Obituary

Wyatt Todd Watts was born on October 15, 1996 in Ogden, Utah to Mark and Julie Watts of Eden, Utah. Wyatt was embraced in the Creator's loving arms and returned home to his heavenly dwelling on November 26, 2017 at the age of 21. Wyatt was preceded in resting by paternal Grandfather Garland Albert Watts.

Wyatt is survived by his devoted parents, Mark and Julie Watts, his two caring sisters Autumn and Katie Watts, his paternal grandmother Bonnie Watts, and his maternal grandparents, Eddie and Georgene Strong, as well as numerous loving, aunts, uncles, cousins, and too many friends to possibly count.

He was raised in the beautiful town of Eden, later moving to Liberty as a young adolescent, continuously surrounded by the picturesque landscape you can only find in our Ogden Valley. While living in Liberty, Wyatt attended Valley Elementary, Snowcrest Jr. High as well as Weber High School where he graduated in May of 2015.

After high school he made the adventurous decision, as always, to move with a group of close friends to Bremerton, Washington and study at Olympic College for business over the course of a year.

The following year he spent a lot of quality time with both family and friends-- always knowing how to live life to the fullest he could possibly endeavor. If he wasn’t out with friends he was at a party, a football game, a concert, a festival, on a hike, out camping, or simply at home playing video and board games with those he loved most.

That same year, he did what he’s always done and attacked a new place, a new experience—never without a squad of some close friends, and moved to Wyoming to hustle hard at a power plant where he worked twelve-hour shifts, seven days a week. All that work, to be able to live a simple ski bum life for the upcoming winter season-- another journey he was able to undertake.

Wyatt was an avid lover of sports and during his life had played baseball, soccer, and basketball. He enjoyed snowboarding, hiking, snorkeling, sky diving, river rafting, water skiing, wake-boarding and was even on the Snowbasin alpine downhill ski racing team, and nobody could forget the big one-- football. Anyone that spent more than five minutes with Wyatt could tell how passionate he was about the game. He did everything from watching his team (the Steelers), to playing, and even collecting cards. At the ripe age of seven years old, he joined his first team The Ogden Valley Warriors, where he continued to play every year until he began high school.

At Weber High he was a Warrior again, playing quarterback, running back, defensive end and linebacker for the Junior Varsity Team, Sophomore and Junior year, as well as Varsity his Senior year. If all this wasn’t enough, he also played off-season on an indoor spring league as a Sophomore and Junior with his father coaching by his side and was able to bring the championship trophy home as a Junior.

Wyatt had been working with his father as a designer this last year where he was learning very quickly and distinguishing himself in what would have been an excellent and fulfilling career. He was always interested in business and had hopes of following in his parent’s footsteps by building a company all his own and he surely would have excelled.

Wyatt will be missed immeasurably by everyone that knew him. He was the kind of young man that people of all walks of life gravitated towards, and left a happier, better person. Speaking on behalf of him as his older sister has been a privilege the likes I never expected or wanted, but am honored to have and reflect on the remarkable details of his life here with us. I know he made me see and understand things I wouldn’t have been able to without him, and has left me better for it. Anyone and everyone that was blessed enough to know him these blessed twenty-one years is and will be tremendously proud to call him son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend.

In honor of Wyatt—we’d like everyone to apply some of his innate wisdom to your life. Please remember to spend and cherish as much time as you can with your loved ones, live your life to the very fullest and most joyful you can, dream big, don’t quit until you’ve achieve everything you wanted to and lastly, to be kind, generous and leave everyone around you better than when they arrived. He’s proud of you already.
