Blackfoot baseball player who died in wreck memorialized - Idaho State Journal

Monday, May 01, 2017

Hayes, and the two have been playing baseball together since they were 9 years old. On Wednesday, the Broncos’ baseball team honored their late teammate in a home game against Pocatello.AdvertisementBefore the matchup, Baler’s No. 11 jerseys, hat and glove were placed on first base, the position he played for Blackfoot, and given to his mother, Kindra. The Broncos also honored Baler with a ceremonial first pitch from Cayden Cornell. And when Baler’s No. 4 spot came up in the lineup, his name was announced and Pocatello threw a pitch to an empty batter’s box.“The last few days, it’s been all of us together,” Hayes said. “That is what you have to do. It’s helped everyone a ton. It’s a roller coast for all of us.“One minute, you are just all right, not good, and the next minute you are falling apart. It’s uncontrollable.”Pocatello presented Blackfoot with No. 11 bandanas that were signed by each Pocatello player. The Indians also wore one green sock to remember Baler.“It was even better to honor him with Poky,” Blackfoot coach Liam Pope said. “It was absolute class. It really was perfect.”Baler joined the Blackfoot baseball team this season after spending his first three seasons at Shelley High School. The senior first baseman will also be honored Friday when the Broncos host Idaho Falls High School on senior night.Each Blackfoot player will wear custom No. 11 jerseys for the game, and Baler’s number will be retired from the Broncos’ baseball program.“He’ll always be in my heart,” said Blackfoot senior infielder Rhys Pope. “There won’t be a day where I don’t think about him.”The Blackfoot community has set up a GoFundMe account at https:...

Obituary: Robert 'Buzz' Miller - Twin Falls Times-News

Monday, March 13, 2017

Billie married on May 15, 1962 in Grants and had their first child, Robin, there. They moved to Elko, Nevada in 1965 where their second daughter, Rachelle, was born. A few years later, they moved to Pocatello, Idaho where their third daughter, Renee, was born. Their final move brought them to Jerome on February 28, 1968.During Buzz’s lifetime, he had many occupations, he was truly a jack of all trades. He was a miner, an insurance adjuster for General Motors, a truck driver, an automotive painter, an auto mechanic, car salesman, construction worker, auto parts shop owner, emu rancher, gun cabinet builder, and an antique store owner.But Buzz’s favorite “occupation” was being a grandfather. He loved having his grandchildren around. Teaching them to fish, shoot a gun, and regaling them with grand stories. He was always up for an adventure. His grandchildren, Aidan and Finn, brought him great joy.Buzz loved socializing, dancing and just visiting with anyone. He was well known around Jerome, and will be missed by many.Buzz was preceded in death by his wife of 26 years, Wilma “Billie” Miller; two step children, Terri and Colleen; father, LaVon Miller, mother Page Blackstock, and stepfather, Ed Blackstock; two brothers, Ronald Miller and Ed Miller; and two sisters, Margaret and Mary Miller.

Idaho Patriot Guard Riders to help bring Civil War veteran home - Idaho Statesman

Monday, August 01, 2016

Idaho. Veterans and others wishing to pay respects to Williams are invited to attend, said Bell, a veteran of the Vietnam War.Additional stops will take place in Mountain Home, Twin Falls, Pocatello and Idaho Falls. The remains will pass to a Montana group at Monida, Mont., 80 miles north of Idaho Falls, about 3 p.m. Tuesday.The remains are scheduled to arrive in Maine on Aug. 22.“It feels great to finally do justice by him and give him the honor he deserves — a burial in a national cemetery with full military honors,” said Tom Desjardin, a Maine historian who learned that Williams’ remains were stored at the Oregon hospital.‘PROPER CREDIT’Desjardin, former Maine commissioner of education and an 11th-generation Maine resident, has studied the 20th Maine for more than four decades. He has collected information on the burial sites for 700 of the unit’s veterans, about half of the total.During a meeting last year of Maine Gov. Paul LePage’s Cabinet, Desjardin suggested to state military officials that Williams’ remains be returned to Maine for a proper burial. They agreed.“Because the 20th Maine is such a famous regiment today, people think of the members as heroes and don’t always realize that these were regular people who often died alone, in far-off institutions, without any fanfare,” Desjardin said. “Private Williams helps remind us that many who serve (in all wars) are never given the proper credit they deserve and often end up, literally or figuratively, as a forgotten can on a shelf.”After the war, Williams became a carpenter. In the 1880s he lived in Brainerd, Minn., with his second wife, Nora Carey, according to census records researched by Phyllis Zegers of Roseburg, Ore., a volunteer with the Oregon State Hospital genealogy project.The Williamses later moved to the Tacoma area in what was then Washington Territory. Williams also lived in Everett, Wash., before moving to Portland by 1903.Zegers found newspaper references that Williams spoke at schools in the Portland area between 1914 and 1919. In the 1920 census, the Portland resident was listed as a widower.On April 14, 1922, Williams was admitted to the Oregon State Hospital for the Insane, the same Salem hospital used for the 1975 film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Records indicate he was admitted to the hospital for senility. He died three months later, at age 78.PATRIOT GUARD REACHES A DECADENationally, the Patriot Guard Riders formed in 2005 to counteract a protest waged by members of the Westboro Baptist Church at the funeral of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. John Doles in Chelsea, Okla. Members of an American Legion Riders group in Kansas led a group of veterans and other motorcycle enthusiasts to the funeral to honor Doles, killed in Afghanistan, and later attended other military funerals.Bell expects 20 to 30 riders to participate in each Idaho leg of the trip for Williams. Some will go the entire distance wh...
