Timothy Ryan Yadon

Obit Timothy Ryan YadonTimothy Ryan Yadon, 43, was welcomed into the arms of his Heavenly Father July 24, 2021, due to a motorcycle accident in Chula Vista, California. He was born Nov. 3, 1977, in Corvallis, Oregon, the eighth child of Paul Aaron and Patricia Shurts Yadon. 

Timothy was known for his sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and his ability to love and include everyone. The outdoors was his playground — you could often find him surfing the sand dunes, diving off cliffs into the sea, or hunting game animals. He had a positive influence on those he came in contact with and he loved unconditionally. 

He was beloved by his work family at Henkels and McCoy. His favorite job was being a crane operator and lineman and that’s why he would show up to work everyday with a smile on his face. He recently was ensuring that the boss’ new puppy would love him by taking the time to play fetch with him; it was one of the last things he did on this earth.

Tim married Amber Dee Anderson of Grantsville, Utah, Feb. 8, 1997, they later divorced. Together they raised three strong-willed and beautiful daughters Taysia Lynn (24), Terran Lacey (21), and Taitlyn Laney (15), all of Grantsville. He loved singing and dancing with his girls. He was their hero, best friend and first love! He would cheer them up when they were down and celebrate in their happiness. There was never a dull moment when the four of them were together.

He met his fiancé, Ruth Aquino Moncada, of Tijuana, Mexico, in 2019. She was the woman who brought love back into his life and brought him out of the darkness. Ruth was the one whom he loved for the rest of his life. He couldn’t wait to introduce her to his whole family in October when they were to be wed. He will be missed by their dog Ramsey and cat Claw.  

Over the past few years Tim had begun to change his life for the better. This month he celebrated three years sobriety from alcohol. He had been working hard to strengthen his relationships with his daughters and all of his family members. 

He was preceded in death by his father; grandparents David Shurts, Alice Minch, Charles and Pauline Bedal; and nephew Johnathon Doerr. He is survived by his daughters, mother, fiancé, and eight siblings: Carrie Thomas, Kristine (J.R.) Vera, Kent (Carolynn), David, Jennifer (Bryan) Williams, Gerald (Tanya Nickell), Heidi (Jason) Jones, and Amy (Keven) Wallace, all of Utah; 18 nieces; 27 nephews and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews; cousins and friends; as well as his family in Mexico, whom he dearly loved.

A special thank you to those at the scene who administered first aid and medical personnel at Scripps Mercy Hospital Chula Vista for their compassionate care and service!

“I love you, kiddo!” – Dad
