    David E. Statler, 66, Orofino

    The common comment about David E. Statler is he lived life as he wanted. He lived a life of kindness and doing right by the “pack”, those that were either family through relation or like family through relationship. And let’s not forget the dogs he had over the years who were his best buddies, his constant companions and ever loyal to him. Those of us who knew David were lucky. We have years of great stories to tell thanks to the life he led. Quite suddenly he departed us February 27, 2019.
