WESTON, ID — Curtis Lee Dagley, a tried-and-true cowboy, finished his last roundup on Aug. 19, 2013, in Weston, Idaho. He was born to Kenneth Charles and Willa Geniveve Funke Dagley on Friday the 13th of Oct. in 1944.
Curt was a cowboy 100 years out of his time. His early life was an adventure of catching wild horses, hunting bear and cougars. His life sounds like tall tales from a dime store novel but it was all true. Curt met his wife, Marilyn, in college over a little black cat. They married on June 14, 1965, in Newton, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple. Curt graduated from USU with a degree in range management and animal science. After college, he managed ranches in Texas, Montana, Wyoming, and California. He worked for Moorman Feed Company which brought him back to Utah. He started his lifelong dream of a horse ranch with a little grey colt. He took great pride in the horses he raised. His goal was always to raise horses with brains, ability and good disposition.
He is survived by his Marilyn, his wife of 48 years, his children Maria (Vance) Koppenhafer, of Mancos, Colo.; Shawn (Larissa) Dagley, of Auburn, Wyo.; Travis (Sha) Dagley, of Ignacio, Colo.; and SuniLyn (Donavon) Shurtliff, of Weston, Idaho; 11 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, as well as his brothers Keith (Pat) Dagley of Ogden; and Trent (Ashley) Dagley of Logan. He was preceded in death by his parents and a grandson, Cody Dagley.
Funeral services will begin 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 23 in the Weston 1st Ward LDS Chapel with Bishop Randy Austin conducting. A viewing will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Webb Funeral Home, 1005 S. 800 East in Preston and Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the church in Weston. Interment will be in the Weston Cemetery.
