Note - Surname spelling for this person has
been seen both ways.  The headstone and Idaho
Death Index show Willits.
and this newspaper article show Willets.  Also,
the Western States Marriage Index shows his wife's
name to be Winkleman instead of Winhelman as mentioned below.
Any confirmation either way would be appreciated.
Also, Tucker cemetery mentioned below is the Lower
Boise Cemetery, near Parma, Idaho.
