(Mar. 5, 2010)

Jonathan David Fales, 35, died Friday, March 5, 2010, in Desert Hot Springs, Calif.

Jonathan was born in Van Nuys, Calif., on July 11, 1974. After leaving California at the age of seven, Jonathan also lived in Idaho, New Hampshire, and Arizona while growing up. As an adult, he spent time in Utah, Florida, Texas, Washington and Wyoming before moving back to California. He loved moving around, meeting new people and learning about the world.

Jonathan was a man who desired peace and had great compassion. He admired and appreciated people of all races and their cultures. He was extremely loyal and always willing to help anyone who was in need. Jonathan was never one to hold grudges and was quick to forgive. He was self-educated, enjoyed acquiring knowledge and looked forward to helping children learn. Jonathan was proud of his family and thought it was great to be part of such a large and diverse group.

Jonathan is survived by his parents, David and Kristine Fales of Cody; his three brothers and seven sisters: Ali Behrens, Andrew Fales (Charity), Ben Fales (Shelley), Annie Arrington (Scott), Kat Serra (Justin), Liz Dewey (Jon), Rebekah Peterson (Doug), Angela Fales, Matt Fales and Michelle Fales; seven nieces; and seven nephews. He is also survived by his grandmother, Vivian Fales; many  aunts and uncles; and 47 first cousins.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Heard and Alice Fales and Ruth Asay Fales; maternal grandparents, Robert and Birdell Litster; an uncle, Gibb Frost; and former brother-in-law Justin Behrens.

Funeral services were held on Saturday, March 13, at the Mountain View Ward building of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boise, Idaho. Interment took place at Cloverdale Cemetery.

A memorial service will be held from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 21, at the home of David and Kristine Fales at 179 Road 3CXS in Cody.  All those who would like to visit with the family and learn more about Jonathan’s life are invited to come.
