7/30/1979 ~ 9/17/2004
Jonathan David Skoubye, 25, was taken from us on September 17, 2004, in a car accident while doing the GIS work that he loved.
Born July 30, 1979, Jonathan was a son and brother, one in a million. He never failed to dazzle us with his brilliance and brilliant sense of humor. Aside from teaching his younger sisters everything from reading to math games, he continually showed his love by teasing and tickling them to bits. We will forever treasure the years we had with him and, if we could, would count the days until we can be with him again. After serving an honorable LDS mission in Jamaica, he graduated from the College of Eastern Utah (2002) and then from the University of Utah with a bachelor's degree in Geography (2004). At the time of his death he was employed by the State of Utah.
In death, he joins his grandparents, Reed L. Tyler, Genee Tyler West, and Norma B. Skoubye. He is already sorely missed by his parents, David and Annette; sisters, Maranda, Jennifer (Jeremy), and Caroline; niece, Ellie; grandparents, Morris and Pauline West, and Clarence and Lynne Skoubye; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
A funeral will be held at 10 a.m. at the Canyon View LDS Stake Center (9119 So. 1300 E.) on Thursday, September 23rd. Friends and family may call at Larkin Sunset Gardens (1950 E. 10600 So.) on Wednesday, September 22nd, from 6-8 p.m. and, preceding the funeral, from 8:45 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. at the Stake Center. In lieu of flowers, friends and family are encouraged to donate to the LDS Humanitarian Fund. For online condolences please see larkinmortuary.com.
There are not words to express our sorrow at his loss nor our joy at the prospect of seeing him again.
