Stanely A. Tebbs
Stanley A. Tebbs, 93, of Samaria, ID, passed peacefully in his sleep the morning of April 5, 2023. Stan was always a gentle and loving man, who had the utmost integrity, and led by example. Stan was the oldest child of Stanley D Tebbs and Beth Riddle Tebbs. He grew up in Panguitch UT. After high school, he attended BYU in Provo UT, where he met Rayona Marie Price. They married on December 21, 1949, in the LDS Manti temple. Together they raised seven children.
Stan served in the US Navy, aboard the USS Suisun in the Koror Islands during the Korean Conflict. After his military service, his employment with Standard Oil Company moved the family from Winnemucca, NV to Clearfield, UT, where he owned and operated ‘Stan’s Chevron Service.’ He joined the Davis County Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy in 1963, and after 25 years of dedicated service, retired as a lieutenant in 1988. After retirement, Stan and Rayona became “snowbirds”, spending their time between their homes in Quartzsite, AZ, Mesquite, NV, and their beloved cabin in Lava Ranch, ID. They built their forever home in Samaria, ID in 2000, where they resided until their deaths.
Stan was preceded in death by his wife Rayona, his sister Janet Adams, his son David Tebbs, and two grand-daughters Kerissa Tebbs and Kassidy Tebbs. He is survived by his brother Douglas (Kathleen) Tebbs, his six children; Sharee (Richard) Castelli, Sheila (Kurt) Klev, Alan (Vicki) Tebbs, Jilyn (Steve) Hopkins, Cindy (Kim) Keller, Russell Tebbs, twenty-four grandchildren and thirty-two great-grandchildren.
