Eugene (Gene) Dyches

1931 ~ 2021

Dad passed away in the early morning on Friday, December 11, 2021, at age 90, at Chancellor Gardens in Clearfield, Utah.  He was born October 18, 1931, in Wales, Utah, to Charles and Macel Beal Dyches.  They moved to Moroni, Utah when he was six years old.

He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving four years during the Korean War.

Dad married his sweetheart, Bonnie Nielson, in San Diego, California on July 17, 1953.  They were later sealed in the Ogden Temple for eternity.

He worked at Hill Air Force Base as a shift manager at the Airfreight terminal where he retired.  After retirement he worked at ZCMI and later at the Davis County Handicap Services.

Dad and mom loved to travel.  They especially loved Yuma, Arizona in the winter.  Dad was a computer whiz and a handyman.  He could not stand to see anything broken and could fix almost anything.  He loved a wide variety  of music, taking pictures and family videos.

He loved the comfort of his home and neighborhood.  He always said he had the best neighbors anyone could ask for.

Dad is survived by his loving wife Bonnie of 68 years, his daughter Debbie and son-in-law Kevin Blair, grandchildren; Cassie (Spencer) Young, Natalie Blair, Shandi (Joe) McFadden, Ali Dyches, great grandchildren; Gage Staley, Ryker Nasfell, Ava Young, Sadie Young and brother-in-law Robert Nielson.  He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Todd Trevor Dyches, his In-Laws, Reed and Virginia Nielson.

We will dearly miss you dad,
