Charles Davidson

Monday, August 10, 2015

Charles Thomas Davidson was born Nov. 20, 1987 to James and Sarah Davidson. He passed away in his sleep the early morning of Aug. 8, 2015, after spending a wonderful day with friends at a concert in Challis, Idaho.

Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015, at Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel, in Mountain Home.

Charles was fourth generation from Mountain Home. At an early age, he became infatuated with dinosaurs and quickly absorbed every fact about dinosaurs -- all the dinosaurs' names and which were vegetarians and those that were meat-eaters.

He graduated from Mountain Home High School in 2006. Charles was a talented athlete, playing varsity football and a member of the Tigers' wrestling team. Charles went to state all four years he wrestled.

Charles was an avid outdoorsman. Fishing, hunting and camping were his favorite activities. He spent many hours looking for shed horns or scouting for the "big" buck. Charles was a crack shot and harvested many a bull elk and trophy mule deer over the years.

Charles was a certified welder. He was currently employed by Citibank. He was a team leader and well respected by his fellow workers.

Charles married Anna Wiley in 2013 (they were later divorced). To this marriage, his daughter, Elsie Jean, was born. Charles was an excellent and devoted father that will be greatly missed by his daughter.

Charles is survived by his daughter Elsie Jean; special friend, Carrie Ann Taylor and son, Hank; his father James (Tamara) Davidson; his mother Sarah Donaldson Corona (Carlos); his uncles Charles (Linda) Davidson and Charles Donaldson; his aunts Jean Jewell; Holly Seltzer; Laurel Herdon; and numerous cousins and friends.

Charles will be missed by all who knew him. We are so blessed that he left footprints in our lives.

In lieu of flowers, an education fund for Elsie has been set up at DL Evans 1600 South Vista Ave., Boise, ID 83705.
