Lynn Robert Blood

Lynn Robert Blood, 74, of Kaysville, Utah, passed away peacefully at his home on December 22, 2021, with his best friend and companion of 58 years, who he adored more than anything else in the world, by his side. As he sat in his chair to rest, holding his sweet wife’s hand, he looked her in the eyes one final time and with his last breath declared, "I love you!" -- and then he was gone. Lynn passed away following a courageous, 2-year battle with cancer. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Lynn managed his illness with strength, dignity, humility, and grace. What a blessing it is to know that his soul is finally at rest and that he is in the company of departed loved ones on the other side of the veil. In the final days leading up to his passing, he and his family experienced several, tender mercies. As Lynn awoke each morning, he spoke of visitors who came to greet him at night. In parallel, his family experienced dreams and spiritual impressions of the veil thinning around him and of loved ones coming to prepare Lynn for his return home. Without a doubt, Lynn has been reunited with his oldest son, Cary; parents, Louis and Hazel; brother, Donald; great granddaughter, Stephanie; and countless other family members and friends who preceded him in this stage of his eternal journey.

After graduating from Davis High School, Lynn dedicated his life to the service of his family, friends, community, and country. Lynn proudly served his country for 23 years in the United States Navy, and later in the United States Air Force Reserves, where he achieved the rank of Master Sergeant and was recognized as a Gulf War Veteran. He was employed as a “citizen airman” at Hill Air Force Base, in the 419th Fighter Wing, where he maintained and repaired military, fighter jets. Lynn served his community as a volunteer firefighter for Kaysville City, as a scoutmaster of 25 years with the Boy Scouts of America, as a youth coach, and as a service missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Most significantly, Lynn served and loved his family and friends, and his memory will forever reside in the hearts and minds of those he inspired. In his spare time, Lynn loved being outdoors, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, running, walking, riding ATVs, coaching, playing computer games, eating popcorn, watching western movies, discussing history, and spending time with those he loved.

Lynn is survived by his wife, Utahna; children, Nicole, Christy, Ralph, Jinette, and Rodney; grandchildren, Jeremy, Cody, McKenzie, Michael, Austin, Hannah, Daniel, Riley, Redding, Justice, and Bridger; great granddaughter, Scarlet; siblings, (Donna), Raymond (Dolores), Jacqueline (Pete), and Beverly (Steve); his non-biological twin, Gwen; his dog, Copper, and a host of loving in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, and long-time friends.

Lynn’s wife and children held a private service last week and request that any donations made in his honor go towards cancer research with the Huntsman Cancer Foundation at https:// donate.huntsmancancer.org/ .The family expresses appreciation to the medical professionals and staff who attended to Lynn’s treatment and care. They also extend a heartfelt thank you to Lynn’s longtime friends, including Greg Hansen and Martin Romero, for their continual inspiration and for keeping his spirits bright.

Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. (Exodus 23:20)
