Vaughn David Boots Obituary
1945 ~ 2016
V. Dave Boots, 71, of Boise, ID passed away Monday, July 25, 2016 at home with his wife by his side. Dave was born in Red Bluff, CA. He worked with his dad in the family business, Boots Trucking. Later, he moved to Idaho where he met Linda. Dave and Linda were blessed to recently celebrate 38 year of marriage. Dave's greatest job was hauling logs because it allowed him to be in the mountains.
He was blessed to have two wonderful sons and their families: Dave Jr., Kari, Daniel and Kalee, and Lee, Laura, Dylan and Cate. He loved hearing about their busy lives.
Our little dog, Shorty, has been a great comfort and companion to Dave. It is Dave's wish to have his ashes and Shorty's ashes spread together upon Shorty's death. His wish is for the ashes to be spread in the mountains overlooking Prairie, ID, a place that has brought much joy to Dave, Linda and Shorty.
Dave is survived by his wife, Linda; his sons and their families, as well as his siblings: Terry, Becky (Ed), Janelle (Jack), Lorilee (Donald), Ted (Stacey), and numerous nieces and nephews. His parents, Lorin and Lucille, and an older brother, Byron, precede him in death.
There will be a memorial service at our home in Boise, August 13, 2016 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. where family and friends are welcome to enjoy lunch and share memories of Dave.

My most memorable event with Dave was in 1963 when he dropped by my house on 3rd Street to see what I was up too as i was underneath my car. Dave was driving one of Boot's Semi Trucks, one for hauling cattle, and it was full of cattle! The truck took up the entire width of the street; neighbors came out to see what was going on, Dave jumped out of his truck and was hollering/ laughing  at me about having my long  legs sticking out from under my car which gave him no room to travel down the narrow  street... There were of course a few expletive words... I will remember that enjoyable day with Dave  for ever....
