Dale Raymond Taylor October 31, 1930 - June 4, 2011 Dale we wanted all those who hadn't the pleasure of knowing you to get a little glimpse of you from those who loved you. Before going further Dale, we'll leave an address for those who would like to meet you and your Maker or even rekindle a friendship. That address can be found in the New Testament, John:3:16 free of charge. Since you have experienced the total new body makeover we know how much you can appreciate the improvement; but, for the sake of reminiscing, you are stuck with the old one we knew. First of all you had an exceptional ability for fixing anything from reassembling a grandfather clock to transmissions. It didn't come as any surprise when after mastering the Rubik's cube you proceeded to tear it apart to see if it was constructed the way you thought it was...and of course it was. Hunting was another one of those joys that many have, but didn't master nearly as well as you did. You forgot more about elk than the "Fish and Game" biologist ever knew concerning their habits and nature. By the way, you were a man's man...and the woods were your home. The list of your accomplishments are too numerous to mention. Ruby will be diligently looked after till she joins you. Your love of family will continue on. Your kids are made of strong stuff as I know you are aware. You were so very good to a paricular nephew and brother-in-law and are loved by them. God bless you Dale, through him we will see you again. Friends and family are warmly invited to a celebration of your life at 3304 N Lakeharbor Ln, Boise, 83703 on June 12th, 5:30 -7:30. There will be your music, your stories, and food. XOXO
Sidney William (Bill) Coy 1913 - 2011 Sidney William (Bill) Coy passed away at his home on Monday, June 6 at age 97. He was born on Dec. 28, 1913, in Boise, to Lucinda Blanche (Morris) Coy and Sidney William Coy. His life will be celebrated in a private family gathering on Sunday. Bill was a very private person with a great zest for life and fun and plants and family. He grew up hiking, camping, and fishing in southern and central Idaho in the 1920's. He felt a great passion, respect, and responsibility for our beautiful environment and water resources. Music was an essential part of Bill's life. He played violin and joined the Syncopators, a dance band, at age 16, after graduating early from Boise High School, and played in dance bands for several years. Bill's professional life with Idaho Power Co. began in 1935. He retired as Assistant Treasurer in 1978 after 43 years with the company. During that period, he was active with the Elks and the Idaho Heart Association. Bill spent his life nurturing his plants and his family. He designed and built his first greenhouse at age 16 and that love turned into a part-time business which he and his wife, Dorothy, operated until 1970. He also designed and built the former family home on Cassia Street and a vacation cabin on Cascade Reservoir. Bill and Dorothy were married on Dec. 31, 1938, in Boise, and celebrated their 72nd anniversary this past December. They raised three daughters, and have seven grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. Bill loved to travel. He and Dorothy made several trips to Mexico with their travel trailer, including a well-remembered trip on a train caravan down the Copper Canyon. They also made several visits to Hawaii with family members. Bill's survivors include his wife, Dorothy, three daughters and sons-in-law: Dianne and Eric Carlson, Lake Oswego, Oregon, Nancy and Jim Arnett, Star, Idaho, and Susan and Wes Worcester, Meridian, Idaho, and seven grandchildren: Rob Carlson, Tim Arnett, Kristin Palmer, Tracy Worrell, Gina Coy Ransom, Scott Worcester, and Jamie Worcester.
