Jory Robert Hurtado
1976 ~ 2017

Jory Robert Hurtado passed away unexpectedly February 16th, 2017 from an accidental drug overdose. Jory was born June 8th, 1976 in Vicenza, Italy to Jess and Joan Hurtado.

Jory grew up in American Fork, Utah. As a young boy Jory loved to go on trips with his family to Lake Powell and attend football games at the University of Utah. Jory continued to enjoy those activities throughout his life. Jory followed in his older brother's footsteps and played soccer for American Fork High School and joined the American Fork High School Marching Band playing trombone. Jory served an LDS mission to Taichung, Taiwan. Jory married Sarah Busker in 2000 and they had a beautiful baby girl, Alyvia, in 2003. Jory graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Utah. Jory and Sarah later divorced and maintained a close friendship. Jory battled depression and drug addiction in his later years and was recently very proud of his many sobriety tags he kept with him at all times.

Our fondest memories of Jory are of him being a goof ball, fearless, never backing away from a challenge, easy to laugh, the center of attention, and demonstrating his incredibly high tolerance to pain. Jory enjoyed painting, watching movies, listening to music, playing games, and being with his daughter Alyvia, who was the love of Jory's life. Alyvia fondly remembers adventurous tubing with Jory at Lake Powell, going to movies with him at the theatre, and playing video games together. We know Jory is devastated knowing his time with Alyvia has been cut short. We are comforted knowing Jory will be her guardian angel and continue to watch over her.

Jory is survived by his daughter, Alyvia, as well as his parents, Jess and Joan, and siblings: Joel (Kristie), Jared (Emily) and Janae Nelson (Jason). Our family is comforted knowing Jory was welcomed in Heaven by his loving grandparents.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 10:30 am at the Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East, America Fork, Utah. Family and friends may call from 9:30 to 10:30 am prior to services at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to Alyvia Grace Hurtado at the University of Utah Credit Union to be used for her education.
