11/8/1986 ~ 9/10/2022
Shaun K. Hintze passed away Sept. 10, 2022 doing a double backflip into Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
He would say “ If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much stinking room.”
He was born Nov. 8, 1986 in West Valley and grew up in Fairview.
He rocked it at everything, including being a dad, snowboarding, diving, dirt biking, cooking, hacky sack and, of course, the mosh pit.
He loved time with his buddies playing yard games, going shooting, fishing and pool. He enjoyed traveling to Wendover and being the exciting one in any crowd.
He worked as a framer, gardener and doing landscape-related construction. He worked for more than 10 years for a landscape company in Park City run by extended family members.
He is survived by his lifelong companion, Mary Evans, and his three children, Evan, Haley and Kyle, all of Salt Lake City. He loved his family more than anything in the world.
Other survivors include his mom, Julie Kumor of Fairview; his dad, Duane Hintze; brother, Joey Hintze; and sisters, Brittney Hintze, Tiffany Hintze, and Mandi Lemus of Manti.
He is preceded in death by his beloved grandparents, Marliene and Keith Llewellyn, as well as countless friends, and not to forget, Snicker the snake.
Services will be held Friday Sept. 23 at 11:00 a.m. with friends and family gathering at 10:30 a.m. in the Fairview Cemetery. Be prepared to tell some stories about his life and HUGE personality.
The funeral recording will be available for 60 days form 9/23/2022.
