Brian Michael Boyes
November 8, 1972 - September 16, 2023
Brian Michael Boyes 50, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, passed away peacefully on September 16th at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Brian passed away due to complications from his congestive heart failure, surrounded by his family.
Brian was born to Terry and Marie Boyes on November 8, 1972 in Albany, Oregon. He was raised in Oregon and graduated from Sweet Home High School in 1992. Shortly after high school he moved to Colorado and helped construct the Colorado Rockies Stadium. Brian was a jack of all trades and it took him across several states and he made his final residence in Idaho Falls, ID. It didn't matter what state he was in, he always ended up in the mountains, with his dogs, either hunting or rock hunting.
Brian was a true outdoorsman at heart, finding his bliss in the simple joys of hunting and fishing. But what really made his eyes light up was his love for his kids – he was the proudest girl dad you'd ever meet. Whether he was cracking jokes or sharing stories, Brian had an incredible knack for making any gathering come alive; he was the soul of the party. It didn't matter who you were; once you knew Brian, you couldn't help but love him. His memory will always be wrapped in the warmth of those who were lucky enough to call him a friend or dad.
Brian is survived by his daughters: Brittney Boyes, Courteney Boyes and Racheal Hilburn, mother Marie (Bob) Kennelly, father Terry Boyes, brother Shawn (Tamra) Boyes, Kekoa (Dusti) Kennelly, Ethan (Christine) Kennelly, Ben Kennelly; sister Laurellee (Brian) Montgomery and multiple nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his grandparents.
A celebration of life will be held on October 28th in Sweet Home, Oregon, time and place TBA. Family will reach out to loved ones with further details.
