William Lynn Syddall, beloved husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 5, 2023 in Logan, Utah at the age of 67.
He was born on October 12, 1955 in Richfield, Utah to Veon and Berl Syddall. He was the lone son with 4 sisters who adored him. Lynn spent much of his youth on Monroe Mountain herding sheep with his dad. Lynn also participated in athletics, drama, rodeo, and riding club. He graduated from South Sevier High School in 1973. His love for horses carried on throughout his life and he spent much of his time breaking, riding, and shoeing horses.
Lynn's professional career was spent as an electrical lineman. He apprenticed in Monroe City and finished his career at ATK Thiokol. He was an absolute professional and took great pride in his quality work.
He married Julie Monsen and together they raised 5 children then later divorced. He went on to marry the love of his life, Kristine Smith, on November 28, 1997. Mason, their youngest son, blessed their lives a year later completing their blended family of eleven. They were sealed in the Logan Utah Temple and spent 26 wonderful years together.
Lynn was a riveting storyteller and never met a stranger. He was able to connect with anyone he encountered and treasured their experiences. He was a true cowboy -as tough as old boots in many ways- yet surprisingly tender and compassionate towards those around him. He was unfailingly dedicated to his family and selflessly loved them without abandon. He had a gift for being present and making others feel special. To know him was to love him.
Lynn was generous with his time and all that he had. He was a man of strong convictions and principles. He spent many years serving the Lord and his fellow men in many capacities as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had a thirst for the Word of God and learning about church history. Lynn and Kris were called as service missionaries in 2022 serving at the Logan Temple.
He enjoyed the simple things in life: A well tended garden, an honest day's work, and a BYU football win.
Lynn is survived by his wife Kristine Smith Syddall, his children Thomas Syddall, Emilee Syddall Elsen, Amanda (Gregg) Phillips, Thad Syddall, Lindsay (Mario) Martinez, Jessica (Jamie) King, Corey (Kelsey) Jessop, Tyler (Shayne) Jessop, Brianna Jessop, Mason Syddall and his sisters Connie Dickson, Carolyn (LaRell) Bagley, Debbie (Ross) Christensen, Tammy (Clint) Powell and mother-in-law Jalaine (Cal) Hoover. He is loved immensely by his 34 grandkids, 12 great grandkids, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his dad Berl Henry Syddall, his mother Veon Allred Syddall, son Richard David Jessop Jr. and father-in-law Alva Norris Smith Jr.
Funeral Services will be held in his honor Friday, August 11th at 12 p.m. at the Hyrum Stake Center 600 S 200 E, Hyrum. A viewing will be held the night before from 6-8 p.m. at Allen-Hall Mortuary 34 E. Center St., Logan and also an hour prior the day of services. Interment will be at the Paradise Utah Cemetery.
