Duane Carlos Ruth
January 16, 1937 ~ March 3, 2017
March 10, 2017
Duane C. Ruth, 80, Bonners Ferry, entered the gates of heaven on March 3, 2017. Service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 11, at Mountain Springs Church in Bonners Ferry.

Duane was born January 16, 1937, in Iowa City, Iowa, to George and Rosie Ruth. He is survived by his loving dedicated wife Dee. Duane has eight children; Jack, Mike, Dave, Deb, Scott, Rick, Rita and Ben, and 10 grandchildren.

He was a welder by trade and spent most of his years in Washington before moving to Bonners Ferry in the year 2000.

Duane was unequally inventive. His talents were many. He could build or repair most anything. An opportunity to lend a helping hand was always an opportunity to share the word of God.

Duane lived his life with purpose and was a devoted Christian with a deep changeless belief or the glorious day of meeting Jesus face to face. Duane will be missed by so many.
