Hi,
I'm assuming that he died in Bannock County. If he did, you can request a copy of his obit from Random Acts Genealogical Kindness. Go to www.raogk.org, read guidelines, choose Idaho, choose Bannock Co and select the volunteer. Successful Searching!

I'm not sure how recent (dates) you can get, but I've found MANY of my family news articles (I grew up in Pocatello) in Ancestry.com's newspaper archive in the Idaho State Journal. [births, church activities, deaths, social & school, etc.]

I would search with just his last name, Crystal, first and then try variations of his name/initials.

The search with quotes around "Idaho state journal" in the More (field) brought up several references to Thomas Jay Crystal.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm not a member of Ancestry but will give it a try and see if I'm able to access the information. Appreciate your reply.

I am Jay's oldest daughter, what kind of information are you looking for? Also I would love to know the relationship you both had with my Dad.

Cheryl,
Thank you for the reply to my posting of 2006. Since posting the request my husband has been in touch very briefly with one of your sisters, Julie (2009) Julie sent a short letter informing us of your father's passing and included his funeral memorial. My husband was in the service with your father, stationed aboard the USS Chicksaw (1956-1960 time frame). They were "good buddies" at the time and often went on shore leave with each other while in different ports. My husband had tried over the years to locate your father, as when he left the ship there were some medical issues, with no luck.

Cleo,
It was great to hear a little about the life my Dad didn't talk about much. I appreciate your response and am glad you got the information you were looking for.
