February 13, 1970 - July 4, 2019
Hugh Fred Nyman, age 49 passed away unexpectedly on July 4, 2019. Hugh was born on February 13, 1970 in Heber City to Emma Arlene McKnight and Fred Hugh Nyman. Hugh has one step brother Michael Nyman. On August 6, 1994 Hugh married his best friend April Fox in Lehi, Utah. They had 25 great years together with many adventures together including just this year their first cruise and a trip to the Bahamas. Hugh was just getting to really enjoy life and do things he wanted to. Hugh loved working on vehicles from an early age and rebuilt many of his from the ground up over the years from trucks, race cars and even a jeep for rock crawling. Hugh received degrees in Auto Body and Mechanics from UVU in Orem. Being a big kid at heart, Hugh also loved big trucks ad heavy equipment. Hugh found his ultimate calling in life when he decided to bring home an 89 Peterbilt in 2006, rebuilt and painted the entire truck and started Nyman Trucking. Who could miss that bright yellow truck with chrome and flames and Hugh always made sure it was top notch. A few years ago, Hugh had to completely rebuild it again due to an accident and he went even further with it to make it just right and it turned out to be the best finished project of all his vehicles. Hugh loved to teach his nephew Waylon his knowledge from letting him run equipment to changing the oil with him at age 5. He had so much fun letting him explore and learn just like Hugh did. Anyone that knew Hugh has seen how he can take the worst looking vehicle including a tank and purchase it then turn around and sell every one of them. April was no longer surprised to come home and find random things in the yard as there was never a dull moment in the Nyman household. Hugh is survived by his wife April (Heber City), 2 kitty fur babies Bobsey and Mitsy. Also survived by parents in law Lynn Jay and Phyllis Fox (Lehi, Ut), sister in law Tami Fox and his favorite nephew Waylon Fox (both of Lehi, Ut). Hugh has 2 surviving uncles Jr and Neil McKnight and many loving cousins and friends who have supported him through the years as well and hope they know how much Hugh appreciated and loved them all. Preceded in death by his parents Fred and Arlene Nyman. Friends may call for a visitation at the Heber Valley Funeral Home in Heber on Thursday, July 11, 2019 from 6-8 pm. A graveside service will be held Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11:00 am in the Heber City Cemetery.
