Jack Mustoe

2/5/1931 — 1/19/2019

On Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, Jack Mustoe passed away at age 87.

Jack was born Feb. 5, 1931, in Wallace, Idaho, to Given and Goldie Mustoe. The family moved back to Southwick, Idaho, when Jack was age 1. He attended Southwick Grade School and graduated in 1949 from Kendrick High School, where he played on the championship football team. After graduation, he attended Lewis Clark Normal School until it closed in 1951. That fall he started farming at Southwick.

On Oct. 5, 1951, he married his girlfriend, Betty Lee Colwell. They had one son, Mark. Together they farmed and raised cattle until retiring in 1994. They moved to Lewiston in 2002 and attended the Orchards Methodist Church. Jack always enjoyed fishing, camping, visiting friends and spending time with family. His main passion was farming. His favorite time of year was spring, when he could see the crops begin to grow — Betty recalls that he lost several pocket knives while going up newly seeded rows digging to see if the seed had sprouted.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Betty Mustoe; son Mark Mustoe and partner Barry James; granddaughter Marie, husband Tom Linehan; great-granddaughter McKenzie; and granddaughter Mollie, husband Ross Freeden.

Thank you, family and friends, for your kind thoughts and support.

A funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Malcom’s Brower-Wann Funeral Home, and burial will follow at the Southwick Pine Hill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kendrick Memorial Pool, Southwick Community Center, or a charity of your choosing.
