Holden Binks

2006 ~ 2022

Holden Binks passed away at the age of 16 on July 16, 2022. He is survived by his mother, Bree, his father, Jason, his sister, Jillian, and his brother, Kepler, as well as by a large community of friends and additional family. He enjoyed music, gaming, skateboarding, and playing with the family’s dogs, especially his favorite, Neil.

A public memorial service will be held for Holden on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, Utah. The service will be an informal celebration of Holden’s life with no structure or speeches; you’ll be encouraged to share stories with his family and friends, and you’ll be able to write a note commemorating him. Feel free to stay as long as you like. His family encourages you to dress comfortably and wear red, Holden’s favorite color.

You can plant one or more trees in the Highlands of Scotland in “Holden’s Grove”. Please visit holdensgrove.com to learn more and donate. Soon, the Holden Binks Memorial Foundation will be formed in the name of preventing teen suicide and helping families impacted by the death of a loved one. His family invites you to support the Foundation once it’s formed to allow Holden’s name to live on and help others.


Words barely seem enough. May the peace of God guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. Peace, Holden.
