Bryce Clark Gochnour

1936 - 2022

Bryce Clark Gochnour went to be with his precious Lord Jesus on August 8, 2022, after succumbing to the complications of Lymphoma. He loved the Lord, his family and friends, his native state of Idaho, and especially the young patients he treated as an Orthodontist.  He was a sports fanatic and adored his Boise State Broncos.

Born and raised in Burley, Idaho, Bryce was the seventh of eight children to Clyde and Bertha Gochnour.  As a “Burley Bobcat”, he excelled in high school baseball and basketball before attending the University of Utah. As a freshman in college, he met Luanne, the love of his life and wife of 62 years. Bryce graduated with an engineering degree and worked for General Electric’s defense division for five years.  Following his heart, he pursued a career change and attended the University of San Francisco School of Dentistry to become an Orthodontist.  It turned out to be his true-calling, combining his love for people and a pursuit of perfection into making beautiful smiles.

Bryce and his young family moved to Boise in 1967 to start his Orthodontic practice. When not straightening teeth, he had a green thumb for amazing flower beds, lush gardens, and manicured lawns. Bryce played competitive tennis into his 80’s but could never master the never-ending frustrations of golf.

Bryce was a dedicated husband, wonderful father, an exemplary man of integrity, and never turned down an opportunity to play with his kids or grandkids.  We will miss his big smile, enthusiastic greetings, chuckles when being teased, meltdowns on the golf course, and fiery spirit watching Boise State games.

He is survived by Luanne, his loving wife, three children Derek, Mark, and Kara, seven grandchildren, older sister Beverly Johnson and older brother Ralph Gochnour.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in his memory to your church ministry.  A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, September 3rd, at 5:00 pm in a casual, outdoor setting at Eagle Hills Golf Club.
