    Oh man, I lived in the Silver Valley near Kellogg in 1972 during the Sunshine silver Mine disaster in which 99 miners lost their lives.
    Five children in my 5th grade class lost immediate family of some sort.
    One of my clearest memories of that time is sitting in a swing on the playground and seeing that long tendril of black smoke about 12 mile distant going up into the sky.
    That and all the Hearses driving around weeks later going to one funeral after another.

    This is the first ive heard that they found him dead.
    Sadly I figured that would be the outcome.
    Prayers for his family.
    I lived there in the Silver valley from 1969 to 1975 and live about five hours away now.
    Very sad.
