Donald Vogel

As was his nature, Don passed quietly from this life to the next on Dec. 31, 2006 surrounded by family and friends. Don was born Feb. 5, 1924 in Cambridge, Idaho to Charles and Hattie Vogel. He was raised in Cambridge and graduated from Cambridge High School in 1942. The Army Air Corps then used more than three years of his life. He served in the Pacific Theatre and in the occupation of Japan. In 1946 he joined First Security Bank of Idaho in Boise. 43 years later, he retired from First Security as Chief Auditor/Examiner for their Idaho branches. On Jan. 1, 1948, in the first marriage ceremony performed for the year in Boise, Don married Vicki King. They resided in Boise for most of their married life. Vicki traveled with Don for many years when he was auditing banks throughout the intermountain region. Don was a long time active member of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Boise. He was a member and past President of the Boise Exchange Club and was a member of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives). He loved sports of all sorts and was very involved in Boise State University Athletics for many years. He served as President of the Bronco Athletic Association for the 92-93 term. One of his most treasured moments occurred on April 29, 1994 when he was inducted into the BAA Hall of Fame and received the "Bronze Bronco" award. Don had a sweet, gentle spirit and that famous smile that warmed your heart. He was loved by everyone who knew him. He will be greatly missed. Don was preceded in death by his wife Vicki; his mother and father; his brothers, Bob, Bert, Thomas and Ellis and his sister, Margaret. Survivors include his sister-in-law, Sue Vogel, brother-in-law, Lester King and numerous nieces and nephews. We would like to thank the people who helped care for Uncle Don, the nurses and aides at Willow Park, Capitol Care Center and Hearts for Hospice. Remembrances are suggested to the Don and Vicki Vogel Athletic Endowment Scholarship at Boise State University. Viewing will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007 at Cloverdale Funeral Home. Services will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 2920 Cassia in Boise on Friday, Jan. 5, 2007 at 2 p.m. Interment will follow at Cloverdale Memorial Park. Services are under the direction of Cloverdale Funeral Home.
