James Ivan Owen, 93, of Idaho Falls, passed away on October 31, 2012, at Life Care Center of Idaho Falls.

He was born May 29, 1919, in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Horace Edward Owen and Inez Jane Van Eps. James lived his entire life in Idaho Falls except for 3 years of service during World War II. He lived his early years during the great depression and helped keep the family going through many jobs and money making activities like trapping and selling newspapers. His parents and siblings moved to California leaving the elder sons, James, Edward, and Darell in Idaho Falls.

On December 21, 1948, he married Vera Joyce Morgan in Idaho Falls, Idaho. James began his baking career at the Swedish Bakery where the Key Bank on Capital and Broadway is currently located. He served as a mess sergeant in the Army. He worked as a baker and bakery manager for Albertsons for over 30 years and retired in 1981.

James was an outdoorsman, a hunter, wood cutter, and hard-core fisherman, who probably pulled more fish out of eastern Idaho streams than nearly anyone else.

Survivors are:
Wife: Joyce Owen, Idaho Falls, ID
3 sons: Steven James Owen, Pflugerville, TX
Edward Eugene Owen, Nashua, NH
Wesley Lynn Owen, Idaho Falls, ID
and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 3, 2012, at Rose Hill Cemetery.
