Lon wore many different hats during his 77 years -- son, brother, lawyer, teacher, friend among them -- and all were important to him. But most of all, he cherished his family, his sons Mark, David, Matthew and Shawn, his daughters-in-law and grandchildren, and of course his best friend, his beloved Mary Alice. They shared nearly 52 years together, in Virginia and all over Idaho.

He loved the Idaho mountains, chocolate chip cookies, babies and little children, his dogs, working in the garden, teaching law, which he considered the highlight of his professional career, fishing, country music, and doing anything with Mary Alice. He didn't care for hypocrites, flying, cold weather, pumpkin pie, long lines, and any place that wasn't Idaho.

Lon was a man of quiet generosity. He rarely walked past someone on the street asking for help without slipping them some money, for as he said, he was so fortunate to have never gone hungry. He purchased bags of groceries for clients he knew were struggling. He once bought a small house so that an injured man would have a place for his family to live as long as they needed it. His was a life well-lived.

We his family want to express our deep gratitude to the staff at Paramount Parks in Eagle. They cared for him and all of us with such love and kindness. He grew to consider each of them "my best friend".

We send him on his way, with all our love, knowing he was ready to explore and embrace whatever follows this life, as he was a man of curiosity and questions.

Lon had such a soft spot in his heart for children who suffer. Donations may be made in his name to The Smile Train, PO Box 96231, Washington, D.C. 20090-6231, or to a charity of your choice.
