It is with heavy hearts the Boise ISSA informs you of the passing of Michael Stanton [], current President and Treasurer.  Michael lost his battle against cancer on June 28, 2021, at the age of 69.  Private arrangements are being made under the direction of the Bowman Funeral Parlor of Garden City [].


Michael is known to all who have crossed through the doors of ISSA over the past decade and longer. He was a faithful rock of service and dedication to the community, one of the pillars of support to us all over the years.  He received a Boise ISSA Lifetime Leadership award in the fall of 2020. Boise ISSA interviewed Michael at that time to ask about his years of service, his health, and celebration of his years of service to the community. If you haven’t heard this video, or want to hear his voice again, we encourage you to listen to the recorded podcast [].


Boise ISSA would like to collect any memories or statements you’d like to share so that we can send those to his surviving wife, Barb, along with a care package this coming week.  Please send your memories and statements to


We recognize Michael as a patriot, faithful to his country, one to celebrate and give thanks for as we enter into the Fourth of July holiday.  We’ll miss you Michael, always, and give thanks for who you are and your service to us all here in the Boise valley and beyond.


Sincere Regards,
Ken Dunham on behalf of Boise ISSA officers
