Obituary for Jared Dean Wyckoff

Jared passed away in the loving arms of his wife, Connie, on the evening of Sunday February 25, 2018 while surrounded by his family. Jared was fortunate enough to pass away while in his home after a short but tough battle with cancer. He was born in Provo, Utah to Don Wyckoff and Elaine Wyckoff on September 25, 1970. After living in Colorado and Montana during his younger years, his family settled in Rose Park in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jared had the privilege and honor of marrying and being sealed to his sweetheart on June 18, 1992. Together they were blessed with three children: Christopher, Annalyssia and Karina, all of whom have a great respect and love for their father.
Jared served a 2-year LDS mission in Tampa Bay, Florida. While serving his mission, Jared gained a great appreciation and respect for diverse beliefs. Soon after his return, Jared and Connie married in the Salt Lake Temple. After their marriage, Jared attended ITT Technical Institute where he earned his Bachelors of Applied Science degree in electronics. His first job upon graduation was with Systronix, Inc. After proving his abilities and improving his skills, Jared moved on to other opportunities where he was able to develop his engineering talents. Eventually he returned to Systronix and ended his career working with the same boss he began his career with, Bruce Boyes, who has been more than just a boss, Bruce was Jared’s friend and co-conspirator in electronic engineering.
Throughout Jared’s life he was given many opportunities to serve in ward callings and to help others. The calling he seemed to find the greatest joy in was being the ward’s financial clerk where he served for over seven years. Being so detail-oriented, Jared could account for every penny--his bishops have commented on his thoroughness and diligence.
Jared loved sharing his talents and knowledge with his children, friends and family. He really enjoyed sharing his joy of archery with his daughter Anna and other family members. Jared wanted to pass down his love of wood working and building to his children Christopher and Karina, who were able to complete many projects with their father while learning from him. Jared loved hiking, camping and biking ever since he was very young. He enjoyed going on walks with his children, especially in the mountains. Through this Karina has gained a love and appreciation for nature and its beauties. Jared loved listening to his music side by side with his son Christopher as they both worked on their respective computers. Jared was an avid photographer and enjoyed going out on creative photo shoots and learning photo editing. This love of photography has been passed down to his daughter Anna and sister Virginia. He always hoped they would continue on and become the “family photographers” for family events, such as our family’s annual gingerbread house making tradition. Jared was generous with his time and building talents and enjoyed working with his mother, uncle and others on numerous DIY projects, such as building sheds, shelves, and designs for his 3D printer. He really enjoyed sharing his love and understanding of computers and gadgets with his best friend, Benjamin Holt—Ben, may you carry on that legacy.
Jared rose to the challenges given to him in his life--be it something he needed to learn, or a matter of personal development. Jared did not easily express his deepest emotions and did not always let others know how much they meant to him. However, he loved his family and friends dearly; his only concern upon his death was that his family be taken care of in his absence.
He is survived by his adoring wife, Connie Jean Wyckoff; his three children Christopher, Anna and Karina; his mother, Elaine Wyckoff; his father, Donald Wyckoff; his sisters, Ashna (Mike), Miriam and Virginia; parents-in-law, Lynn and Sharon Livingston; as well as many nieces, nephews and in-laws.
We would like to express our gratitude to Dennis and Jane Heaton for their Compassion and love that they’ve shown at this time.
Many thanks go out to all who have supported and loved our family in many diverse ways during this time of need.
