"Tell Everyone I Said 'hello.'"

Ronald Milton Brasher of Meridian, Idaho, passed away February 23. He was 90.
A longtime resident and business owner in Brighton, Ron was a Colorado native born Jan. 3, 1928, in Edgewater, the only son of Milton and Ernestine Brasher. Ron loved sports and music. He started singing at age 5 and was paid four cents per night in the local dance hall in Victor, where his parents played the music.) And he loved rock collecting. He cut and polished rocks and made beautiful jewelry that he gifted to many.
In youth, Ron played and lettered in basketball and football for Bear Creek High School in Lakewood. Back then, the high-school students could drive school buses. So for extra money, Ron drove a school bus his junior and senior years for Jefferson County.
While living in the mountains west of Denver, Ron met his wife, Marie, at a dance hall where his parents' band played the music. Ron was their drummer when he wasn't dancing.
Ron and Marie owned the A & W Restaurant in Brighton for many years. He also was trained to be a glazier, so he made root beer in the summer months and installed glass in the winter to provide for his family of six.
He moved to Boise, Idaho, and later to Meridian where he lived with his daughter, Cindy. His love for music moved him to sing with the Footnotes in Boise, where he served as president for many years. He worked as a private contractor in and around Boise installing windows and doing repairs for local property management companies.
He was an avid hunter and fisherman with his boys, Mike and Jeff, and often told great fish stories. He also wrote and submitted political opinions, some of which were published in the local newspapers.
Survivors are his four children: Mike, of Nampa, Idaho, Jeff, of Boise, Bambi Preble, of Loveland, and Cindy, of Meridian; a son-in-law, Glen Preble (Bambi); and two grandchildren, Aubrey Wilson and Lance Preble, and their spouses, Matt Wilson and Lindsey Preble.
His wife preceded him in death.
Ron's kindness to everyone he met was unsurpassed and felt by those who shook his great hands. He was gentle, kind and sincere, and his eyes sparkled with love and life. Many of his conversations included asking about how all of his family members were doing. He would always say at the end of these conversations, "Tell everyone I said 'Hello.'"
Dad, when you greet everyone in heaven, tell everyone, we say hello.
