Robert Danner was born in Twin Falls, Idaho on January 24, 1942. A legendary aviator, he passed away September 13, 2004 doing what he loved most, flying in the Frank Church Wilderness.
He grew up and attended school in Stanley. Upon completing high school, Bob served in the Navy during the Vietnam War. It was there that his passion for flying took flight.
Bob was an extraordinary and skilled pilot who knew the Frank Church Wilderness and the Sawtooth Mountains like the back of his hand. He and his beloved wife Dia were known as the “dynamic duo” who touched the lives of countless travelers and friends.
“Danner” as he was called by many, loved to fish and hunt. His projects were as vast as his talents. They ranged from roofing an airplane hanger to casting a fly rod. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Those who knew him well, will feel an empty void.
His smile, his humor, and his generosity of spirit will be missed greatly. His spirit will be felt in the mountains beneath many wings and by dreamers.
The family of Robert Danner would like to express their deep and sincere gratitude to everyone for their support during this difficult time.
Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Archie and Norma Danner.
Bob is survived by his beloved wife and partner, Dia Terese, Gay Wiig, the mother of their three children; his children, David Danner and Kimberly McCain. His son Darren passed away at the age of 11 in 1978. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren, Bobby Danner, Jenny Danner, and Danielle McCain; his four brothers Charles from Boise, Howard, Leonard, Leslie, from Reno, Nevada and his sister Myrna from Elko, Nevada.
It has come to the attention of the family, that some people had difficulty seeing and/or hearing the memorial service held on Saturday, September 18 at Stanley Air Taxi in Stanley.

Andy was born July 17, 1935 in Bismarck, North Dakota, the son of Arthur and Betty Colvin Anderson.
He was in the Air Force for over 25 years and he loved it. He did many different things in that time. He was in the Vietnam War and he was part of the Apollo 11 recovery. He also spent time in Greenland in the dark for six months. He always talked about Samoa, and how he liked it there, and that the women were topless. He lived in Hawaii at the beginning of the service for about two years, and he enjoyed Hawaii very much. He retired as Master Sergeant and received four or five medals.
He was married to his first wife, Jan, later divorced, and they had two boys, Brandon and Bradley. He met Margaret in Las Vegas after he retired. Margaret was 26 years old while Andy was a casino manager in Las Vegas. Margaret was raised in Las Vegas and lived in Las Vegas for five years and then they later moved to Tucson, Arizona. The family later moved to Palm Springs, California and stayed for about 19 years.
The family then moved to Challis, Idaho because Andy thought it would be a good place for health reasons. Andy and Margaret have another son, Andrew Anderson, and he is now 15 years old.
His family said, “We had been in Challis for one week when Andy suddenly passed away. He was a good, sweet, pleasant, loving man, and he was a Christian. He accomplished so many things in his life. He always worked hard and took such good care of us. Andy had been ill for a few years, we were shocked when he passed away. I can’t tell you how much we love Andy. He was our rock and he will be truly missed.”
Family services will be held at a later date.

Leona 'Bean' Luthy Bradshaw
Leona “Bean” Luthy Bradshaw 87, died August 22, 2004, at the Discovery Care Centre in Salmon, Idaho.
Leona was born September 14, 1916 in Rexburg, Idaho. She was the 11th child of Albert and Ellen Luthy. Her early childhood was spent on her parent’s dry farm in Herbert, Idaho.
She went to school in a one-room school in Herbert. One year she was the only girl in a room full of boys. She went to high school at Madison High School in Rexburg, around 1931. She was a sophomore in high school when she dropped out of school and stayed with her sister Florence in Archer, Idaho. She was there to help her sister Florence with her new son Roy Coates in 1935.
She went to work in Barton Flat on the Donahue Ranch. Her family writes: She met my Dad, Ray, at a dance in Mackay around 1935. She always told me Dad could “cut up a rug” while dancing. Since Mom was an “Outside Girl” (from another place-the name locals call foreigners), Mom never had any rest from dancing, and Dad was the main dancer.
Mom finally decided to marry Ray after so many dances, and drove to Arco, Idaho and got married. Bessie and Shirley Larter went with them. This was March 20, 1936.
Ray and Leona worked on the Bradshaw Ranch in Chilly, Idaho and lived by the Bradshaw Buttes and the upper slough ranch. On December 17,1937 Joyce was born. After the sale of the Bradshaw Ranch Ray and Leona moved to Philipsburg, Montana, there they owned the Sapphire Ranch, and also had a timber business, poles and wood.
A son, Keith, was born September 1, 1940. Mom said Joyce and Keith were little rascals when everyone lived on the Sapphire Ranch.
Ray was allergic to timber so they sold the ranch and moved to Seward, Alaska. This was around 1946-1947. Mom said it was quite an experience. It was always okay for Mom to move. Where she went was never a problem as long as she had her two children and her husband. Before she moved back to the good ole Lost River Valley, Ray and Leona worked on a ranch in Tucson, Arizona.
Mom said they ended up working on the ranch they sold. She lived in many cow camps. She liked to cook and watch the wild animals. There wasn’t a day went by that the coffee pot wasn’t on or a pot of beans wasn’t cooking. Leona fed anyone who happened to stop by. She loved Morgan Creek and the dogs and horses.
Mom lost her husband of 55 years in 1991. She then moved into the Pioneer Courts in Challis. She lived there until June 2004 when her family (Keith, Rustan and Charlotte) moved her into the Challis Assisted Living Facility. She loved her new home, quiet and comfortable, and she was with her good friend Sarah.
When she became ill in August 2004, she spent a week in St. Luke's Hospital in Ketchum. On advice from her doctors, she was moved to the Discovery Care Centre in Salmon.
Leona was preceded in death by her husband Ray Bradshaw, August 3, 1991; a daughter, Joyce Bradshaw Fidler, December 17, 2003; five brothers, Henry Louis Luthy, Albert Frederick Luthy, Charles William Luthy, David Milton Luthy, and Ferdinand Thomas Luthy; five sisters, Alice Elizabeth Luthy, Adeline Alvina Luthy, Bertha May Luthy, Ellen Lelena Luthy and Florence Luthy.
Leona is survived by one sister Mabelle Irene Luthy Larter, Mackay, son Keith, daughter in-law Charlotte Bradshaw, Challis; her grandsons Rustan Bradshaw, Challis, Joe (April) Rollog, Bellingham, Washington, Jay Roilog, Boise; granddaughters Jody (Scott) Nall, Ketchikan, Alaska, Janice (Eric) Bonman, Boise, son in-law Phil Fidler, Yelm, Washington, her dear friends, Netta Jones and Sarah Gibbs, Challis.
She passed away August 22 in her son’s arms. Cremation has taken place and memorial graveside services will be September 18 at noon in the Chilly Cemetery.
