I am saddened to pass word that Foster Mayo, who worked and volunteered many years with the Bonners Ferry Police Department and the Boundary County Sheriff's Office, passed away this morning, May 24, 2020, of cancer.

An obituary and arrangements are pending. Our deepest condolences to his family and many friends.
