Donald Ray Finch, 59, Wilder, passed away unexpectedly April 28, 2018, at his home. Don was born February 4, 1959, in Nampa, the third of five sons of James David (Dave) and Mary Lou Smith Finch.

He hired on with Union Pacific Railroad in the late 1970s and worked there for many years as a section crewman and a welder’s assistant. After leaving the railroad, Don resumed agricultural work, and for the past few years he worked at Asumendi Produce.
Don was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by three children: Chad (Koda), Jessica, and Damon (Jennifer); four grandchildren; four brothers: Marty (Debbie), John (Mary), Greg, and Geoff (Suzanne).
