John Toupin

July 25, 1996February 25, 2019

John Robert Toupin, 22, of Twin Falls, Idaho, passed away on February 26, 2019, in Twin Falls, Idaho.

He was born to Amy Forsyth and Robert Toupin on July 25, 1996. From the very beginning, John cared more for others over himself. He was the first to offer up his seat, give what was needed, and jump in to help. His kind, gentle soul shined light onto every person’s life he encountered.

John’s passions include his dog, Mezy, drawing foxes, writing comics, and diving head first into the newest games. John enjoyed walks with his father, catching up on movies, and playing with his nephews and nieces. He always got a laugh at scaring his mom, as she taught him to drive and gave her the latest rundown on comics and movies. John also loved going to the Furries gatherings where he was named “Decibel Fox”. He loved the people there and he considered them as a part of his family.

John graduated from Canyon Ridge High School in 2015, and was working towards pursing school at College of Southern Idaho.

John is survived by his mother and step-father Amy and Guy Forsyth, father, Robert Toupin, sisters Aubrey Toupin, Carrie Forsyth, and Roberta (Brandon) Kincheloe, and brother Josh (Misty) Biggs. He was adored and admired by his 4 nephews (Chris, Gavin, Ethan & Zander), 3 nieces (Suvanna, Jasmine & Gabriella), aunts, uncles, and friends. He is preceded into death by his grandparents, Russell and Stella Biggs, John and Mary Toupin, Uncle Dave Church, and cousin Taylor Biggs.

Services will be announced at a later date.

The family requests that memorial contributions be made in honor of John Toupin to the Twin Falls Animal Shelter. Condolences can be left at

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family. I met John through our local fandom group. He was a bright joyful presence at our meets, funloving and always smiling. You could not have met anyone as nice and kind as him. He was an absolute sweetheart and we will all miss him dearly. Rest in peace my dear friend, I will never forget you.

I loved John like a brother I knew him as Deci the fox. He was always so kind to me he knew me in real life as Dan in the furry fandom as "Bullet". He never judged my physical disability nor my social inadequacies. His mom Amy I know as well. I wish her and her family love and comfort at this time, and to know we loved and will still and always love john for his kindness and willingness to give to others and his caring joyful heart... He will always be Deci the fox and my little brother and will live on in my heart.. Much love. Dan AKA Bullet
