Joe Agueda

January 20, 1963 — October 7, 2021


Joe E. Agueda, 58, of Jerome passed away October 7, 2021, at St. Luke's Hospital, Twin Falls. He was born January 20, 1963 in Topo, Jorge, Azores Portugal, the son of Adelino Agueda & Angela Azevedo Agueda.

Joe married Sandra Schwegerl May 23, 1987 at Holy Rosary Church, Hilmar, California. They lived in Turlock, California before moving to Wendell, Idaho in 1989, and then making their home in Jerome, Idaho in 1992 where they owned and operated Joe and Sandra Agueda Dairy, LLC.

Joe will be remembered as a wonderful man who was always willing to help anyone in need. He loved his family, friends, neighbors, and community. He was a generous dairyman who supported 4-H, FFA, and Magic Valley Dairy Heifer Program, along with several Jerome School sports and rodeo programs. We will deeply miss his warm smile, big hugs, and loud laughs.

He was preceded in death by his father, Adelino Agueda of Hilmar, CA; and his father-in-law, Robert E. Schwegerl of Fremont, CA.
