Hank James Nielsen, passed away September 11, 2023 in Perry, UT. He was born September 25, 1981, in Brigham City, Utah and was a man whose spirit was as vast and adventurous as the landscapes he loved to explore. He was a beacon of ambition, always eager to conquer the next peak, whether literally or figuratively. Hank’s love for the "Great Outdoors" was his sanctuary, where he found peace and serenity. An avid hunter, camper, fisherman, and golfer, Hank also had a passion for archery and trap shooting. His love for these hobbies led him to serve as the current President and member of The Golden Spike Trap Shooting Club in Brigham City.
Hank was a man of many hats. He was a devoted father, a loving son, an endearing brother, and a reliable friend. He was known for his practical jokes and infectious sense of humor. His laughter was contagious, spreading joy to everyone around him. Hank’s dedication extended into his professional life as well. He was an Area Manager in the construction industry, working for Fugal Construction Company and SCI Construction Company. His work ethic and ambition mirrored his personal life—driven, hardworking, and always striving to help others. Hank’s love for his son, Fisher, was immense and unparalleled. He cherished every moment spent with him, making memories that will be treasured forever.
Hank was not just an adventurer; he was a man who defined his own destiny, leaving indelible footprints on the hearts of those he touched. Hank is survived by his son, Fisher; his parents, Randy Nielsen and Teresa Nielsen; his brother and sister-in-law, Frank and Naomi Nielsen; grandparents: Monty and Rose Nielsen; and his nephews, Victor and Arthur Nielsen, Kort, Kade, Thomas and Nicholas Whitaker. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Linda and Vic Fichter, and Arlene Ricks and Art Redding.
