A good friend and mentor, I will remember you always. One of the best men in my life to have known. Sadly missed always loved and respected. God bless the Amyx family. My prayers for peace and understanding in this time of grief and anguish.
My sister (Annie McLeod) and I first knew the family at the Community Christian Center. Our prayers go out to the family!
My first experience with Martha Amyx is when Jay Amyx was elected to be the Mayor of Boise. Kitty Amyx, a sister in law, brought Martha to me as stylist at the Sherwood Plaza Beauty Salon, and Kitty said, make her look the best, she will be the wife of our new Mayor. The rest is history. Martha was kind, sweet and caring and made a strong partner for Jay in his leadership role. Jay Amyx, as Mayor, worked quietly and tirelessly to build a great city in his time in office. His legacy will live on. He loved to kid, joke and never met a stranger that he kept as friends for his lifetime. He had such a knack for old cars, restoring them and kept them like old friends.
Sorry for the lost. A life well lived. God bless the family
I miss you grandpa...I miss our snowball fights.
Jay's smile always made me happy.. I will always remember him for his joyful demeanor . Thank you Jay.
Martha, I worked with you many years ago at the Hillcrest Hickory Farms..I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. Carla
Martha, I am so sorry to hear about Jay. Remember all the wonderful times we had together. We love you and all of your children. Cleota (Newell) Patterson.
As a lifelong Boise resident, I remember well the time when Mayor Amyx was at the helm. He did our community well.
I didn't know him well, but I very much appreciated the accomplishments that are listed in his lovely obituary. He was a man of accomplishment - and his heart was obviously in a very good place. I reckon he's earned a reward "up yonder."
Condolences to his family and loved ones... and thank you for sharing him with the community at large.
Rest in peace Mayor. I can still picture you walking all over the the creamery in Meridian among all them cars. Fond memories from those days. You made a difference in the Boise Valley.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the Amyx family. Jay was a one of a kind man. Always had a smile, laughing and always chasing the kids to play and get their noses. He was generous and kind to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed by so many. I am lucky to have had the privilege of knowing him. God bless ?
Jay was there to help me through some of the darkest points in my life. He was always willing to lend an ear and offered to help any way he could. While I haven't seen him in 13 years, I still consider him a dear friend! He helped get me out of some horrible situations just because of our visits and his support. You will be greatly missed Jay!
I will miss you deeply. Thank You for letting me call you Dad. You were my "Great White Father" as Mom, Martha would say. You always had a smile on your face and a great sense of humor, this I will deeply miss. I Love you dad.
I will miss you deeply, you always had a smile on your face and always had a great sense of humor. You knew my family before I was even born. As the years went by I was put into yours and Martha's path. You both became my Spiritual Parents, as we walked down the path of Gods way of life, as you both guided me in life as a Christian should be. I Love You and Martha For all that you've done for me, and I you. But most of all I want to Thank You for letting me call you Dad and Martha Mom, You both were the only "real" Parents that God put in my path and I dearly thank him for this. I will miss you deeply and I Love you, always and forever your my Daddy
Jay, you knew my family before I was even born. You loved me as if I was one of your own kids.You and Martha became my Spiritual parents, as you showed me the path to the kingdom of God. You even allowed me to call you both Mom and Dad. The love you shared was such true real spiritual love from God, a love I will always hold within my heart the love from a Dad to a Daughter, that we had. I will always love you Daddy.
It was nice to know Jay. I bought a car from him in 1990 that he had refurbished at his creamery in Meridian, a 1964 Rambler Ambassador. It was a beauty and I loved that car. I knew him as the grandfather of my step children, Shasta and Ira Amyx. He treated me decent and was always friendly when we saw each other.
