On Monday, July 5, 2021, Almon Fredrick Heavrin passed away at the age of 91. Almon (known as Al), one of nine siblings, was born September 19, 1929 in Banks, Idaho to Harrison (Harry) Heavrin and Alice Heavrin.
Al graduated from Emmett High School in 1949 and spent most of his life living in or near Sweet.
He married Dorothy Salazar on November 24, 1957. They raised three sons, Craig, Bruce and Clark, and one daughter, Cynthia.
Al was known as a rancher, dry land farmer, fence builder, cowboy, mechanic, and all-around good guy who could fix almost anything and would lend a helping hand to any neighbor or friend in need. Most of his career his job title was “Foreman” on the ranch known as Soldier Creek, located at the end of Liberty Road. He ran the ranch like his own, putting in endless hours to ensure successful crops and livestock production. His fence building was legendary, known for a sturdy build and perfectly straight lines.
He retired to a residence in Sweet, and after 40 years of marriage, his wife Dorothy preceded him in an unexpected death. His passion became caring for the Brownlee Cemetery where she rests. He was also known for his well-kept yard at his home in Sweet and was often seen sitting in a chair under a shade tree with his faithful dog, extending a friendly wave and smile to passing neighbors.
