Sam Nielson

Sam T. Nielson
7/11/1975 ~ 9/27/2012
Sam passed away on September 27, 2012. Anyone who met Sam for more than five minutes knew they had encountered a truly unique, funny, caring and talented person. Sam had a great sense of humor and a beautiful smile. Even as a small child his musical and engineering talent was noticeable. Sam excelled at mechanics and could build just about anything mechanical you could imagine. He loved the outdoors, guns, any kind of musical instrument, odd ball movies (he was notorious for buying just about any movie from the $5 movie bins) and he was passionate about music. Sam loved his children Hailey, Angelica and Rowdy. He was a good dad and his children miss their daddy immensely. He is survived by his mother Pat Taylor and step-father Roger Taylor, his father Tim Nielson and step-mother Sheri Nielson and his siblings Pete, Travis and Heidi. We will all miss Sam. He was a loving friend; father, brother, son, uncle, cousin and husband. We all hope Sam has found the peace that he struggled to find while he was here with us. With heavy hearts we say goodbye to a truly beautiful and unique soul. Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday October 9, 2012 at 10 a.m. at the Granger Community Christian Church, 3232 West 4100 South, West Valley, Utah. A visitation will start at 9:30 a.m. Interment, West Jordan City Cemetery.
