Joseph S. Hild formerly of Fruitland and Cascade, Idaho passed away July 25, 2019 after a battle with cancer. At his request a brief graveside service will be held at 11:00 AM on July 30, 2019 at the Parma cemetery.
Joe was born in Parma, Idaho, the son of Raymond “Bill” and Florene Hild. He grew up in Parma and Apple Valley Idaho and went to school in the Parma school system. Dad went to work at an early age to support his family due to the death of his father. He worked 43 years running a very successful drywall business. He finished many of the houses and businesses from Ontario to Emmett and up to Cascade and McCall. Dad was an artist and it showed in his work.
Dad had two sons Brad and Dennis, who he loved very much.
Dad moved from his home in Fruitland to his cabin in Cascade where he lived nearly 20 years until the winters got too long and the snow too deep. He and the love of his life Diana Ingalls bought a house in Payette and lived there until they were separated due to illness. Regardless of where he lived, Dad was a mountain man. Before buying the cabin in Cascade he spent many weekends camping at Goose Lake. During his time in Cascade he hunted, fished, mushroomed, picked huckleberries and enjoyed the mountains. In the winter you would find Dad flying around the mountain on his snow machine (usually with a beer between his legs!) and in the summer he’d be puttering around on his 4 wheeler with a beer in the drink holder. Dad always fancied himself a tough, grumpy German but he was a softie and had a heart of gold. He was loved by many.
He is survived by his partner and best friend Diana Ingalls, his son Brad Hild and his wife Dana of Star, his son Dennis Seward of Caldwell, his sister Shirley Isaacs and her husband Paul of Boise, six grandchildren, two great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father Raymond, mother Florene and his brothers Bud, Bob, Karl and Dennis “Jackie”.
The members of Dad’s family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Good Samaritan in Boise, Idaho for taking such great care of Dad during his final days.
Memorials may be made to the Donald Trump “Keep America Great” 2020 presidential campaign. OK, that was his idea. Seriously, memorials can be made to the Good Samaritan home so they can continue to take such good care of their guests.
We love you Dad!
