Jay Douglas Greene passed away peacefully in his home in Rupert,
Idaho on July 4, 2019, at the age of 56. Jay was an avid
outdoorsman who had a love for guns, hunting, fishing or just
spending time in his garden, reading a book. Jay spent his youth
swimming & many of us remember him as ‘one of the best’. He
was often seen on the lifeguard stand with his white zinced nose
& towels covering his body from head to toe so he wouldn’t get
sunburnt. Although, more often than not, that didn’t work and it
wasn’t unusual to see him running around town sporting a
sunburn & blisters. He entered a freckle contest once but lost due
to the fact that he was one big freckle!
He is survived by Rowdy Greene (son), Makayla Greene
(daughter), Doug & Gloria Greene (parents), Becky Naber (sister)
& several aunts, uncles, cousins & friends. He is preceded in death
by Monte Lee Greene (brother), Martin & Laraine ‘Rusty’ Maddox
(maternal grandparents), Corwin & Lucille Greene (paternal
The picture chosen for the obituary was a photo published in a
book called, In the American West by Richard Avedon. We feel
this picture captures the Jay that everybody remembers and
In lieu of services, we would like everybody to raise a glass and
cheers to Jay, as was his wish.  Cremation services are under the direction of Morrison Funeral Home, 188 South Hwy 24 in Rupert
