James Brian Radabaugh, 40, of Firth, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Monday August 29, 2022.
James was born March 9, 1982 in Twin Falls. He grew up and attended school in Paul and graduated from Minico High School in Rupert in 2001.
James was a quiet guy with huge dimples when you could get him to smile. James loved pugs, semi-trucks, and anything he could take apart and put back together. One of his greatest accomplishments was getting two 4 wheelers running that were supposedly unfixable. He could always be found doing things for and with his best friend and big brother, Jason. They spent many hours together working on trucks and side by sides.
James was the “pug father” for over 10 years to his beloved pet Puggles Radabaugh. He is survived by his mother and second father Dolores and Jay Madsen; brothers, Jason Radabaugh and Wade Cotten; sisters, Diana (George) Voss, Andrea (Fred Graetzer) Radabaugh, Danyale (Scott) Gilligan, Dairique (Juventino Navarrete) Whitaker; stepbrothers, Derek (Lily), Deke (Kim), Dyston (Brittany), and Donovan (Ashley) Madsen. He was an uncle and great uncle to many.
James was preceded in death by his father, Norman Radabaugh and siblings, Sheila, Shauna, and Calvin Radabaugh.
James loved going on long trips with his dad in the truck, not saying a word sometimes. Now, he and his father will take their last long trip together to heaven. They will share a final resting place.
The family will receive friends Friday, September 2, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. till 2:00 p.m. at Nalder Funeral Home (110 W Oak Street) in Shelley. Burial will follow at the Goshen Cemetery.
