Jeffrey Warren Thurston 1976 - 2011

Jeffrey Warren Thurston, 34, went home to be with his Savior on August 10th, 2011.

He was born to Frank and Julianne Thurston on October 7th, 1976 and raised in Moab, Utah. He graduated from Grand County High School in 1993, and after graduation he took a college construction class from Kent Dalton. From him, Jeff discovered that he loved the creativity and physical work of building. During his lifetime Jeff was involved in many construction jobs, but the one of which he was most proud was becoming a crew foreman in the construction of the new bridge over the Colorado River.

In 2002 Jeff married the love of his life Janelle Hansen. They are the parents of three children, Kaidden Nash, Kaitlyn Francis, and Christian Jeffrey. Jeff loved hiking, camping, and spending time with his family. He was a loving husband and father. His wife and children were his pride and joy.

Jeff was preceded in death by his grandfather Sherwood Dickerson, his grandmother Frances Thurston, and his grandmother Ruth Dickerson.

He is survived by his wife Janelle, his sons Kaidden, and Christian; a daughter Kaitlyn, his parents Frank and Julianne Thurston, his brother Gregg (sherry) Thurston, a nephew Austin Thurston, a niece Kaylee Thurston, and his grandfather Warren Thurston.

Jeffs family and friends will remember him as an amazing drummer, a caring friend, a hard worker, a loving son, a wonderful husband, and a great father.

There will be a Remembrance of Life gathering and potluck at the Spanish Valley Mortuary on Thursday August 18, 2011 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Please come and share your memories of Jeff.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
