Sept. 28, 1923 – Sept. 5, 2014
Dale Boyce Brown passed away on Friday, Sept. 5, 2014 at the Power County Nursing Home in American Falls. He was born Sept. 28, 1923 in Lovell, WY, to Achilles and Myrtle Boice Brown. In the early 1930’s the family loaded all of their possessions into a wagon and moved to Salmon, ID. Dale attended school in Salmon and graduated in 1944.
Dale served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the United States Northwest Mission. He married Viola Rosa Hymas on June 29, 1951 in the Idaho Falls Temple. Four children were born to them; Rosa Dianne, Cindy May, Dale Boice, and Myrtle Charlotte. In 1968, the family moved to Rockland, ID. Dale and Viola enjoyed raising their children and then watching their grandchildren grow. In 2007, health forced them both to move to the Power County Nursing Home.
Dale is survived by his children, Dianne (Martin) Reaves, Rockland, Cindy (James) McLean, Rockland, Dale (Vicki) Brown, Roy, UT; Charlotte (Thomas) Waddoups, American Falls; 16 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren; and one brother, Chuck (Carol) Brown, Oregon. He is preceded in death by his wife, Viola; his parents; three brothers, Scott, Jim and Larry; four sisters, Curtie, Doris, Lola and Louise; two grandchildren, Tressa and Shaylene Reaves.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Power County Nursing Home, especially granddaughter Amanda Cardona, for the wonderful care that has been given him over the last several years.
