Erick Standlee, 42, passed away February 17, 2021 at St. Luke’s Twin Falls with his parents by his side. Erick was born November 14, 1978 at St. Benedict’s in Jerome to Mark and Chris Standlee. A little sister, Jamie, was born into the family in 1981.
Erick attended school in Wendell. He had many jobs, but his favorite was driving truck. His last job was at Hub City Building where he also delivered loads for them until, for health reasons, he could no longer maintain his CDL. He continued to work for them part-time where he was treated well.
Erick loved the outdoors, going on countless camping trips with his family. He was an excellent dirt bike rider and snowmobiler. Erick was a tender-hearted person. You would never hear Erick speak an unkind word about anyone. He never wanted to hear others speaking hurtful words about others either. Erick loved the Lord and spent all his reading time studying his Bible. The world lost a kind soul when it lost Erick.
He is survived by his parents, Mark and Chris Standlee of Wendell; sister, Jamie of Filer; nephew, Chase Miller of Filer; Gwen Standlee of Filer; grandmothers, Viola Standlee of Jerome and Judy Orsland of Twin Falls; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Erick was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Don Standlee and Larry Orsland; and cousin, Coco Michelle Orsland.
Erick will be missed very much! His family takes great comfort knowing that Erick is wrapped in the arms of the Lord.
A Celebration of Erick’s Life will be held at 11:00 am, Saturday, March 6, 2021 at the New Life Church, 800 W Main St, Wendell, Idaho.
