  • Sheldon Theodore Rio passed away on January 26, 2014, at the age of 86, in Bozeman, Mont., in the home of his son, Rodger. He was born May 9, 1927, in the Soo Line railroad depot in Raymond, Mont., to Andrew Rio, an immigrant from Norway, and Alice Rio, a German immigrant from Russia. For the rest of his life, he would claim that being born in a train depot explained his strong attraction to trains. He grew up on the Hi-Line with his parents and five siblings in a two-room homestead without plumbing or electricity.
