Rulon Schara, 80 years old, passed away August 6, 2022, in Rigby, Idaho. He was born in Rose, Idaho (near Blackfoot) on October 15, 1941 on his grandparents farm. The family relocated from time to time during his childhood and during his early school years, but Rulon was always a good student. When he was a senior in high school his family moved to Pingree, Idaho and he attended Snake River High School. He graduated from there in 1960 and attended Idaho State College.

In June 1962 he married his high school sweetheart, Cherlene Hill. They celebrated their 60th anniversary this summer. They are the parents of six children. Rulon loved his family, and his four living children and grandchildren express tender moments of time spent with him. He especially enjoyed the babies and was thrilled with two new little great-grandchildren born this summer. When he talked about his plans for future hunting, fishing and traveling, they always included plans with the children.

It was a shocking surprise when Rulon passed away on August 6, 2022, at home in his bed. He had heart surgery, but it went well, and everything looked promising. He was making plans for fishing, hunting, traveling and spending time with Sherma and Dean (his sister and her husband) this summer.

His funeral service will on Saturday, August 13th at 2:00 PM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fort Benton, Montana. To read the complete obituary and share condolences, visit the Croxford Funeral Home website.
