Harold Tolmie
July 7, 1935 - October 30, 2015
Harold "Hal" Tolmie was born in Idaho Falls on July 7, 1935 to Norm and Elaine Tolmie. He passed peacefully October 30, 2015 with his family at his side.
Hal graduated from Homedale High School in 1953, and served in active duty for the army from May 1955 to May 1957. He married Judy (Thomas) September 6, 1957. They lived in Boise until 1968 then spent a year in Payette before returning to Homedale, where they opened and ran Tolmie's Furniture and Appliance store until retirement.
Hal sincerely cared about his community; he served on the Homedale School Board and was also an Owyhee County Commissioner for many years. While a commissioner, Hal was proud to be part of the Owyhee County Initiative, a collaborative that brought people together to find solutions for land management issues.
Hal was preceded in death by his wife, Judy, in April 2015, whom he missed tremendously. They were a wonderful couple and always said their favorite times were being with their boys and their families. Hal and Judy were the life of the party, whether attending grandchildren's sporting events, camping, fishing or spending an evening of laughter while playing games at their dining room table.
Also preceding him in death were his parents, Norm and Elaine, and sisters, Joan and Colleen. He is survived by his two sons, Brett (Lauri) Tolmie and Dirk (Robyn) Tolmie, and five grandchildren: Lindsey, Erin, Zach, Jake and Josh. He leaves his brother, Mack, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
