BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Hundreds of relatives, friends and supporters are honoring the life of Idaho political legend Pete Cenarrusa at his funeral in Boise. Secretary of State Ben Ysursa delivered the eulogy for his mentor Friday, telling about 600 people gathered at a downtown Boise cathedral that Cenarrusa lived by the golden rule: He loved his family, country and ancestral home.

For Cenarrusa, the ancestral roots reach to the Basque region in northern Spain and southern France. Cenarrusa died Sunday at age 95. He was the longest serving elected official in Idaho history, a span featuring nearly 36 years as Secretary of State. Cenarrusa was also a longtime sheep rancher. Ysursa joked that in Pete’s heaven “sheep eat coyotes.” He was buried Saturday in Bellevue, not far from his hometown of Carey.
