Weldon Karr

    Weldon W. "Budd" Karr, 68, went to be with our Lord and loved ones Thursday October 29, 1992, in a Caldwell care center after a long and valiant battle with cancer.  At his request there will be no service.  Cremation is under the direction of Flahiff Funeral Chapel.  Private inurnment will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell, Wednesday, November 4, 1992.
    "Budd" was born February 7, 1924, in Phelps County, Nebraska, the son of Dwight and Elsie Karr.  He attended Riverview School and Overton High School.  The family moved to the Nampa-Caldwell area in 1939.
     Budd served in the Army during World War II.  After the war he drove long-haul trucks for many years.  He worked for Falens Fruit Ranch for 14 years as a truck driver and orchardist until cancer forced his retirement in February 1976.  Budd and Betty Lutz were married on August 22, 1983.
    Budd was a free spirit who enjoyed the outdoors, camping, fishing, hunting, animals and all living things and had a special knack for making flowers and plants flourish.  His pal was his little dog Buffy.  He enjoyed fixing and making things with his hands.  He had a great sense of humor.
    He is survived by his wife Betty of Caldwell; mother Elsie Karr, Caldwell; sister Phyllis Pied, Boise; stepson Todd Lutz, Caldwell; daughter Deanna Gentis, Burley; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Elmer and Maxine Parker, Boise; three great nephews, one great niece and two great-great nephews all of Califoria.
    His father Dwight Karr preceeded him in death in 1974.  His only niece, Carolyn Lopez, died September 15, 1991.
    Memorials may be sent to your favorite charity.
    The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff at Cascade Care Center for their tender and loving care.
