12/14/1943 ~ 2/3/2023
Elden Hoyt Fackrell passed away on February 3, 2023. He was born December 14, 1943 in Provo Utah to Redick Hoyt Fackrell and Roka Bunker Fackrell. He married the beautiful Colette Davis on September 10th 1963. He loved grandma for eternity. Shorty was his #1 partner in crime, sweetheart and best friend.
Elden was our beloved father, husband, brother, grandfather and friend. He is survived by his brother Keith (Jerry) Fackrell, his sister-in-law Oneita Fackrell, his children Karla (Keith) Daybell, Wade Fackrell, Coy (Teresa) Fackrell, Troy Fackrell, his 13 grandkids, and 25 great grandkids.
He will always be remembered as GRANDPA!! He was a teacher at heart. He had a one of a kind passion for true horsemanship. His knowledge ran deep. If you had a horse problem of any kind, he knew the answer. He was the best example as a leader and patriarch for our family. His sense of humor had us continually belly laughing. He was always joking and laughing even if he wasn’t feeling well. He was the ultimate prankster, just ask his friends. He could fix or build anything, his handyman skills were top notch. He was always conjuring a fix to something, or something that needed to be built.
The best words to describe him are Honesty, Loyalty, and Integrity. If you did wrong, you knew it. If you did right, you definitely knew it. He unapologetically stuck by his strong morals and values. His lessons will always be remembered. You always got the truth from him. He was your biggest cheerleader, and also your best friend when you needed advice or life lessons. He taught us to be humble, but not weak, to be proud but not arrogant, and to be confident but not superior. He taught us to work hard, but to play even harder. He never took life for granted. If you were with him, you were loved, and you were having fun. He had a way of making everyone feel like they were his favorite in his own special way (Tailer was definitely his favorite though).
He would protect you and defend you to the fullest and he ALWAYS had your back. He is going to be greatly missed by all. You will forever be in our thoughts and wonderful memories. Good bye grandpa, until we see you again, all the love, your forever grateful family.
