Boise Service Missionary
Doug and Linda Minor live in Nampa, Idaho, just a short distance from Boise. They both grew up in the Nampa area, but didn’t get to know each other until after their college days. They we’re married in the Logan Temple in 1979. Doug and Linda are the parents of five children…three sons, and two daughters. Three of their children graduated from BYU-Idaho. Also included in their family are 3 exchange students from Germany, Russia and China, which continue to be an important part of their family.
Doug attended Ricks College in 1966 and then was called to serve in the New England States Mission which included parts of eastern Canada. Upon returning home he attended BYU and earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology. In 1974 Doug returned to Nampa and took over a small RV rental business. Over the next 32 years he developed the business into a RV and Boat retail dealership. For a period of two years he served as the president of the Idaho RV Dealers Association and was also a delegate for the National RV Dealers Association. In 2006 he sold his business and was able to partially retire.
Doug was able to serve as a counselor to two Bishops, before being called to serve as Bishop for a 5 year term. He also enjoyed callings as Elder’s Quorum President, YM’s President and a member of the High Council. His interests include golf, 4 wheeling, fishing, camping with his family and he’s a member of the Boise Valley Corvette Club.
Linda attended college at Ricks and BYU majoring in music. At the end of her third year she returned to Nampa and accepted a position as a Title Examiner for Nampa Land Title which she enjoyed for 6 years. After getting married in 1979 she left her job and became a full-time mom.
She has served as Ward and Stake Organist and has accompanied many choirs and individuals for various programs. Even though her music has been a major part of her church callings, she has also had the opportunity to serve in the Relief Society, Young Women’s and Primary organizations in various capacities. She currently plays the piano for the Primary and is the Ward Organist.
Linda loves riding her bike, sewing and all kinds of handwork and crafts, baking, cooking and reading good books. Linda is also the fisherman in the Minor family, a fact Doug can’t deny. Above all her interests are her 6 grandchildren which she adores.
Doug and Linda have been blessed in so many ways by the Gospel and have received much help and many blessings from our Heavenly Father. They are anxious and look forward to serve Him in this new calling.
