Thomas Russell Shurtleff, 61, passed away June 19, 2022 (Father's Day) of natural causes. He was born July 8, 1960 in Ogden, UT, to Thomas Brown McDonald and Rose Lynn Munson. At an early age, he was given to Edmund Charles Shurtleff and Carolyn Sue Shurtleff to be raised.\n\nHe married Lisa Brock on October 1, 1982, later divorced, and together they had four children.\n\nHe loved camping, fishing (especially collecting the worms), speed-walking, listening and singing to music, yard work early in the morning, and playing darts with his brother Ed.\n\nHe loved helping anyone and everyone he could; he may not have had a lot to give but he gave everything he had to help other people. He taught us so much in life, and would always say, "Work with what you have,” and “Never be ashamed or embarrassed about who you are and where you come from.” He was worried about leaving a legacy for his children, but in the end, the lessons of life he taught them will be passed on generation after generation and they will be his legacy forever.\n\nHe is survived by his ex-wife, Lisa Brock, and their four children, Heather Paul, Amanda Shurtleff, Dustin (Karissa) Shurtleff, and Austin (Tasha) Shurtleff. Also survived by his father, Ed Shurtleff, and seven brothers: Kevin (Tammy) Shurtleff, Daniel Shurtleff, Robert Shurtleff, Ed (Lyndy) Shurtleff, Ricky Shurtleff, Randy (Tara) Shurtleff, and Jeff (Lisa) Shurtleff. Also, two sisters: Deborah (Bob) Timmons and Glenna Falk. He will also be missed by his many grandchildren and all the family and friends whom he loved and helped.\n\nPreceded in death by his birth-parents, Thomas and Rose, as well as his mother Carolyn Shurtleff and his grandson Tanner Shurtleff.\n\nSpecial thanks to Charles Yett, whom Tom became close friends with while he lived in Tennessee, and carried on that friendship even after Tom came back to Utah.\n\nCelebration of Life will be held on July 08, 2022 (his birthday) at 6 pm at 3692 South Centennial Road, Magna, Utah, 84044. Come celebrate by telling great life stories of Tom. There will be a barbecue, music, and fun times, because making his family happy was what mattered most to him. Dedication of his ashes will be at 6 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted to cover cremation costs.
