Joe Nauman

September 4, 1926 — September 18, 2019


We have lost another member of the greatest generation from Jerome, Idaho. Joe Richard Nauman passed away September 18, 2019 in Twin Falls, Idaho. He was born in Berrryville, Arkansas on September 4, 1926.

He married Shirley Hicks, a resident of Hollister, Idaho, and they were married for 23 years, until her death.

Joe joined the Navy in 1942, working as a CB in the South Pacific during the war. He was honorably discharged in 1946 with a rank of Seaman First Class.

After returning from the war, he farmed locally for a time. He worked for the Salmon Falls Canal Company for over 20 years as a ditchrider and heavy equipment operator.

He loved to hunt and fish, he was a great gardener, and he enjoyed his cats.

We want to thank the Twin Falls Care Center for their care and concern while he was there.

Joe will be privately laid to rest at West End Cemetery, Buhl, Idaho.
