Joseph Denver Kinyon, age 64 of Castleford, Idaho passed away on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, at home with his family after a long battle with cancer.
Joe was born March 19, 1955, in Twin Falls County to David Worth and Shirley Ann Kinyon. He grew up in Castleford on the family farm and ranch with his parents and sister. After graduating from high school, he married Colleen Hawkins on December 15, 1973. Together they had three children. They farmed and ranched and raised their family in Castleford. They were later divorced.
Together Joe and his parents worked the farm and ranch for years. After Shirley’s passing, Joe and David continued to grow the family business with his children and grandchildren. David was not only a good father to Joe, but an excellent business partner.
Joe was a very talented man with a silver tongue. He built a hell of a business and made it look easy. In addition to being a skilled cattleman, he had may other past times. He loved to go fishing at Roseworth and Salmon Dam, go four-wheeler riding all over southern Idaho and down into Nevada, and go hunting for anything that was in season, especially antelope. He also loved to water ski, snow ski, and oil paint. He had a garden and loved plants and flowers like his mother did. He had faith in God and always listened to Mother Nature before anything else. He will always be a cowboy.
Joe is survived by his father, David Kinyon; daughters, Stacy Kinyon (Tracy Vulgamore) of Castleford, Amy Weighall (Jim) of Buhl, and Cammy Kinyon of Buhl; grandchildren, Tanya Lanham (Rob), Tara Cornwell (Austin), Tyler Weighall, Kreagan Bower, Kennedi Weighall, and Waylon Kinyon; great-grandchildren, Dalley Lanham and Nash Lanham, and sister, Lou Ann Burkhalter (Christy).
He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; mother, Shirley Kinyon; an infant sister, and granddaughter, Hallie Weighall.
