Cary Theron Featherston, age 74, of Tuttle, Idaho, passed into the loving arms of God on April 11, 2023 at the North Canyon Medical Center in Gooding, Idaho after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Cary was born in Noblesville, Indiana to the parents of Mary Elaine Fry and Carey Theron Featherston. Cary is survived by his loving wife Debra and their 4 children, Dawn Marie, Seth Daniel and twins, Katie Rene and Kyle Wade Featherston, their 5 grandchildren, Makayla, Maisie, Khole, Liam and little Vera and his younger brother Mark Elden Featherston. Cary was preceded in death by their son Silas Cary Featherston, and his older sister Linda Gayle Featherston Freeman.
On April 4th 1984 Cary met his forever love Debra Lynn Christensen, which was ordained by God, and they were married just before Christmas on December 21st 1986. Cary had the strength of ten men and an ever-enduring sense of humor. Cary always strived to see the best in other people and to always take the high road with others through his journey of life.
Cary is an Air Force veteran of the Vietnam era and served as a com-plotter of communications and security in Thule, Greenland and at Travis Air Force base in California.
In 1992 Cary and Debra started an award-winning community radio station in the Okanogan Valley of Washington state/ Through Cary’s efforts and ingenuity they ended up with a broadcast reach across the country that was an envy of the big radio stations in the area. Cary and Debra broadcast lots of Christen themed music and gospel content which did not sit well with a few of the anti-Christian broadcast owners.
Cary and Debra would like to make a special request to those who are able… and that is to please donate “the gift of life” at your local blood bank. Thank you.
May God be blessed with his presence in Heaven, as we all were who knew and associated with him on earth.
