Ada County Farm Bureau News



Longtime Farm Bureau Member Passes
by Don Sonke, Ada County Farm Bureau President

Kuna--Idaho Farm Bureau lost a friend last week with the passing of Bob Day, longtime board member of the Ada County Farm Bureau. Bob was active up until about 2 years ago when he turned 86 and decided he could no longer safely drive to the meetings. Although I asked him a number of times how long he had served I never did get an accurate response. I am guessing over 30 years and his input was always well thought out and accurate.

Bob was born in Boise, November 13, 1921, graduated from Kuna High School in 1939 and married Dorothy Stephens, the sweetest lady ever, in 1943. Bob served in the Navy as a Sea Bee during WWII and returned home to farm and raise registered Jersey cattle until retirement.

He was active in many community and ag activities over the years sharing his wisdom and experiences. He was a great friend and I will miss his company and conversation that we shared as we attended many Farm Bureau events.
