E. Tyson Thacker left us way too Early on January 10, 2021 at the young age of 39.
He was born August 23, 1981 to Susan (Fisher) and R. Todd Thacker in Roosevelt, Utah.
He was raised in Upalco, Utah until the Family moved to Jensen, Utah in 1997.

Tyson married the Love of his Life Autumn Piva on July 19, 2003, in Vernal, Utah.
He loved so unconditionally and cared very deeply, touching the hearts of so many throughout his short life here on this earth. He was a "counselor" to many, and truly held the World on his shoulders. (Yet he would not let anyone take his burdens and pain off of his.) Saying, "I'm a Big Ole Boy and my Shoulders can carry a lot, it's my job to be a Friend!" and he was one Hell of a Friend.

Tyson worked hard and always did whatever it took to "Get-R-Done!" He absolutely loved working in the Oilfield and enjoyed everything about it. From driving winch trucks, to doing roustabout work, pumping and much more. He knew a lot about many things in the field and loved being "oilfield trash!" He especially loved the people he worked with.

He shared a love of Farming and the Cowboy way, and really enjoyed raising Longhorns. He loved their unique colors and the way their horns grew. He shared this love with his kids, watching them in the field brought them all a lot of Joy. He shared this love of farming with his Dad, and it brought them closer together, Working cows and fixing their Ranch in Meeker. He loved that place and had many dreams of what it will be.

Tyson has a great love for his Nephews and Nieces. He was close to each one them and he taught them each many different trades. From riding horses, to hunting, fishing, rough housing, and of course teasing and most of all Caring!! They Loved him Dearly.
Tys had many nicknames and loved giving others nicknames. He had many of his own: Tigger, E.T., Messy Marvin, The Silver Back Gorilla, Sausage Fingers, Wildman, Thack, Free Spirit, and many more.

Family was the most important thing in the world to him though. He made a point, especially the past year to spend much quality time with his Kids. Teaching them lifelong skills that they will cherish and last forever!! He always said Love you before he left the house, on the phone and text messages. He told the family a lot the past year, "Family is all we have and we need to keep us all together!"

"TELL PEOPLE YOU LOVE THEM, YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU WILL SEE THEM AGAIN!" Tyson Thacker
