Kyle David Weloth

November 4, 1992 — January 4, 2024

Kyle David Weloth, age 31, passed away far too soon in a tragic accident on January 4, 2024. Kyle was born on November 4, 1992, the son of David Weloth and Delanie Rigsby. Kyle was raised in Roy and distinguished himself from an early age as a gifted athlete. He began playing youth soccer at the age of 5 years old, and later moved on to tee-ball, little league baseball, and then to several comp baseball teams.  While in junior high, Kyle began playing football in a local youth football league, and recently reminded his father that he scored a touchdown during his first game in Plain City. His love of sports continued through junior high and into high school. Kyle attended Roy High School and lettered in football, baseball, and swimming. We would like to say that Kyle graduated with honors, but those of you who know him know that just wasn’t the case. 

 

The friendships Kyle made in his youth grew into unbreakable bonds with individuals that he was fiercely loyal to until his passing. He was always up for an adventure with his friends. Whether it was camping on Avon (which included the occasional damage to his father’s truck), or a graduation trip to Destin, Florida, he lived life to the fullest and on his terms. In addition to his enjoyment for playing sports, he was a consummate sports fan. He loved both college and professional sports and was always ready to watch whatever game was on. He was a lifelong UTES and Utah Jazz fan (unless, as he put it, “they were sh**ting the bed!).

 

Following graduation from high school, Kyle moved to St. George to attend Dixie State University. Or as Kyle would say, the university that now has a “lame name”. While attending Dixie, Kyle worked a few different jobs before accepting a position at the Coral Canyon Golf Course. He fell in love with the work and found his true calling. He had a great passion and love for maintaining the course. He soon moved on to a position at the Entrada Country Club. While there, he was part of the team that prepped and maintained the Thanksgiving Point Golf Club before and during a PGA Web.Com Tournament. He excelled at his work at Entrada and the Director of Agronomy took a personal interest in helping him achieve his professional and educational goals. Kyle secured a working internship at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago where he met many great people and learned more about his chosen profession. His second internship took him to The Club at Cordillera near Vail, Colorado. Not surprisingly, he loved the people he met and worked with, as well as the work. He also had a close encounter one morning at the shop with a rather large bear. His final internship took him to the Pine Valley Golf Club in Pine Valley, New Jersey. This was by far the most prestigious internship of his career. Kyle loved the course and was given the opportunity to play golf almost every week while he was there. While working at Pine Valley, he applied to and was accepted into the Penn State Turfgrass Management Program. Kyle was truly following his dream at this point and graduated from Penn State in the spring of 2021. He returned home for a short time before being recruited to work at the Desert Highlands Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona as an Assistant Superintendent. Kyle was truly in his element and loved being out on the course working. Desert Highlands was designed by PGA great Jack Nicklaus. Kyle was fortunate enough to meet Jack personally and spend some time one on one with him when Jack accepted an invitation to spend a day back at the course.

 

Kyle recently decided that after an 11-year absence, he would put his career on hold to return home and reconnect with his family and friends. Not knowing how little time we had left with Kyle makes this time so much more precious to all of us.

 

Kenzie, we want you to know how happy we are that you and Kyle found each other.  The love you shared was so special and we are eternally grateful that Kyle was able to experience true love with you during his life. You will forever be a part of our family.

Austin Storey, Andrew Acosta, Braden Gregg, Braxton Strong, Parker Kenyon, Brandon Willobee, and Tyler Davis; you really are his “brothers from other mothers”.  He loved you all so much and he was a better person for knowing each of you. He will live on forever in your memories.

 

To the Weber County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Team, we want to express our extreme gratitude to each of you. You were asked to complete a very technical and dangerous recovery under the worst conditions. Despite the personal risks you faced, you brought Kyle home and provided him with dignity and respect throughout the entire recovery operation.

 

To Zoe Risser and Bob Battema, we are forever in your debt. You happened to be there when Kyle’s car went into the water. You never hesitated and made your way down to the water’s edge and tried to save him. It is a great comfort to us to know that you tried and that he was not alone during his last moments. 

 

Kyle, you made an impact on so many people that will last a lifetime. You accomplished more in your 31 years than most do in a lifetime. You will live on in our hearts and we look forward to the day when we will see you again.

 

Kyle is survived by his parents, David Weloth and Delanie and Dwayne Rigsby; his sisters, Kimberly Zisumbo (Mikus) and Carly Rigsby (Trevor Miller); brother, Braden Weloth; and the love of his life, McKenzie Madsen; aunt, Stephanie Peters (Darrell); grandmothers, Becky Archuletta and Carolyn Bray; grandparents, Lewin and Linda Rigsby; aunt, Penny Carpenter; uncles, Art Weloth (Cindy), Ken Wilks (Kim), and Marc Spruiell (Gail); and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Nick Archuletta and Jerry Spruiell.
