Jimmie Chynoweth, age 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Feb. 11, 2018, at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center in Palmer, Alaska.
He told his family he was going fishing at high noon that day, and that's just what he did.
Jimmie was born on May 19, 1939, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was the second child of Ivan and June (Crawford) Chynoweth.
In 1957, Jimmie married his loving wife, Joan Crow in Salt Lake City, Utah. They soon started their family and had four children: Doug, Terry, Kelli and Kirk.
Jim served his country in the United States Army briefly, as he called it, during the clean-up of the Korean War.
Jimmie moved his family to Alaska in 1975. Jim was a very talented carpenter and worked on many structures throughout Alaska and Utah. During his career he held many positions, including Superintendent.
Jim was an avid fisherman. One of his favorite fishing spots was Strawberry Reservoir in Utah. During retirement he enjoyed his winters in Yuma, Ariz., but would always stop at Strawberry on his way to Arizona and back to Alaska. His children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, remember him fondly for teaching them to fish.
He is preceded in death by his son, Jimmie Douglas Chynoweth; his parents; and wife of 54 years, Joan Chynoweth.
Jim is survived by his children: daughter and son-in-law, Terry and Mike Dennison of Wasilla, Alaska; daughter and son-in-law, Kelli and Victor Dossey of Seattle, Wash.; and son and daughter-in-law, Kirk and Daphne Chynoweth of Long Beach, Wash. He is also survived by his siblings, Ivanna Stowe and Keith Chynoweth; as well as nine grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and partner, Kathleen Huggins.
Arrangements are cared for by Janssen's Mat-Su Funeral Home.
