Tyler Scott Nield

March 8, 1977 — July 22, 2012

Tyler Scott Nield, 35, passed away on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at his home in Bountiful, Utah. He was born in Boise, Idaho on March 8, 1977, the sixth of nine children born to Thomas and Karen Nield. When he was 5 months old, his family moved to Pocatello where he attended Chubbuck and Ellis elementary schools, Hawthorne Jr. High and Highland High School where he graduated with honors.

He served in the Philippines Tacloban mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. On January 2, 1999, he married his high school sweetheart, Amy Christine Richman, in the Salt Lake City Temple. Together, they brought into the world four children: Jaxson (10), Addyson (7), Halle (4), and Ava (2 months). Tyler earned an Electrical Engineering degree from Utah State University and a Juris Doctorate specializing in intellectual property from the University of Utah Law School. He was most recently employed at Symantec in Orem, Utah.

Tyler enjoyed being with his family. Some of his greatest joys were taking his son, Jaxson, down the biggest waterslides and highest roller coasters. He also loved skiing, boating and spending time with the Richman family. An avid BYU fan, he cheered with his brothers until his voice went hoarse over every touchdown and 3-point shot. Tyler was a great athlete; he excelled in many sports, especially basketball. He shared his talents as he coached and mentored his son. He was intelligent, witty and clever, bringing laughter and fun to every family gathering. Tyler was also very creative: he made and edited family movies, was a self-taught guitar player and a gifted poet. Compassion and tenderness were characteristics of his heart. Tyler's sensitivity allowed him to serve and include others; he was always the first to lend a helping hand and was the first to help others feel comfortable and accepted.

He is survived by his wife, Amy; son, Jaxson; daughters: Addyson, Halle, Ava; parents: Thomas and Karen Nield; in laws: Bruce and Ranee Richman; siblings: Eric (Nancy) Nield, Carrie (Rodney) Chandler, Chris (Dayna) Nield, Bryan (Tonya) Nield, Benjamin (Tracy) Nield, Troy (Lacy) Nield, Abigail (Travis) Hull; brothers-in-law : Matthew (Anna) Richman, Brian (Brittany) Richman; sisters-in-law: Aleesha and Ashley Richman; and 27 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by Joshua Nield (brother), William and Viola Nield (paternal grandparents), and Henry and Ilene Hurst (maternal grandparents).

Tyler loved his wife and children dearly. He will be sorely missed.
