Hyrum Jessop Jeffs

Oct. 28, 1945 – April 17, 2019

Hyrum Jessop Jeffs, 73, passed away April 17, 2019. He was born Oct. 28, 1945, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Rulon Timpson Jeffs and Kathleen Jessop.

Hyrum grew up in Sandy, Utah, but he lived all over the western United States throughout his life. He was a man of many trades. Hyrum had a sense of adventure and loved to try new things.

Hyrum was at times a playful father and a bit of a tease with the young children.  In the children’s older years, he let them make their own mistakes but was a listening ear.

He was preceded in death by his father, mother and three children. He leaves behind wives, 21 children and 66 grandchildren.
