Richard Donald “Dick” Bonney, 91, of Union died June 1. The funeral will begin at 2 p.m. Thursday June 8 at the United Methodist Church in Union. Burial will follow at the Union Cemetery.

Mr. Bonney was born April 1, 1915, to Richard Herman and Sara Louise Brannian Bonney in Bellingham, Wash. The family arrived in Union on Jan. 5, 1920, via the short track railroad from Union Junction to Union. His father built and ran the fish hatchery on Catherine Creek. He helped transport fingerling trout to the Minam River, drove horses from Union to Halfway, and spent many days enjoying the outdoors.

He served in the Navy during World War II, and on July 23, 1946, he married Gertrude “Trudy” Roberts. They moved to Union and spent the rest of their lives there. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and camping, poetry, art and woodworking. He became a carpenter and cabinet maker but never gave up his other interests.

Survivors include many nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Memorials may be made to the Union United Methodist Church in care of Daniels Chapel of the Valley, 1502 Seventh St.
