Kurt C. Karren Obituary
Kurt C. Karren, age 67, of Blackfoot, Idaho passed away at his home on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015.
Kurt Collin Karren was born April 3, 1948, in Blackfoot, Idaho to Thomas (Ted) and Inez Karren. He grew up in Blackfoot, attending Blackfoot High, and he later attended Idaho State University.  
He married Dinah Gilsdorf in August 1973.  
Kurt served two years in the US Army, stationed in Germany during the Vietnam era, and received the National Defense Service Medal for Sharpshooter.  
Kurt then made many friends while working for nearly 50 years at Retford Chevrolet, which later became Gardner Chevrolet and at Blackfoot Motors. He retired five years ago to pursue his other passions: gardening and fishing.
Kurt is survived by his wife, Dinah; two daughters, Melissa Rollene of Blackfoot and Candice (Jerry) Rosin of North Dakota; and four grandchildren, Gabriel Rollene and Ava Rollene of Blackfoot, and Jonah Rosin and Jachob (Nicole) Rosin of North Dakota.  
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ted and Inez; his sister, Betty Gingras; and his brother, Byron Karren.
A celebration of his life will be held in late spring 2016 and will be announced by Hawker Funeral Home. 
Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.hawkerfuneralhome.com.
