Fred and Jane built and managed the Town Center Motel on the Latimore family property before moving to California for opportunity there. They lived 20 years in the greater San Francisco area before returning in retirement to Mtn. Home. Traveling from Idaho to Arizona, they lived the “snowbird” life until settling into the Mountain Home area enjoying their family and friends.
