Nyron G. Chidester, 64 of Salt Lake City, passed away July 1, 2000.

He was born October 19, 1935 in Lehi, Utah to James Orville and Sara Beth Chidester. The family moved to Price, Utah where he spent most of his early years.

Nyron served in the U. S. Air Force for four years. He attended the College of Eastern Utah and the University of Utah. He worked in electronic engineering for more than 35 years. He was an extremely talented man who taught the lost wax casting method of jewelry making at the Pioneer Craft House for 14 years and was often sought out by others to design jewelry for them. He was an ARS consulting rosarian and belonged to the Utah Rose Society where he took many ribbons for his beautiful roses which he never hesitated to share with others. He enjoyed bowling, gardening, and sharing his harvest with his friends and family.

Nyron married Karen E. Lasnik on February 23, 1963 in Salt Lake City, where they made their home for their entire married life.

He is survived by his wife, Karen; son, Patrick Chidester of Salt Lake City; daughter, Aimee (Joseph) Hamblin and granddaughter, Kaitlin Hamblin of Syracuse, Utah; sisters, Clyta Richens, Helen Rudd, and Elizabeth Lake. He was preceded in death by both parents.

Nyron was a kind and gentle man who was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed him. He loved children, small animals, and everyone that he knew. He grew some of the best roses and raspberries in town. He will be missed by many.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 12 noon at Neil O'Donnell and Sons Mortuary, 372 East 100 South, where friends may call one hour prior to services.
