Grant Michael Tingey
On March 7, 2022, in Kaysville Utah, the light of our world dimmed, and the Heavens became brighter, as Grant Michael Tingey (31) returned to the home that his Spirit never completely forgot. Grant left us too soon due to undiagnosed Cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart) and arrythmia. He passed away from a heart too big for this world.
Grant was born on February 22, 1991, in Dayton Ohio. His family moved to Farmington, Utah, in 1996 when Grant was five years old. Grant loved playing with his friends along the foothills of the beautiful mountains, beginning at even this early age. He graduated from Davis High School in Kaysville, Utah.
Grant often spoke of “Children of Light”, recognized as those with a beautiful consciousness of Christ, a gentle understanding and innate love of nature, a deeper understanding of life beyond their years, special talents, and a special “spark of light.” Little did Grant know, he was one. Grant exuded light with the entirety of his being through his incredible smile, his giant “Grant hugs”, caring words, kind actions, awesome laughter, sensitive understanding, acceptance, and on and on. The first words people invariably say whenever Grant’s name is mentioned is, “Oh I love Grant!”
Grant was the youngest child of Carl Regan and Tamra Lea Wilson Tingey. Thus, he will always be the cherished “baby” of the family. Yet, with his larger-than-life spirit, Grant shared wisdom and insights into life and world circumstances that astonished his family. His daily posts in the family “text thread” are already missed. Grant was a passionate patriot; he loved the United States of America and its divine destiny. We were immensely proud of his wisdom. Even though he was the youngest, his siblings all share how they felt supported by him, and how much they admired and looked up to him.
Grant’s greatest devotion and joy was his precious son Holden, they were beautiful together. Holden was Grant’s world. Two “bachelors” living life with joy and happiness; two “peas from the same pod…”. Our hearts ache thinking of Holden’s loss. He is loved deeply and dearly by his family. We find comfort in knowing that Grant’s eternal love for Holden will reach him from beyond the veil.
Grant loved to work with his hands and followed (along with his brother, Tyler) the occupation of his grandfather, G. Lyall Wilson, as a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning technician. Grant learned quickly and became an adept problem-solver. He built a reputation as being a personable, highly responsible and reliable employee, a hard worker with great integrity, and as a “good man.”
Grant was preceded in death by his grandparents, G. Lyall Wilson, William H. Tingey, Jr., Ruth V. Ray Kelleher, and cousin Spencer L. Tuttle. He is survived by his loving parents Regan and Tamra, his sister Michele Janée Drewery (Glyn), brother Tyler Regan Tingey, sister Jenna Lea Blodgett (Rob), and son Holden Grant Ferrante Tingey. There was an enormous amount of mutual love and admiration from nieces and nephews: Beckham, Chloë, Olivia, Boston, Emmeline, Lila, and Talmage. We cherish a heart-warming image of Grant loving, playing with, and adoring his yet-to-be named niece who will join the family in April. Grant is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins from an eternally loving family. Grant is also survived by his one remaining grandparent, Marlene Nielson Wilson. Oh, how Grant adored his Grandma!
As a family, we lovingly and gratefully acknowledge Grant’s sweet girlfriend who was his soulmate, Ally Lynn Garcia; this was a special love. Grant also fully accepted and loved Ally’s sons Riley, William (Liam), and Maverick. Thank you, Ally, for bringing so much adoration and love into Grant and Holden’s lives.
A viewing will be held for friends and loved ones at the Lindquist Kaysville Mortuary, Friday March 18, 2022, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., 400 North Main Street, Kaysville Utah. A funeral will be held Saturday March 19, 2022, at 11:00 a.m., in the Somerset Ward chapel, 1885 Summerwood Drive, Farmington Utah. There will be a viewing prior to the funeral from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Interment will be in the Farmington City Cemetery, 500 South 200 East, Farmington Utah.
Grant’s family would like to thank our friend Norris Nalder, of Lindquist Mortuaries, for his considerate and compassionate service at this time of our greatest sorrow. Regan and Tamra also have deep gratitude for our ministering brother, Dr. Val Hansen.
