Gary Edgington Obituary

Gary Lee Edgington, Sr.

10/11/45 – 01/12/2022

He will have a private burial at the VA Cemetery in Boise


Gary passed away peacefully after a long battle with COPD and lung cancer.

He was involved with many things during his 77 years. He proudly joined the Navy at 17 and was a radioman aboard the USS Independence while serving in Vietnam. Gary was a flooring contractor while living in San Diego, a long-haul truck driver for 20 years after moving to Idaho and received many safety and mileage awards along the way, and finally retiring with the Brown Bus Co.

Gary was involved with Y Indian Guides, Boy Scouts, and an avid soccer fan when our boys were younger living in San Diego. He was very supportive of community activities and enjoyed helping with the Poway Junior Woman’s Club, an organization that his wife belonged to. He enjoyed watching Bryan’s high school band performances; Gary Jr.’s bike road races, Matt’s soccer competitiveness and spending time teaching Sean. After long days at work, he would come home and carry Sean down to his HAM radio shack and held him while he talked across the world, which he achieved an extra class HAM operator license.

Gary is preceded in death by his parents Roger and Naomi, brother Michael, and grandson Henry. He is survived by his wife Jeanne of 55 years; four sons: Bryan (Tawnya) of San Diego, Gary Jr. (Angela)of Oldtown, Id., Matt (Kate) Boise, Sean (Haley) Meridian, 20 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Gary fought the good fight, never refusing to give up, and was loved by his family. Love you hubby!
