Coy Christensen
Elsinore, Utah

    Our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Coy Kay Christensen, 73, of Elsinore,  returned to his Father in Heaven on July 14, 2023 in Richfield, with his family at his side. Coy was born on February 19, 1950, in Richfield, and grew up in Elsinore, where he lived most of his life. He attended South Sevier High School and Southern Utah University. 
    At 19, Coy dedicated two years of service as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Kentucky, Tennessee mission. 
    Coy met his sweetheart, Nadine Faye Eyre, at a local church activity and the two were married for eternity on January 31, 1976 in the Manti Utah Temple. 
    Coy believed in the value of hard work. He developed a strong dedication to his dairy farming profession where he taught his children about responsibility, commitment, and the rewards of work. Coy worked as floor manager at Larsen's Ace Hardware, where he became a well-known friend to all who entered. 
    Coy was adventurous and approached life with a lighthearted spirit and a sense of humor. He loved to bring joy and laughter to the lives of his friends and family. Coy was known for his “dad jokes” and harmless pranks. 
    Coy loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He often brought his children with him for these activities, teaching them the value of patience and respect for nature. His favorite place to visit was Yellowstone National Park, and he enjoyed camping with his family as often as possible. Coy loved sports and was an active bowler. He always cheered for BYU and the Utah Jazz. He loved using his knowledge of sports to coach local youth basketball and baseball teams.  
    Coy's love for Christ and the Gospel enriched the lives of all those around him. He served in many Church callings including ward missions, time in the bishopric, and working with the young men and young women. Coy loved everyone. He led by example and often gave his own farm resources to those in need.
    Coy was preceded in death by his father, George Oliver Christensen; his mother Mildred Henry Christensen; brother, Terry George Christensen; brother in-law, William Edward Lee, and sister-in-law, Annette Irene Jorgensen. 
    Coy is survived by his wife, Nadine Faye Christensen; brother, Fondd (Elaine) Christensen; sister,  Cheryl Lee; Coy's children: Kay C (Jessica) Christensen, Kenneth Christensen, Mindy (Stephen) Tarouilly, Valarie (Travis) Williams, and Pamela Christensen; and his 11 grandchildren. 
    His unwavering faith, love for others, and commitment to spreading the teachings of Christ will forever be cherished and carried on by his family. 
    Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. in the Elsinore Ward Chapel, where friends may call from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Burial will be in the Elsinore Cemetery. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com 
    We love you forever Coy, and look forward to the time when we meet again on the other side of the veil.
