John Edward Dwight III, 24, of Idaho Falls, passed away unexpectedly Friday, Feb. 28, 2014.
He was born Dec. 3, 1989, in Idaho Falls to John E. Dwight Jr. and Carla Chelan Dwight. He attended Sunnyside Elementary School, Taylorview Jr. High, Idaho Falls High School and Elk Creek Academy in Heron, Mont. He attended the University of Idaho for three semesters.
John was an accomplished driller, working for Greenup Geo Drilling of New Mexico on the installation of clean energy systems for LoopTech in New Mexico and Texas, and in support of uranium exploration for Uranium One in Wyoming. More recently, he returned to Idaho Falls and worked for Hard Core Construction of Rigby as an apprentice housing framer.
He loved sports and outdoor activities. He played youth soccer, basketball and ice hockey, but his real passions were rock climbing, snowboarding, long boarding and wilderness camping. He loved adventure.
A beloved son, brother, uncle and grandson, he is survived by his parents, John and Carla; his sisters, Elizabeth (Chad Connatty) and Natalie; his niece, Kenzlie Ann; and his grandparents, Jack and Mary Ann Dwight of Estero, Fla., and Tess Greenup and Jerry Adcox of Pocatello.
John cherished his friends, family and his dog, Bo. He was loving, generous, forgiving, never held a grudge and never turned his back on a friend. He could always raise a smile and will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 6, at Buck-Miller-Hann Funeral Home, 825 E. 17th St. in Idaho Falls.
