Jim Craw Passed away peacefully at the Beaver Valley Hospital on January 24th, 2022 with his family by his side.\nHe was born at home in Minersville, Utah on March 25th, 1936—the 8th and youngest child of Charles Nelson Craw and Lydia Fern Talbot. Jim grew up on the farm and learned to work at an early age. He remembers raking hay with a team of horses and also helping his mother with the garden. As a teenager he often spent a couple of months in the spring of the year out southwest of Minersville (near the Mound Mtn) herding cattle with his dad and staying in a camp wagon at what they called the “cow camp”.\nHe graduated from Beaver High School in 1954 and went to work for the UP Railroad as a section hand at Lund, UT. He met Eileen while working for the railroad and on Oct 24, 1955 they were married in Pioche, NV. They went on their honeymoon for a week (which was actually the deer hunt). Shortly thereafter they moved to Reno, NV where Jim did carpentry and also learned to become a brick mason. They spent a couple of summers contracting Hay for local farmers as well. Jim worked at the Nevada Nuclear Test Site from 1962 until 1969. He saved his money and then came home to Minersville to take up farming. He bought some dairy cows and leased a farm on the Milford Flat. Now he was home to stay.\nIn 1974 he bought some ground in the Utopia farms west of Minersville and for many years he farmed and ran range cattle and also worked a dairy. Jim was a pureblood workaholic, just like many of the people who settled and lived in this area. Nearly every weekend from 1978 until 2007, he would take a semi-load of hay to Las Vegas and sell to the Horse people (training stables). He even sold a little hay to Wayne Newton.\nEvery Person leaves a legacy and Jim has left a legacy of hard work and an honest effort each day. He is survived by his wife (Eileen) of Minersville, son Dale (Chellie) Craw of Minersville, son Steven (Naomi) Craw of Driggs, ID; daughter Arleen Craw of Minersville. Jim has 14 grandchildren and 35 Great grandchildren. He was the last surviving member of his immediate family (Charles and Lydia Craw). He was preceded in death by his son Keith “Fed” Craw.\nWe love you grandpa Jim! And we will miss you.\nTo plant Memorial Trees in memory of Jimmy Weldon Craw, please click here to visit our Sympathy Store.
