George Dines
May 3, 1942 - December 10, 2014
George Dines, 72 yrs. of Marsing ID, passed peacefully December 10, 2014 at home with his family surrounding him.
George was born and raised in Marsing ID to Russell and Faye Hayes Dines May 3, 1942. He graduated from Marsing High in 1960, and on November 9, 1963 he married Jackie Jones. Together they had 3 children, Mike, Michelle "Babe" and Mark.
He drove truck for Feller Trucking and Jim Kent Trucking. In 1965 George began working on Ranches all over the Owyhees and Eastern Oregon. Then in 1977 he quit ranching, moved back to Marsing and began training and shoeing horses full time.
He competed professionally in horse shows all over the N.W., both in the Snaffle Bit Futurities and Cow Cutting Competitions. George was very instrumental in getting the Amateur Division into the IRCHA. He wanted to make sure there was a place for young trainers. He truly loved helping people and held Horsemanship Clinics from Northern Montana to Nevada, so that anyone wanting to become a better horseman could do so.
Dad was always involved in our lives and his grandkids' lives, no matter what our interest might be. He made us feel supported, protected and very loved. He will truly be missed.
He was preceded in death by his mother, father and infant brother.
He is survived by his wife, Jackie and their 3 children, Mike and his wife-Lili Dines, Michelle "Babe" Archer and Mark Dines; 6 grandchildren, Troy (Cara) and Carey Dines, JaNae, Cole and Courtney Archer and Jayce Dines; one great-grandchild, Rosie Dines; three brothers and two sisters, Lucille (Don) Aldrich, Frank (Ellen) Dines, Donna (Bob) Webb, Ralph (Margie) Dines, Rich (Sherry) Dines and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of his life will be held Tues. Dec. 16, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the American Legion Hall 126 S Bruneau Hwy. Marsing, ID. Arrangements are under the direction of the Nampa Funeral Home, Yraguen Chapel. An online guest book is available at
Anyone having a story to tell about George and how he touched your life is asked to write it down and bring with you. The family would like to make a remembrance book of this wonderful man.
A special thank you to Journeys Hospice for helping our family to care for George.
