Dear Members:

It is with heavy heart to announce that we learned that Roland (Butch) Anderson died Friday, June 30th, 2017 in a motorcycle accident according to the Wilderness Ranch Owners Association web site:

Butch served on the Board of Directors with IRWA from 2004 to 2017. He was a very active board member, and in his community where he served as water & wastewater operator for Wilderness Ranch Owners Association and many other systems that he helped take care of as their certified operator, and close friend of IRWA.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to his family, grandchildren, and friends along with our deepest sympathy to the Wilderness Ranch Owners Association where Butch served as their main certified operator for many years. Butch will leave a void that will be hard to replace and will be deeply missed.

Butch’s family will be hosting a Celebration of Life on Thursday, July 6th from 1 pm to 7 pm at 74 Meadow Lane, Boise, ID 83716. The celebration will be the way Butch would have liked it…non-formal. As Butch’s family states, “Bring a beer, Bring a chair, Bring a story. Join us in celebrating this extraordinary man.”

The Idaho Statesman honored Butch with in an article, highlighting his many achievements, his generosity, and his unyielding commitment to his community. Click here to read the article on the Statesman’s website.
