Our hearts are broken because, our “Man From Snowy River”, Bryce Wayne Ehlert, 29, was called home on Sunday, November 2, 2014 due to complications from his fourth open-heart surgery for a congenital heart defect (truncus arteriosus) and advanced heart failure.
He grew up in Provo and Spanish Fork, graduating a “Don” with the class of 2004 from Spanish Fork High School. He was employed as a phlebotomist for ARUP Labs at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City.
Bryce only wanted to be a cowboy when he grew up. He loved the outdoors, his 3 dogs, 2 goats, horses, cowboy boots, cowboy hat, motorcycles, ATV's, camping, hiking, fishing, driving, family gatherings, barbecues, board games, the small town of Coalville, and spending time with his wife.
On 10-11-12, he married the love of his life, a cowgirl and championship barrel racer, Nadine Lynn Kern. He cherished everyday he spent with her!
Bryce leaves behind his parents, Alan and Sara Cox Ehlert, 1 brother, Cameron Ehlert, 1 sister, Sheena Sargent, his wife, Nadine Kern Ehlert, his in-laws, Wanda (Coal) Busch, and Jeffrey (Kathy) Kern, and grandparents Orville C. and Ines Cox of Shelley, ID.
Viewing and funeral services will be held at the Coalville LDS Church, 40 N Main, Coalville, UT 84017. Viewing is Thursday, November 6, 2014, from 6-8 pm, and again on Friday from 11:45-12:45 prior to services. Funeral is Friday, November 7, 2014, at 1 pm. Interment will be at the Coalville Cemetery immediately following.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at any Wells Fargo bank , “Bryce Ehlert memorial fund”.
Bryce lived full throttle! We will miss his energy, wit, storytelling, red-neck jokes, barbecues, and cowboy poetry.
