South Weber - William Gloyd Hyde, 79, completed his mortal journey and returned to his heavenly home on November 30, 2022. Bill was born June 8, 1943 in Logan, Utah to Eldon and Hulda Hyde. He grew up in Hyde Park where he loved to spend time outdoors hunting and fishing with his dad and older brother Richard. Bill graduated from North Cache High School where he excelled in basketball and was offered a scholarship to play for a University of New Mexico. As Bill was preparing to start a family, he decided to decline the scholarship and began a career in construction. This was the beginning of a life-long love of painting which would span more than 58 years.
Bill married his high school sweetheart Judy Pritchett on June 19, 1962 in Preston, Idaho. They are the amazing parents of three sons Bruce, Brett, and Brandon and were sealed together with their family on December 12, 1981 in the Ogden, Utah temple.
Bill lived life with a passion and always enjoyed whatever he was doing. His unparalleled work ethic and dedication to his craft made him well known in the commercial painting industry and gained him many life-long friendships. He was fortunate and proud to have worked on temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the Bountiful, Oquirrh Mountain, Draper, and Layton temples in Utah and the Hermosillo Sonora temple in Mexico. He was fortunate to work over the years with his two oldest sons Bruce and Brett.
Bill had an amazing natural ability for anything related to athletics. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting mule deer and shooting sports, golf, and fly fishing with his grandsons. He also liked baseball, softball, and pickleball. His competitive nature was legendary and made for fierce competition. His recent love of biking on his new e-bike was something special - you likely saw him zoom through your neighborhood this summer! He loved spending time with his family camping, hunting, and fishing. He loved family barbecues and taking trips with Judy. He found joy in having pets and was very fond of their cats Shadow and Willow..
Bill was a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints where he served diligently as a member of two bishoprics, High Priests group leadership, Elder’s Quorum presidency and instructor, Primary teacher, Sunday School President, home teacher, and minister. He loved those he served and served with. He had a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and demonstrated that commitment through his love of others. If you ever sat and talked with Bill one on one - you knew he genuinely cared for you. He loved his family dearly - Judy was his rock and true love and they did everything together. He loved his sons and their spouses. He loved his grandchildren and every moment he was able to spend with them. He was so proud of who they are and what they are becoming. He counted it a great blessing to have many other personal relationships and close friends.
Bill is survived by his wife Judy, sons Bruce (Sharon), Brett, and Brandon (Lindy), grandchildren Kaden (Heidi), Jade, Jerick, and Jordan, sisters Charlotte (Charles), Julie, and brother Ron (Jolene). He was preceded in death by his father Eldon, mother Hulda, and brother Richard.
