George H. Beavers
May 7, 1933 - January 3, 2015
George H. Beavers passed away peacefully at his home with his wonderful wife of 57 years and his oldest son by his side on January 3, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 81.

George was born on May 7, 1933 in Woodland, IA to Fay and Della Beavers (Johnson). He was the youngest of five children. He grew up and graduated from Wilder High School in 1952. Around this time he met his future wife, Mary, through his brother, Ward and Mary's sister, Evelyn who were dating. George moved to Wichita, Kansas and worked for Boeing Aircraft but wrote letters to Mary during his time away. A few years later on March 3, 1957 they were married in Wilder, Idaho at the home of Pastor Shaw.
They returned to Wichita and welcomed their first son, Ricky Lee in 1958. They returned to Idaho two years later and Mary's oldest brother, Gerald helped in getting George a job at Home Dairies. In 1962, they had their second son, Monty Dean. George worked for 36 years with Home Dairies/Darigold and retired from there at age 62. After one year of retirement George went back to work for Caldwell Transportation and later Vallivue School District. To him this wasn't work but a way to find new friends and keep busy. After being diagnosed with Myeloma in 2008, he went back into retirement.
George was a great provider and made sure his wife would be taken care of if anything happened to him. He was a hard worker who loved to hunt and fish. He taught his sons the 'fine art' of pheasant and deer hunting. They learned from the best and say he was the best hunter they have ever seen. There are many great fishing and hunting stories that can be told about George. George never met a stranger. Through his jobs and church he had a multitude of friends in Idaho and beyond. He made people feel welcome and appreciated. He was always doing for others with a smiling face and a caring heart. George was known for his positive attitude, hospitality, and his distinct whistle. Even after being diagnosed with cancer he continued to be active riding his ATV, catfishing, and meeting his buddies every morning for coffee. Even in his last days he was concerned about the feelings of those around him.
George is survived by his wife, Mary of Caldwell; Son, Rick Beavers of Adrian, OR; Son, Monty (Anita) Beavers of Nampa; Grandchildren Kelly Beavers, Kimberly Gregory (Ben), Alan Beavers, and Jackie Beavers; Great Grandson Matthew Gregory and a second great grandchild on the way.
