On November 8th, 2019 our beloved father, Rayell Delos Heiner, hung up his cowboy hat and
boots in exchange for his wings to be put to rest and returned to his Heavenly Father. Rayell
passed away at his home in Idaho Falls, ID. at the age of 64 with the love and support of many
family and friends.
This blue-eyed baby boy was born in Afton, Wyoming on September 12th, 1955 to Leroy L. "R.L."
Heiner and Mary Sanderson-Heiner. He was later joined by four additional siblings, Jo Marie,
Jackie, Randy, and Jan whom he loved very much even when he didn't always show it.
Rayell grew up in the Star Valley area and graduated from Star Valley High School in 1973. In
1977 he married Denice Cheney with whom he brought three wonderful children into this world
but later divorced in 1989. He then decided to start traveling the country and became a long haul
truck driver having the opportunity to see and meet even more wonder places and people.
As many would agree, Rayell was definitely a country boy who was often seen out in his cowboy
hat and boots enjoying all the people in the community of Star Valley and making many new
friends along the way. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, farming with his father and brother,
driving truck, living in the beautuful valley, and spending time with his kids, especially his
grandchildren who he would spoil rotten any and every chance he got!!!
He is survived by his Mother Mary Sanderson-Heiner, his children; Kyle (Casie) of Idaho Falls,
ID., Kory (Jeana) of Logan, UT., and Heather of Idaho Falls, ID., as well as his seven amazing
grandchildren, and one great grandchild. His loving siblings; Jo Marie (Willie deceased) Castillo,
Jackie (Scott) Parks, Randy (Nicki) Heiner, Jan Heiner, and numerous supportive nieces and
He is proceeded in death by his Father Leroy L. "R.L" Heiner, brother-in-law Willie Castillo,
grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
