    Jonathon T. “Jonny” Hymas, 38, died on Dec. 31, 2011 due to injuries sustained in a tragic automobile accident in Arizona. Jonny was born on December 25, 1973 in Montpelier, Idaho to Terry and Ruth Hymas. He grew up in Liberty, Idaho and when he was 14 he moved with his family to Logan, Utah. He attended Logan High School.

    Jonny was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served an LDS mission to Las Vegas, Nev.

    He married Jennifer Coleman on Aug. 30, 1996 in the Logan LDS Temple. They later divorced. Their three children, JoLacey, Kitara, and Scout were his pride and joy.

    After Jonny’s mission he and his wife returned to Las Vegas, Nev., where he discovered his joy of biking. He worked for Escape Adventures and Las Vegas Cyclery and several years later moved to Moab, Utah to manage Moab Cyclery. Later, he started his own bike rental business. Recently, he moved to Boulder City, Nev. to manage All Mountain Cyclery.

    When he wasn’t working he loved to be outdoors. He also enjoyed woodcarving, making others laugh, and was always on a bike. He loved to be around people and was willing to help in any way.

    Jonny is survived by his ex-wife, Jenny; children, JoLacey, Kitara and Scout; his parents, Ruth and Terry Hymas, and siblings, Nathan (Ronette) Hymas, Athena (Davis) Stovall, Anna (Naitt) Merrill, Sarah (John) Pett, Buffy (Colby) Petersen, Laura Hymas, and Jennie Jeppson.

    A celebration of life was held in Moab, Utah this past weekend. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 11 a.m. at the Logan Cemetery in Logan, Utah.

    The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation for all of the love, kindness, prayers, compassion, and support that have been shown through this difficult time.
