Long time resident Ed Calvin Graybeal, 91, passed peacefully on January 1, 2017 at Grace Assisted Living Center in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Calvin was born the second son of Henry and Lula (Bolton) Graybeal on October 8, 1925 in Castleford on the same site he and Lola lived and raised their family for 67 years.
After Calvin graduated from Castleford High School, he served in the army for two years in the Philippines and Japan during World War II. Shortly after he returned from the army, he met Lola Fields and they were married in the Castleford First Baptist Church on April 4, 1947.
Calvin and Lola worked together on their dairy farm until he retired. They were Arizona snowbirds for 21 years. They were active in their church and the community their entire lives. Calvin moved to Grace Assisted Living Center after his wife Lola passed away.
He loved his family, friends, and fishing. Calvin never knew a stranger and always had a joke or story to tell.
Survivors include his five children: Don (Silvia) Graybeal and Mike (Cheryl) Graybeal of Castleford; Karen (Bill) Garrison of Filer; Lisa (Kirk) Ihander of Bend, OR; Debbie (Steve) Pugh of McMinnville, OR. He also leaves 11 grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Lola and his brother David.
The Graybeal family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the Idaho Home Health and Hospice staff and to his Grace Assisted Living Center family.
Memorial contributions can be made in Calvin's name to Castleford First Baptist Church or a charity of your choice.
