Howard Bohnsack 10/28/2022

Howard Lynn Bohnsack “Papa” was born on October 24, 1946 in Sheridan, Wyoming where he was raised on a ranch. His family moved to Lewiston, Idaho where he would graduate from Lewiston High School in 1964. Two years later, he moved to the Tri-Cities, WA where he began working at Boise Cascade. He worked for 46 years at Boise in the container division before retiring due to health issues. He later passed away in the home he built for his family on October 28, 2022.

His joys in life were centered around his church and his family. He supported and attended anything in which his children and grandchildren were involved.

He enjoyed participating in and watching sports. He would often attend local high school sporting events alone “just for something to do”, as he would say.

Howard had a talent for crafting and building; whether it be a new and unique recipe in the kitchen or recreating famous landmarks out of cardboard and wood for his church’s banquets, wood carving, or making bows. His greatest project was the home he built with and for his family.

Howard will be greatly missed by: his wife of 56 years, Linda Bohnsack
Son, Chad Bohnsack
Daughters Tiffany Bohnsack and Joanna Metzger
Son-in-law Richard Metzger
Grandchildren Ryan (his best buddy), Lindy, and Andrew Metzger
Brothers Gary, his wife Cheryl and Merle Bohnsack

He was preceded in death by his parents Maxine Bohnsack and Merle L. Bohnsack and his brother Terry Bohnsack

Viewing will be held an hour before the service which will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 4, 2022 at Riverview Baptist Church.

My family2014 Reunion News:

In the last 50 years since high school, I have worked for and worked as the following:

I worked at Boise Cascade for 45 years then retired about four years ago. I have been married to the my wife, Linda, 48 years. We have three children and three grandchildren.

We've lived in the same house for the last thirty some years.

We've attended and have been active in the same church for the last forty some years.

We have traveled a bit. We have been to the Holy Land, Denmark and Egypt, as well as some in the United States, including Disney World in Florida, Chicago, Yellowstone National Park, Montana, Wyoming, Missouri and, of course, Idaho and Washington.

I did retire in 2010 and try to keep busy with woodworking. I work on traditional archery making longbows and recurve bows as well as reloading shells and collecting guns. We do a little swimming at the health club and spend lots of time with our children and grandchildren.
