James Richard "Dick" Nedrow passed away Friday June 21, 2019 surrounded by family. He was born January 15, 1943 in St. Anthony, Idaho to James Roland and Dorothy Goebel Nedrow. He grew up in Ashton, Idaho and had a very close relationship with his grandfather Simon Albert Nedrow. Dick graduated from North Fremont High School in 1961. He was a member of the National Guard and was activated from 1961 to 1962 during the Berlin Crisis. After that, he attended the University of Idaho where he received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 1967. He married Mary Baker on May 27, 1967 and returned to Ashton to begin a lifelong career in farming. He started out with barley, wheat, and alfalfa and later started raising potatoes in 1968 along with his Uncle (Bumps) Edward Goebel. He fully retired, as much as a farmer can ever retire, in 2009 and his farming legacy continues through his oldest daughter and son in law. Dick enjoyed many outdoor activities from riding his horses, hunting, snowmobiling, skiing (snow and water), and many others. Dick and Mary enjoyed their later years traveling to various places, meeting new friends and spending time in Arizona. Dick is survived by his wife Mary, daughters Shawna (Sean)Maupin and Jodi (Bill) Bishoff, son Bret Nedrow, a granddaughter Chloe Bishoff and grandsons Hayden Maupin and Dylan Bishoff, a sister Judy Sullivan and a brother John Nedrow.
