He was preceded in death by his parents; and wife, Kandace Armstrong.

Armstrong was the owner and operator of Twin Falls Printing Company. As a young man, he served in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. Once out of the service, he moved to San Antonio, Houston and finally to Twin Falls, Idaho. Family members said Armstrong had a natural talent for art and music; his paintings and sculptures are treasured by his family and friends. His natural musical abilities let him play a variety of musical instruments. The family said that his favorite was playing the tuba in German polka bands. He was an accomplished artisan with a passion for refurbishing antiques, they said. He loved the outdoors, especially the views along the Snake River.
