Kenneth Dee Edmunds passed away on June 18, 2019 at the age of 63.

Ken is survived by his wife, Jane Edmunds (Twin Falls, ID); his children, Ryan Edmunds (Kari Dawn), Sean Edmunds (JoEllen), Eric Edmunds, and Deidre Miller (Adam); nine grandchildren; and two brothers, Richard and Bruce Edmunds. He is preceded in death by his parents, Ervin and LaPriel Edmunds, and two brothers, Tom and Gary Edmunds.

Ken was born on September 26, 1955 in Toppenish, WA to Ervin and LaPriel Edmunds. He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and graduated from Brigham Young University with both a Bachelor of Science and master’s degrees in accounting. He married Jane on June 8, 1979 in the Salt Lake City Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. They moved to Twin Falls, ID in 1986 to raise their family where Ken had a successful career in land development and as a general contractor in construction of commercial and residential projects in Idaho, North Dakota and elsewhere, including Edmunds Homes and Frontier Moving and Storage. He worked independently as a consultant to a variety of businesses to develop financial systems and controls, financing, business expansion and management. He later became the Director of the Idaho Department of Labor where he oversaw Idaho’s workforce development and other related services.

Ken was dedicated to service and education, and committed a large amount of his life to his community where he served as a Board Member and President of the Idaho State Board of Education, Board Member and Far West Regional Director of the US Youth Soccer Association, President of the Idaho Youth Soccer Association, Chairman of the Twin Falls Centennial Commission, President of the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, and other positions and roles at the Southern Idaho Economic Development Organization, Twin Falls Community Foundation, Southern Idaho Learning Center, the Magic Valley Builders Association, and the Idaho STEM Action Center.

Ken had a tremendous work ethic, was passionate about improving the world around him, and strived to be generous in offering his time and knowledge to friends, family, associates, and anybody else. He always encouraged others to pursue and achieve their goals, and was willing to work alongside them to do so.

I had the opportunity to serve with Ken in our time at US Youth Soccer. From our first meeting in Utah at a regional youth soccer meeting to our last discussion, we became fast friends. I always appreciated Ken's ability of bringing common sense to youth sports. His laughter, his ability to negotiate and find solutions to difficult issues was fun to watch as he found success. I will miss his infectious outlook on life and what it brings to all of us.

My thoughts go out to this wife and family, whom he spoke about with love and kindness that are rarely seen today. I am proud to call him a friend, a colleague and most of all a kindred spirit.

Jane and family,
Ken and I grew up together in Pasco. He was a great example to me and all the young men in our group. He was fearless and would lead out and serve faithfully in so many ways. His life has reflected true greatness in every aspect. He seemed to always be happy and he followed the admonition of the Lord to be of good cheer.

Our paths did not cross very often but when they did it seemed like we were the same good friends.

Elaine joins with me in extending our love and condolences to you at this time of sadness. May God's blessings be with you.

Graydon and I knew Ken as a loving and caring husband, father, and friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his family as they go through this difficult time.

We know Ken as Elder Edmunds, who served with us in the Argentina Buenos Aires North Mission. He was a dedicated, kind and faithful missionary, who served in different leadership capacities. We want to express the love and respect that hundreds of missionaries who served with him, had for Elder Edmunds. He was an example to all in obedience and humility. We express our condolences to his wife and family, at this time of grief.

Brent and Ken were at BYU in graduate school together so we have a long association with him. In addition to knowing Ken and Jane here in Twin Falls, we spent a year and a half working with him on building our home on North Temple. He was so great to work with and we just loved his ideas. We will miss him greatly.
