FARMINGTON - Bernell Botkin of Farmington passed away on Monday, November 12, 2007, at the Huckstep Rehabilitation Center, at the age of 83 years. He was born on October 4, 1924, at Centerville, the son of the late James B. and Lorene (Miller) Botkin. He was also preceded in death by his first wife, Colleen Hartman Botkin.
