Earl C. Henrie
Earl Carvel Henrie, 84, passed away May 3, 2023 in Panguitch. Earl was born September 28, 1938 in Panguitch to J. Carvel and Shirley Tebbs Henrie. He married Lola Chidester, September 18, 1957 in the St. George Utah Temple.
He lived in Panguitch all of his life except for the 4 years he attended CSU, now SUU in Cedar City and graduated in 1960 from Utah State University with a degree in Animal Husbandry and a minor in Agronomy. During his college years he also worked with CSU and USU farms, learning all he could. These jobs, along with experience on his father’s and uncle’s ranching operations his whole life instilled a love for ranching and livestock farming.
He returned to Panguitch where he was able to establish his own herd of purebred Hereford cattle and horses. Over the years, he was able to expand his operation to a 500 acre farm in Panguitch and a ranch near Hatch. He always endeavored to perfect and expand his herd, which enabled him to sell breeding stock to farmers and ranchers in Nevada, Southern Utah and Northern Arizona, he really enjoyed this association. He also had a special love for horses, especially sorrel horses.
While working on his ranch, he also worked with the U.S. Postal Service and Job Service. An injury at the age of 40 made it impossible for him to continue with the ranch and reluctantly he sold his ranch and cattle operation, but kept a few horses as a hobby.
He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and truly loved his ministering families.
