Caron Funeral
Rites Will Be
Held In Nampa


     Funeral services for 10-year-old Rene Richard Caron, who died yesterday at a Great Falls, Mont., hospital, as a result of burns sustained when a gasoline container exploded while he was trying to light a fire, will be held at St. Paul's Catholic church at Nampa Monday morning at 10 o'clock.  Burial will be in the Mount Calvary cemetery at Nampa.
     The lad's body will arrive at Nampa tomorrow morning and will be at the Robinson funeral chapel.  A Rosary service will be held at the chapel Sunday evening at 7:30.
     The boy is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rene Caron and a younger brother, William, besides his grandparents and a number of aunts and uncles.  The Carons are former Caldwell residents and Mr. Caron was formerly the manager of the Falk's Caldwell store.
     The accident occurred at the Caron home at Great Falls where the family has been living for the past year.  Mrs. Caron sustained serious burns to her hands in a futile attempt to save her small son.
