Jacky Boyd Anderson

Anderson Jacky Boyd Anderson Jacky Boyd Anderson Born August 6, 1940 to Reno and Lillian Anderson in Thornton Idaho. Dad was the 6th of 7 children. Dad graduated from Madison High School in Rexburg, Idaho, enjoying History the most. He also graduated with 4 years of Seminary as well. Growing up in a small town was filled with fun and mischief. His best friend in the world was his cousin Billy Wells. Lots of fun stories from throwing cousin Jerry in the water to make him swim then having to rescue him from actually drowning to one of the boys in their posse making an electric chair and strapping one of their friends in it and throwing the switch. Luckily one of Dad's sister caught them and saved the poor kid from a certain death. They were very adventurous to say the least. Dad joined the Air Guard Reserve, doing training at Fort Ord. He and some other young reserves decided to go on PT and have a few drinks and get matching tattoos. Well they were "drunk as skunks", therefore the best tattoo to get was Flower the Skunk. They all have Flower on their arms. Dad met Mom, Patricia Whiting, and married December 29, 1960. Starting a family in January 1962 with Kristie Ann, then adding Eric LaMont in December of 1964. Living in Rigby, Boise, Pocatello and finally finding their home in Inkom. Mom and Dad loved to golf and travel to Mesquite and the Oregon Coast. Uncle Jim, Aunt Kathy, Uncle Lanny and Aunt Afton were quite often their travel buddies. Dad joined the Idaho State Police April of 1970 and retiring in August of 1995. In his later years on the force he was the Hazardous Materials Specialist for the State Police. Dad loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren so much. Hunting camps, Heise, Lagoon. He tried his best to make sure if they ever needed anything, he was able to provide. Mom passed away in 2007 and Dad has been heart broken ever since. It's been a long 14 years for Dad, but he is now able to hold his angel again and I am sure he is so happy.
