C. Wayne Tindall

Monday, December 17, 2012

C. Wayne Tindall passed away in his home on Dec. 15, 2012, surrounded by his family.

Wayne was born on Dec. 4, 1954, in Boise, Idaho. He grew up in Mountain Home where he spent his childhood at Tindall's Furniture Store and Crane Lake Ranch, both owned by his parents.

In 1972, he married his high school sweetheart, Susan Andrews. Together they had three children.

He worked hard to provide for his family while serving in the United States Army, the Army Corps of Engineers and Mountain Home Irrigation District.

He was most fulfilled by his position as director of the Elmore County Highway District, where he worked for almost 20 years. His intelligence, attention to detail, and pursuit of perfection made him excel at anything he did.

He was a quietly spiritual man with a profound knowledge of the Bible and love of God.

His priority was always his family. He shared deep and loving friendships with his wife and children, teaching them by example the importance of loyalty, morality and integrity.

He enjoyed documentaries, music, BSU football, hunting and fishing. He spent all the time he could on a motorcycle, riding 100,000s of miles with his wife on back.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Ivan Tindall, his grand-daughter, Marrissa Sue Bauer, and his mother, Jessie Tindall.

He is sincerely missed by his wife, Susan Tindall, his children, Jason and Mariann (Chris) Tindall, Rebecca Tindall, and Cassandra and Aaron Barrington, his grandchildren, Jessica, Breanna, Ryan, and Jaira, his nieces, Teresa and Lori Tindall, and his father, Chet Tindall.

In lieu of funeral services, a casual party in Wayne's honor will be held at the Elk's Lodge on Friday, Dec. 21, at 5 p.m. for all who knew him.
