Timothy Ryan Yadon

Timothy Ryan Yadon (43) was welcomed into the arms of his Heavenly Father July 24, 2021 due to a motorcycle accident in Chula Vista, CA. He was born November 3, 1977 in Corvallis, Oregon the 8th child of Paul Aaron and Patricia Shurts Yadon.

Timothy was known for his sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and his ability to love and include everyone. The outdoors was his playground, you could often find him surfing the sand dunes, diving off cliffs into the sea, or hunting game animals. He had a positive influence on those he came in contact with and he loved unconditionally.

He was beloved by his work family at Henkels and McCoy. His favorite job was being a crane operator and lineman and that’s why he would show up to work everyday with a smile on his face. He recently was ensuring that the boss’ new puppy would love him by taking the time to play fetch with him; it was one of the last things he did on this earth.

Tim married Amber Dee Anderson of Grantsville, UT on February 8, 1997, they later divorced. Together they raised 3 strong willed and beautiful daughters Taysia Lynn (24), Terran Lacey (21), and Taitlyn Laney (15) all of Grantsville, UT. He loved singing and dancing with his girls. He was their hero, best friend and first love! He would cheer them up when they were down and celebrate in their happiness. There was never a dull moment when the 4 of them were together.

He met his fiancé, Ruth Aquino Moncada, of Tijuana, Mexico in 2019. She was the woman who brought love back into his life and brought him out of the darkness. Ruth was the one that he loved for the rest of his life. He couldn’t wait to introduce her to his whole family in October when they were to be wed. He will be missed by their dog, Ramsey and cat, Claw. 

Over the past few years Tim had begun to change his life for the better. This month he celebrated 3 years sobriety from alcohol. He had been working hard to strengthen his relationships with his daughters and all of his family members.

He was preceded in death by his father, grandparents: David Shurts, Alice Minch, Charles and Pauline Bedal, and nephew Johnathon Doerr.

He is survived by his daughters, mother, fiancé, and 8 siblings: Carrie Thomas, Kristine (J.R.) Vera, Kent (Carolynn), David, Jennifer (Bryan) Williams, Gerald (Tanya Nickell), Heidi (Jason) Jones, and Amy (Keven) Wallace all of Utah, 18 nieces, 27 nephews and numerous great nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. As well as his family in Mexico, whom he dearly loved.

A special thank you to those at the scene who administered first aid and medical personnel at Scripps Mercy Hospital Chula Vista for their compassionate care and service!

“I love you, kiddo!” -Dad

    He was a great friend to all. He is and will always be my brother from another mother, we used to chat all the time, the last thing he told me 2 days before his passing was he was going places and he was the happiest he’s been in years. I will miss you my friend, see you on the other side!
