    Grant Kidd Patten was born on October 7, 1922, in Moore, Idaho, to William and Maude Kidd Patten.  He was reared and educated in Idaho.  After his schooling, he went to work for the U.S. Forest Service.  He married Margaret Whiting on January 11, 1944, in the Salt Lake City L.D.S. Temple.  He later served a mission for the Church in the Western Canadian Mission.
    After his mission Grant and Margaret moved to Montana.  He was a very active member of the L.D.S. Church.  He was Branch President in Hamilton, Montana, and Stake President and Patriarch in Missoula, Montana.  He worked in the Boise L.D.S. Temple and served a second mission with his wife in Indianapolis, Indiana. They returned in February 1994.
    Grant and Margaret moved to Nampa in 1969 to make their home.  They then purchased a farm south of town, where they have since resided.  He worked for Amalgamated Sugar in Nampa for several years, and was later the Rehabilitation Manager for Deseret Industries in Boise.  Grant enjoyed the outdoors - hunting and especially fishing - and he loved telling jokes.
    He is survived by his wife, Margaret of Nampa; 3 sons and daughters-in-law, Courtney and Ralene Patten, Nampa, David and Gale Patten, Nampa, Ralph and Mary Patten, Nampa; 3 daughters and 2 sons-in-law, Lynn and Mike Aderhold of Great Falls, Montana, Rhonda and Scott Grow, Meridian, and Rebecca Jan Levi, Nampa; his step-mother; 1 brother; 3 sisters; 23 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren.
