Devon Jon Grube, 35, of Virginia Beach, VA and formerly of Cavalier, ND died accidentally on December 28, 2016. He was born February 4, 1981, son of the late Rodney Grube and Kaye Grube Furstenau,
Devon graduated from Cavalier Public School in 2000 and from the University of North Dakota in 2004. Devon and his childhood friend, Tony Clark, chose to enlist in the Navy following the attacks on September 11, 2001. Upon completing Basic Training, Devon spent a year in Norfolk, VA on the USS Roosevelt as an Electrician's Mate. He was accepted into Basic Underwater Demolition Training (BUD/S) and graduated with Class 267 in August 2008, where he received the distinctive recognition as Honor Man. After graduation, Devon was sent to SEAL Team Eight where he deployed to Afghanistan, Europe, and Africa. During his service he was highly sought after to mentor and train young SEALs in tactical shooting, stalking, ballistics, or just to talk about new rifles or bows.
While he was at BUD/S he met the love of his life, Margie. Margie and Devon were married on January 2, 2010. They made their home in Virginia Beach, VA. He was the most adoring husband and father to his wife and their three children Wyatt, Harper, and Hazel. Devon's love for his family was larger than life. His passion for the outdoors was unmatched and was easily passed on to his son Wyatt. Some of their activities included fishing at Stumpy Lake 3-4 times a week, camping, bonfires and learning to shoot a bow. Even with all Devon's time spent teaching Wyatt about how to be a man, he still found time to be with his two little girls, Harper and Hazel. He would braid their hair and dance to "Let it Go," bringing a smile to their faces.
In addition to his wife and three children, Devon is survived by his mom, Kaye, and stepfather, Garnet Furstenau, his siblings, Constance Holth, Chad Holth and Desiree (Jesse) Hopkins, stepbrothers, Aaron (Steph) Furstenau, and Adam (Denise) Furstenau, and several nieces and nephews. He is further survived by his wife's parents, Mark and Marie Stankiewicz, sister in-law Mary (Dennis) Dabros, and several aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family. He was preceded in death by his grandparents and his father, Rodney.
