Jerrad Dale Durfee
He was an active member of the Wendell Community, as a volunteer firefighter and an employee of the City of Wendell. He was an all-around likeable guy, with a happy-go-lucky personality, which many people enjoyed.
He was a very faithful father, along with his wife, Diane Drake Durfee, raising their enthusiastic children, Shelleana 21, Mike 20, Chaz 17, Trevor 14 and Braden 9. Every one of them loved him with all their hearts and will miss going camping, family gatherings and goofing around.
He enjoyed being an assistant baseball coach for Braden’s baseball team and helping Braden design and race pinewood derby cars for Boy Scouts.
At an early age he enjoyed cars, starting with Matchbox and Hot Wheel cars. After graduating from Wendell High School, he continued his passion for cars and went on to Wyoming Tech taking their auto body and mechanics classes. He also earned an Associated Degree in Water Management from the College of Southern Idaho. Working in these professions, he acquired many lifelong friendships.
He will also be greatly missed by his “best bud”, Chancy, his Black Lab.
He is survived by his wife, Diane; his parents, Ynes and Dewey Durfee; and his children, Shelleana, Mike, Chaz, Trevor and Braden.
