RUPERT– Ronald R. Hyde, age 78, of Rupert and formerly of Richfield, died Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, at Minidoka Memorial Hospital, following a battle with lung cancer.

He was born in Custer, South Dakota, to Ralph and Helen Campbell Hyde. Ron later moved with his family to Idaho. He married Kathleen Neiwert and they raised their family in the Mini-Cassia and Picabo areas. Ron spent 10 years as a mechanic at Massey Ferguson and worked as a ranch hand for Six S Ranch as well as Picabo Livestock.

Ron loved the outdoors and raised his sons to be excellent sportsmen. He might not have had much but Ron would be willing to give the shirt off his back to help his family. He always had a keen sense of humor that got us through the hard times.
Ron is survived by his loving wife Kathleen; his children, Shane (Eileen) Hyde of Rupert, James (Brenda) Hyde of Bellevue, Kaylynne Hyde of Richfield, Laurie Hyde of Buhl; 18 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Bonnie Hewell of Atlanta, Georgia, and Pearl Costner of San Jose, California.

He was preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Diana Price; and son, Kelly Hyde.

A memorial service for family and friends will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Grace Community Church, 100 N. Meridian Rd., in Rupert, with Pastor Travis Turner officiating.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Rasmussen Funeral Home of Burley.
