Roger Tyree

Roger T Tyree
18 Dec 1942 - 10 May 2018

Roger Tyree, 75, passed away peacefully on May 10, 2018 in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he moved last summer to be near his family. A long time resident of Boise, Roger was a good neighbor and dear friend to many people. He treasured the companionship and enjoyment he gained from participation in his two beloved hobbies, golf and dance. He loved teaching others to dance. Roger had a great sense of humor and easily made people laugh. He was an accomplished pilot who turned the joy of flying into his profession. He loved the mountains and being outdoors, especially when he was hunting or fishing. Roger will be dearly missed and remembered with love and fondness.

Roger was so much fun at Polk School, and some what lost track of him for many years.   Was sadden to

learn of his passing.   I remember one time when he put a fake sider in I my lunch at Polk School.    Of course

I screamed out.   He laughed for many years of his funny spider.     Then, came his Donuts from Topper Bakery

to my family.   He always stopped by to say hello to my dad, as he thought Mr. Pappas was a character and a half.

​My deepest condolences to everyone in the class that knew Roger.

Roger and I spent quite a bit of time together when we were 14-15.  We shared a very valuable life lesson together.  One day (before we were licensed to drive of course) he came over & picked me up in his mother's car to go for a quick joyride. (She was bathing, and we were rascals) When he came to the intersection of Jackson on Capitol he sailed on without slowing or even looking for traffic.  We were broadsided by an oncoming car on Jackson and came to rest on the lawn of Sacred Heart Academy.  We were shaken and dazed but unhurt.  We did have to face the rath of our Moms (especially Roger).  But it taught us that going through life and not doing the right thing can lead us to unfortunate crossroads. I have thought of that many, many times.

RIP old friend.
