday morning, Jan. 23.
He was born April 15, 1934, in Lovell to Eugene O. and Helen (Tebbs) Bischoff.
On July 2, 1953, he married Margaret Ann Halliwell in Lovell. They later divorced.
They lived in Lovell until 1964 when the family moved to Powell. He received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1964.
He worked for Dr. W.R. Lee at Lee Veterinary Clinic (now Dr. Acker's) for 10 years before building the Powell Veterinary Clinic in its present location at 522 S. Division St. He recently retired from the business.
He loved the mountains and enjoyed time spent on the family ranch in the Big Horns. He was involved in and supported anything that had to do with family.
Family members will remember his unselfish way: generous with his time and money and yet asked for nothing in return. They will remember him taking the time to serve his family and friends to the best of his ability.
Survivors include his former spouse, Margaret, of Powell; his five children, Pam Kysar and husband Jim of Powell and their children, Kasi Kysar of Bozeman, Mont., and Aimee Jo Jolley and husband, Spencer, and their children, Kaya Jolley and Kynlee Jolley, all of Cowley; Lyle Bischoff of Powell; Val Cross and husband Dan and their children, Kori Cross and Justin Cross of Powell; Max Bischoff and wife Maryann and their children, Chelsea, Tyrell and Cade of Burlington; Deborah May and husband Lanning and their children, Maci, Miranda and Reece of Cowley; four brothers, Dan Bischoff and wife Kathy of Lovell, Mack Bischoff and wife Kelly of Sheridan, Jim Bischoff of Lovell and Dave Bischoff and wife Jackie of Lovell; two sisters, Kay Hopkin and husband Neil of Lovell and Judy Lewis and husband Mike of Lovell; a special friend, Tom Churchill, of Powell; and all his friends who loved and cared about him.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Ron; and sisters, Ann and Judy.
Per his wishes, cremation has taken place. For those who wish, memorials to Caring for Powell Animals would be appreciated by the family.
