Paul W. Idso

Obituary Condolences

Retired Army sergeant major
We call it the circle of life; it isn't complete until the ends meet. The 29th of March, 2008, a magnificent circle came to a close. Very gently, without fear, Paul W. Idso's soul drifted into another dimension. Another world, a great transition made.
Paul was preceded in death by his wife, Norma L. Idso; and his son, Paul Douglas Idso.
He was born Aug. 1, 1928, in Myrtle Point, Ore., to Omer and Genvie (Watts) Idso. Paul spent 23 years in the Army, retiring as a sergeant major. 
Survivors include his five daughters, Linda Smarr and husband Steve, Barbara Blankenship and husband David, Debra Reynaga and husband Gabe, Charlotte Garcia and husband Simon, and Sandra Kelly and husband James; 20 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren. 
A memorial service will be conducted at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 2, 2008, at the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Andy McGown officiating. 
Cremation will take place locally at PCS, entrusted to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.
