Donald R. Belcher

September 13, 1927 ~ July 17, 2017 (age 89)
Donald Ray Belcher passed away and joined his eternal companion on July 17 2017, at his home.
Don was born on September 13 1927, in Green River WY. He married the love of his life in Rock Springs on October 13th 1951.
He came to Pocatello in 1958 working as a welder for the UPRR. In 1959 he went on to work for FMC, later retiring from there in 1990.
Don served in the Navy and was active in WWII. He loved to give to charities and his church and was a long time member in the Knights of Columbus.
Don never missed an opportunity to display his wit and humor. His passion for his K-9 companions was only outdone by his desire to be with his wife. He loved and missed her every day. Together they enjoyed camping, fishing, and bowling.
You will be forever and always be deeply missed!!
"Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is great in heaven."
Don was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Elinor, his daughter Barbara, and his wife Mary.
