Item Description

Limited Edition by Lloyd M Bucher, who was born in Pocatello, Idaho. He was raised by his father, grandparents, various other family members, his father again, then drifted through a series of Catholic orphanages in Idaho until he read a magazine article about Father Flanagan's Boy's Town in Nebraska. He wrote to Father Flanagan and was surprised when he wrote back to Bucher. Bucher was accepted at Boy's Town in the Summer of 1941, and for the rest of his life considered it to be his home. Bucher flourished at Boy's Town, making honor roll the majority of his time there and playing football, basketball, track and baseball. Like most young men during World War II, he dropped out his senior year to enlist in the Navy, serving the last year of the war and for 2 years afterward (1945-1947). Born in Idaho and orphaned as a child, Lloyd Marvin Bucher was raised at Boys Town, Neb. At Boys Town, he told the priests that he wanted to be in the Navy. He majored in geology at the University of Nebraska and met his future wife, Rose Rohling, on a blind date. He was commissioned in the Navy in 1953. Commander Bucher retired in 1973. Besides his wife, surviving are two sons, Michael, of Southern California, and Mark, of Hawaii. Mr. Bucher spent his last years in Poway, Calif., near San Diego, where he lived in a secluded ranch house. He grew avocados, studied art and painted watercolors.
