Memorial fund honors BCHS grad

  The Boise City High School Class of 1991 has established the Judd Miller Memorial Fund to honor their classmate who died in late 2004. The fund will be used to provide the Junior/Senior Beef Showmanship buckles at the Cimarron County Livestock Show annually.

Judd attended Boise City schools from kindergarten through 12 th grade.

He was a good friend, and he left an impression on everyone he met. He was involved in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, earning the rank of Eagle Scout. He participated in 4-H and Future Farmers of America, and served his class as Student Council Representative. He also was a member of St. Paul 's United Methodist Church and was involved in the MYF group as a teen-ager.

Judd was a devoted husband and father. At his sudden death, Judd left behind his wife, Deha, and three daughters: Sarah, now age 13; Maggie, now age 4; and Dallie, unborn at the time and now age 1.

The Class of 1991 decided a memorial through the livestock show would honor the memory of their lifelong friend who participated in the event during his school years, and also express to his family the value of that friendship. His friends also hope the buckles will be a tangible reminder of the memory of Judd for the recipients: a man who appreciated animals, loved life and lived it to the fullest.

Other people interested in contributing to the fund can give their donations to the Judd Miller Memorial Fund at the First State Bank in Boise City ; or memorial donations can be sent to the fund in care of Wes Woolman, HCR 2 Box 79, Boise City, OK 73933.
