Kenneth "KT" Erwin Tindall
Kenneth (“KT”) Erwin Tindall age 65 passed away on December 13, 2018 at the family ranch in Grasmere. Ken was born on February 18, 1953 in Boise, Idaho. He was the fourth child of William I and Margaret Tindall. Ken attended schools in Bruneau and Owyhee, Nevada, but always maintained that the ranch in Grasmere was “home”. He also attended the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls.
On March 17, 1982 he married Donna Brown in Mountain City, Nevada. Ken and Donna enjoyed their years on the ranch working, riding, trapping, and hunting. Ken and Donna later divorced but remained friends. Their daughter Kathrine “Katie” Jane was born in 1982. She was joined by her sister Eliza LeeAnn in 1987.
Ken was involved in many Owyhee County organizations. He put in countless hours of service to Owyhee County as a member of the Owyhee County Posse beginning in the early 1990’s. He was a member of the Owyhee Cattlemen’s Association, serving as their President in 2002. He was also a member of the Owyhee County Fair Board for many years and was the current Vice-Chairman. The week at the Fair in August was always the highlight of his summer. Ken was also involved in the Head Start Program for several years.
Ken was a “happy-go-lucky” friendly kind of guy. He always had a smile on his face, time to visit with a friend, or share a story about his life experiences with a group of strangers.
Kenneth is survived by his daughters Katie (Justin) Owens of Riner, Virginia and Eliza (Weston) Jones of Owyhee, Nevada. Grandchildren Willow and Dresden Owens and Walter and Brogain Jones of Owyhee, Nevada. He is also survived by his sister Greta Tindall of Ash Fork, Arizona, and brothers Eugene (Mary) and David Tindall of Bruneau. Along with several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister-in-law Celia, and his ex-wife Donna.
