Farrel Jay Stacey, 87, of Idaho Falls, passed away Sunday, July 13, 2014, at Good Samaritan Society Idaho Falls Village.

Farrel was born June 1, 1927, in Archer, Idaho, to Edwin "Teddy" Stacey and Mary Browning Stacey. He attended elementary school in Archer and Lorenzo, Idaho, and high school in Rexburg and Puyallup, Wash.

Farrel served in the U.S. Army from August 1945 until October 1946.

Farrel worked for Johnson Brothers Planing Mill for 42 years and created many beautiful woodwork pieces. He took great pride in working on and helping direct the woodwork on five LDS temples. When not working, he enjoyed going to the temple, doing family history and indexing, hunting, fishing, oil painting and spending time with his family.

Farrel was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held various church callings. He was a temple worker for two years in addition to serving a six-year temple mission with his beloved wife.

He is survived by his wife, Berniece Stacey of Idaho Falls; sons, Ron (Janet) Stacey, Douglas (Marcela) Stacey and Curtis (Alana) Stacey, all of Idaho Falls; brother, Frank (Thelma) Stacey; 13 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
