Memories of Lorin Mendenhall from his children

Katkıda bulunan: Lona Graham Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Life History of Lorin K. Mendenhall recollections of Dennis K. Mendenhall, (son) Lorin K. Mendenhall, was born March 20, 1921 in Dayton, Franklin, Idaho to Kenneth Lorin Mendenhall and Ruth Perkins Mendenhall. He was the third born of six children, he had three older sisters and two younger brothers. He passed away on October 25, 1994 in Bannock Memorial Hospital in Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho. He grew up on a farm in Dayton, Idaho where he learned to work and provide for himself. At the young age of 12 years his father passed away leaving the responsibility of helping to provide for the family on is older sisters and himself with his mother. It was said that there came a time when His mother offered to sell him the farm in Dayton for a Hundred dollars but at the time he couldn’t come up with the money to buy it. The family eventually had to sell the farm and move. When Lorin was old enough he joined the Army branch of the military. He served in the Army and is a veteran of the 2nd world war. After serving in the military he eventually met and fell in love with Florene Crockett. They eloped and were married on March 27, 1946 in Elko, Nevada. Florene was still in high school in her senior year of school. While she finished school dad was working odd jobs where ever he could find work. Dad was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and was mom. They were eventually sealed together with all of their children in the Idaho Falls Temple on August 20, 1966. He and mom worked on a ranch for a while and dad then found work with the railroad for a short time. He heard about a company in Pocatello that was hiring. He went there to look for work and was hired at a company by the name of Westvaco which later became FMC corporation. They moved to Pocatello about 1950 and dad went to work at Westvaco. He retired from that company 33 years later as a chief relief operator over the calcining kiln that processed the phosphate earth that was cooked to make phosphate that was use in detergents and many other products. Lorin was an avid sportsman. He loved to hunt and fish and any other outdoor activities he could find. I remember from the time I was old enough that we camped out as much as time would allow him to do. During hunting season we chased deer and pheasants and other game that he could us to feed and support his family and would allow him to do what he enjoyed so much. He enjoyed hunting with his sons a they became old enough to carry a gun and have a hunting license. He also enjoyed the sports his children were involved in and followed them where ever the teams played. He received recognition from the local high school for being their most loyal sports fan and supporter. At this point I would like to include remembrances of some of his children in this history. Dan: Dan remembers walking along a ridge up on Malad pass deer hunting with dad when he was 12 years old. Dennis was also there and down in the trees below he and dad when Dennis chased out a doe and a big buck. Dan just stood there and yelled and never remembered that he had dads gun. By the time Dad told him to shoot at it the deer it went over the hill. Dad just laughed and said I (Dan) had “Buck fever” real bad. Marcia: one of her fond memories of dad is a time that Marcia was in Salt Lake to have Thyroid surgery. She remembers coming out of surgery and dad had leaned over her to give her a kiss on the cheek and leaned his elbow right on her neck where she had just had the surgery. Marcia said he cried and cried about what he had done. She tried to reassure him that it didn’t hurt. Illness and surgery was one time when dad was usually always there to support his children. Marcia let us know that she loves and misses her dad. Kenneth: Ken was a very good baseball player and dad made every effort to be at the game no matter where Ken was playing baseball. Ken said that was one of his fondest memories of dad. He knew that when he looked in the bleachers that he new that dad would always be there being his number one supporter and rooting loudly for him. Dad followed Kens baseball career through his college years. After dad retired, he had 5 or 6 good years with reasonable good health. As his health declined it made it more and more difficult for him to follow the teams that his children and grandchildren were involved in around the state. He found that a girls softball league was organized in the Pocatello area. He went to watch the girls play as he called them. It wasn’t long though before his health was such that he became more and more home bound. His health continued to slip away until one day he stated having difficult breathing and his lungs filled with fluid. It was one of these episodes that finally took his life.
