After a long and courageous fight against cancer, Gary Eells, 78, passed away Sunday, June 23, 2019 in Nampa, Idaho. He was born April 5, 1941 to James and Zola Eells in Caldwell, Idaho
He was married to Viola Moore on October 12, 1959 and they were happily married for the next 59 years. As a young man, Gary enjoyed working on cars and other mechanical equipment. He went on to work for many years at Greenway Tractor and Campbell Tractor in a variety of positions. He loved restoring old cars, working on engines, camping, Sunday drives, and spending time with his family, friends, and his Campbell Tractor family.
Gary had a great sense of humor. His grandchildren have fond memories and first hand experience with his humor; such as hanging his grandson from his overalls in a tree while camping. His family also remembers his ability to fix and make just about anything. You could always count on Grandpa to help you out when something was broken.
Gary is survived by his wife, Viola, daughters Julie Mankin (Robb), Debra Browning, and Pamela Bartone (Mike), five grandchildren; Kristin Gendill (Kevin), Josh Mankin (Tiffany), Heather Morris (Beau), Taylor Medeiros (Emily), Dustin Eells (Heather); and eight great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life & Potluck will be held Sunday, June 30, 2019 at 3:30p at the Marsing American Legion Hall (126 N Bruneau Hwy, Marsing, ID)
