Burial will be in the McRea Cemetery following services with Military Honors by the American Legion Lloyd Shaw Post #67 and the Idaho Honor Guard. Dare Robert Anderson was born on April 14, 1920 in Leadore, Idaho the oldest of four children born to John and Emma (Petersen) Anderson. His mother passed away when he was just nine years old. He went to live with his aunt and uncle, Mabel and Jack Petersen, on Lee Creek near Leadore. He attended school through the eighth grade and then went to work for area ranches, the sawmill and was mining at Gilmore when he was drafted into the Army. In February of 1942 Dare found himself traveling across the United States receiving his military training and then boarding a British ship that would take him to Egypt and India. He was stationed at Burma where his sawmill experience allowed him to cut timber for the Burma roads that were being built. He contracted malaria and was sent back to the states where he was honorably discharged in September of 1945. He returned to Leadore with his new bride Joyce Park. The two were married in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 22, 1945. They made their home in Leadore on the family ranch where they raised their four children: Russell, Mary, Albert and Kathy. Dare leased the ranch from his uncles and acquired it over the years. He retired from ranching in 1992 and turned the ranch over to his daughter and son-in-law Kathy and Ralph McRea but continued to make sure they were still running everything just as he would have up until just recently. He had a few hobbies over the years that included woodworking and card- playing especially pinochle, but his joys were hunting and fishing. Even more so, he enjoyed sharing and teaching the sport to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dare was an inspiration to many young people and took great pride in sharing his skills and knowledge with anyone who showed an interest. All who knew him will miss his wit and sense of humor. Dare is survived by his wife Joyce Anderson of Leadore, Idaho; two son’s: Russell and Dixie Anderson of Boise, Idaho, Albert Anderson of Beaverton, Oregon; two daughters: Mary and Mark Hickey of Boise, Idaho and Kathy and Ralph McRea of Leadore, Idaho; seven grandchildren: David Anderson of Oakland, California, Mindy and Keron Francis of Boise, Idaho, Jaime and Corey Smith of Fresno, Texas, Jeff Hickey of Boise, Idaho, Becky Hickey of Boise, Idaho, Beth and Ken McCullough of Ammon, Idaho, and George and Malinda McRea of Idaho Falls, Idaho; nine great-grandchildren; one sister Ruth Smith of Leadore, Idaho; many nieces, nephews and other “kids” that also called him “grandpa”. His parents, two brothers, Russell and Bobby Anderson, and one great-grandson Terrance Dare McRea preceded him in death. Memorials are suggested to the Leadore EMT’s at P.O. Box 51, Leadore, Idaho 83464 or to donor’s choice.
