Frank Lara, one of 12 children, was born in Alamo, Texas to Silvano Lara and Maria Cruz. He migrated with his parents and extended family throughout the west following the harvests.
The family eventually settled in Acequia, Idaho. Frank loved his little Acequia town, his elementary school and friends. He lived in Rupert, Idaho for many years then moved to Boise, Idaho in 2000 to be closer to his children and a bigger art world.
Frank had four children Monica Lara, Frank Lara Jr., Benjamin Lara and Rachel Lara. He worked hard and played harder. Frank's passions were his art, his family, friends, and a good time.
He is survived by his four children, five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
Rock and roll Dad, we love you.
