Tyson Christopher Gottfredson

1985 ~ 2022

Tyson Christopher Gottfredson, age 36, passed peacefully at home surrounded by his loved ones on December 21, 2022, from his courageous fight with ALS. He was born December 26, 1985, to Kimberly Ann Haynes and Garren Paul Gottfredson in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Ever since he was a kid, Tyson was a talented drummer, golfer, and an avid Detroit Lions fan. He was adventurous and the life of the party. Tyson’s contagious energy knew how to make you smile and brought out the best in everyone. His beautiful smile and dimple will be sorely missed.

Tyson is survived by his girlfriend Summer Clements, dad Garren Gottfredson, and siblings Fayth Taft, Collin Taft, and Aubriell Sessions. He’s preceded in death by his mom and nana.

A viewing will be held Friday, December 30, 2022, at 11:00 AM at Larkin Mortuary on 260 E. South Temple in Salt Lake City, followed by a graveside service at 2:00 PM at Murray City Cemetery, 5490 S. Vine Street in Murray.

It's always the good ones taken away so soon. Tyson, you were always kind, funny and a fun dude. I am sad that you are gone. You were loved by so many people and I am so happy I got to see you. Rest in peace and party hard in the afterlife.

I don’t have children, so my nieces & nephews are my kids. My great nieces & nephews are my grandchildren. My nephew Brandon Parkin & Tyson were like brothers so Tyson was like a son. They did so much together like playing football. Playing golf. Going to concerts. Playing the drums in separate bands. Working together. My memory isn’t like it was so I know there’s memories of Tyson I’m forgetting. One I remember is playing football with Tyson & Brandon on Thanksgiving. We used to go to a time share in Wallsburg for Thanksgiving . We loved that place. It was a fun memory having Tyson’s family there that year. Summer I offer my sincere condolences to you, your family & friends. God bless you for your tender Angelic care of Tyson (and all the other care givers who helped you). I KNOW we will all see Tyson again. ALWAYS REMEMBER: the separation from Tyson is TEMPORARY. We all love you & the tender care you rendered to Tyson. I hope you can feel all of our collective love & support to you & your family. We love you! 🙏❤️

So sorry to hear about your loss of Tyson. It’s heartbreaking to lose one of your own and is something difficult to imagine happening.
I’m sure this past year (since he was diagnosed) has been hard on him and all of you. I hope you can find peace during this challenging time.
Sincere condolences,
