Nickolas Trent Thayne was born January
14, 1994 and died in an auto accident on December 14, 2017
in American Fork Canyon at the age of 23. Nick was born
to Trent David Thayne and Christine Smith-Thayne in Salt
lake City, Utah.
Nick was a very loving, caring, and genuine young man that
we’re all very proud to have known and had the opportunity
to be a part of our lives. He was the best husband, father,
and son anyone could ask for. He taught so many people so
many things and would help anybody in need just to make
life easier for them. He was very creative, artistic, and
extremely ambitious with his creations whether it be cars
or relationships. He brought happiness to everybody that
he was around with his infectious smile and playful face.
He gave everybody respect and genuinely liked everybody
and wanted the best for them. We will miss him greatly more
than anybody will ever know. Among the car enthusiasts and
groups that he was a part of he was a legend of his time.
And if you’ve ever been “nicked” you know
what we mean. Goodbye Son, Husband, Father, and Friend.
We will see you again and we know you will always be with
us and we will always have you in our thoughts.

the love of his life, Mercedes Wendolyn Thayne age two.
