On January 14, 2020, Nyle Wesley Stott passed away in Delta, Utah. Nyle was born in Meadow, Utah on February 18, 1942, to Wesley and VauNess Thacker Stott. He married Constance “Connie” Jean Hostetter on September 14, 1963. Later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple. They were the parents of Michelle (Schelleigh) and Mitchell Nyle Stott. Nyle’s family was always foremost in everything he did. He was a wonderful husband and father, including loving Mitchell’s friend, Tony Hancock and his family, as his own.
Nyle’s family moved to Beaver County shortly after he was born, and he attended school in Milford and Beaver where he graduated from Beaver High School in June 1960. He then graduated from the Salt Lake School of Electronics. He worked for Adair TV Repair while attending trade school and then part time until 1985. After graduation, he worked for KTVX as a cameraman - then advanced to technical director, KUED as cameraman, and University of Utah as electronics technician before moving to Delta in 1985 where he worked for IPP until retiring in February 2007.
He was a man of many talents which he shared freely. Even before the flood of 1983, he was interested in self reliance, food storage and emergency preparedness. He served as stake and ward preparedness director for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman who backpacked, hiked, Jeeped and camped with his family and friends all year round no matter the weather. He went from a Honda 50 motorcycle to a Harley, then when his kids were old enough he went back to trail bikes, then four-wheelers – all the while aware of and teaching the need to stay self reliant.
One of his main hobbies was photography, much of his expertise being acquired at Channels 4 and 7. After moving to Millard County, that interest turned to finding and photographing petroglyphs, hieroglyphics and interesting subjects mostly in the desert.
Nyle had torn apart and put together radios, phonographs and other things electronic even as a child and purchased his first CB radio early in his teens. That advanced to amateur radio (HAM) which led to CERT (Community Emergency Responce Team) for 25 years. Even after he could no longer participate, he assured the team that he would help if needed.
He was preceded in death by his precious daughter: Michelle; his parents and his sister: Frances Gale. He is survived by his wife: Connie; son: Mitchell; grandchildren and great-grandchildren; sister: Yvonne (Varnel) Parkinson; and many wonderful nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the members of the Intermountain Homecare & Hospice who were all so wonderful during Nyle’s last months.
