Remembering Idahoans who died on 9/11

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED May 15, 2014

The 9/11 Memorial Museum was dedicated Thursday in New York City. The Gem state was also deeply touched by the September 11th attacks when four people with Idaho ties died as a result of that day.

Lt. Commander Ron Vauk was originally from Nampa. He died on the second day of a two-week mission at the Pentagon. There's a tree growing in his memory at Nampa High School.

Brady Howell, from Eastern Idaho, was a civilian worker for the Chief of Naval Intelligence. He also died in the Pentagon attack.

Sandy Conaty Brace died in the north tower of the World Trade Center. She lived in Idaho for about 13 years working for both Simplot and the State of Idaho. She had moved to New York after falling in love.

And Mountain Home Airman Evander Andrews was the first American to die as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. He died in a forklift accident while helping build an airstrip in the Persian Gulf. Andrews is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
