Pleasant to Garwood Strate and Lucile Irving. He was the oldest of 3 boys. From an early age, Kendall had a great love of horses and the outdoors. He loved riding horses, hunting, camping, fishing and anything to do with the mountains, desert or livestock. Kendall had many physical challenges in his life. In 2006 he suffered a stroke that limited his physical ability, but he never complained and he always had a positive attitude. He was an auto mechanic and a sheepherder. People who knew him loved him for his sense of humor and his kind heart. Kendall leaves behind his wife of 31 years, Kris. His children Chuck, Amanda, Robert and Jason. Brothers Clint and Merrill. 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Special step-dad Tom Rees and special father-in-law Ross Terry. Special friends Jeff Allred and Leon Sidwell.

    Loved to go ridding with Kendall when I was little. I remember when he broke his arm I wouldn’t touch his cast because I thought it would hurt him and I got made at him and cried when he would tap his cast. The heavens gained a great guy and imagine the reunion in heaven was real joyous. Kris’s I send my deepest sympathies to you st this time.

    I am Kendall’s cousin from California.when I was back there for his mom’s funeral, walked up to him as he was being helped out of his truck and I introduced myself.
    I loved his response, he said; “I know who you are, I’m in a wheelchair but I’m not blind!” My condolences to all the family.

    Oh, my dear friend Kris,
    I was so sorry to read that Kendall had passed. I want you to know that you are in my heart and I wish you all of the comforts that can be found among your many many friends and know that you were his Angel on Earth. Love you, my old friend.

  4. I was sad to hear of Kendall’s passing. He grew up as a neighbor in Spring City and I actually use to tend he and his younger brothers. I have many good memories of his family and I certainly extend my condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren and siblings. I know he didn’t have an easy life but I hope you can feel st peace now.
