Dwayne Radican passed away peacefully on October 6, 2021 at St. Alphonsus Hospital, surrounded by his wife and daughters. He was born in Dallas, Texas on February 28, 1971. He lived in Greenville, Texas and Alamogordo, New Mexico before moving to Boise ID in 1997 with his future wife, Sarah. He married Sarah (Patrick) Radican on March 8, 2009. Survivors include wife Sarah, daughter Laura (Taylor) Holt, grandson Everett Holt, daughter Shannon (Matthew) Fox, and daughter Molly Radican. Dwayne was preceded in death by his younger brother Jaymie Wayne Radican, his father Dewey Wayne Radican, and his mother Ellen Lois Adams.
Dwayne was a smart, big-hearted, devoted family man who loved all things techy. His work ethic made him a valued employee throughout his career in UNIX systems. He enjoyed gaming, as well as building computers and gadgets. He was always best pleased when he repurposed old tech into a new gadget. He was a meticulous craftsman. He had a soft spot for little dogs. He loved caring for his home and lawn, and was teaching himself carpentry. His wife and daughters always turned to him with complete confidence when anything needed fixed. He was the family tailor, borrowing a phrase from cartoon character Hank Hill to insist that it was a masculine skill: “I am not sewing. I am upholstering, which is one of the five original industrial arts.” His myriad interests and excellent memory always made a conversation with Dwayne fascinating and enlightening. He loved travelling the American highways with his wife and family. When travelling, there was always room in the itinerary for a stop at a museum or a piece of roadside Americana. He greatly enjoyed celebrating the Fourth of July with his family. He was fascinated by NASA’s work and always wished he had been able to watch a space shuttle launch. He had a witty sense of humor and loved puns and wordplay. His grin and laugh were big and bold and infectious. He has left a void in many hearts and will be deeply missed.
Interment will be at Cloverdale Funeral Home on Friday, October 15 at 11:30am. A memorial service will take place at Discovery Church, 1177 Roosevelt St., Boise ID, on Saturday Oct 16 at 3:30 p.m.
