Friends of Joel Mendenhall

Joel Mendenhall Palomar Mountain Rancher

Many of you had the privilege of knowing one of the finest, hard-working young men that you’d ever meet, gentle-hearted and kind to all, Joel Mendenhall. As a local cattle rancher, Joel was carrying on the family tradition that goes back to the mid 1800’s, working on the land with his cattle business. Monday, he was repairing some heavy equipment at their feed lot and lost his life in a tragic accident.

A Celebration of Joel’s life will be Sunday afternoon, October 6th, at 1:00, on the Mountain

Click to see a video from 2012, and hear Joel tell about Home Grown Cattle Company and life as a 6th Generation Rancher on Palomar Mountain, along with his lovely wife, Jenna, their three young daughters, and his wonderful parents, Frank and Janice Mendenhall.

In lieu of flowers, a trust fund has been set up for some immediate needs, and the children’s college education at www.mendenhallgirls.com
