Gary E. Morford

Gary E. Morford was born in Boise, Idaho on February 15, 1943 to Madeline Lois Hedrick Morford and Ralph Willis Morford.  He died on November 12, 2015.

Gary graduated from Borah High School in 1962 and went to college for 6 months at BYU because of a friend of his.  After, he came home to Boise to attend BJC.
He married Christine Elizabeth Bonini on June 5, 1965 at First Christian Church across from BJC.  They resided in Boise.

Gary had many small jobs as a boy.  He also fought forest fires, was a logger, sold vacuum cleaners, and was an agent for Prudential from 1967 to 2011.

Some of his hobbies included camping, hunting birds, deer, and elk, motorcycles, ATV's and snowmobiles.  He liked to build simple birdhouses.  He also loved RVing with his wife and traveling; enjoying several trips with his dear friends Carmen and Darrel Nagel from Oregon.

Gary was a member of Cross of Christ.  He was also in some business organizations for a while, but eventually there wasn't enough time.  He helped his son, Tim, with boy scouts.  His main interests were his home, family, and the outdoors.

He was preceded in death by his oldest daughter Carrie, who died at 8 years old, his parents, Madeline and Ralph, and his oldest brother, Bud, and Bud's son Bryan. He is survived by his wife, Christine, son, T im, daughter, Amy (Justin), and wonderful granddaughter, Natanee. He is also survived by one brother, Fred in Florida, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, one nephew, most of whom live in Boise, Meridian, or around Idaho.

Our family wishes to extend its deepest gratitude to all of Gary's doctors and their nurses who tried so hard to help improve his health as each new issue came upon him. Our thanks to both St. Luke's Hospitals, Southwest Idaho Advanced Care Hospital, and especially to Life Care of Treasure Valley, all their staff and residents who became a second family to him; he was thankful for and loved every one of you.

A service will be held Thursday, November 19, 2015 at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church at 1:30 p.m. A viewing will be held Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at Alden-Waggoner Funeral Chapel from 3 to 8 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, 11655 W. McMillan Rd., Boise, Idaho, 83713.

He was a kind, loving husband, father, and grandfather, who helped anybody with anything he could.  He is greatly loved and missed terribly, but we know he is safe with Christ Jesus our Lord.
