Kenvin Lyman 1942 ~ 2011 Kenvin Lyman, artist, musician, farmer, cook and bon vivant died in Salt Lake City on Feb. 6, 2011 at the age of 68. He passed away peacefully as a result of injuries sustained in a fall at his beloved Avenues cottage. He was born Kenvin Myers Lyman in Spring Lake, Utah on April 14, 1942 to parents Grant and Elizabeth Lyman and grew up on the family ranch. Kenvin graduated from Payson High School and later from the University of Utah with a Master of Fine Arts. He married Linda Lesher in 1962. They had three children and were later divorced. At the time of passing he was married to Sofia Angkasa, whom he described as "the love of my life." Kenvin was a true renaissance man; a light show artist, commercial illustrator, singer/songwriter as The Utah Kid, commercial organic farmer and cookbook author. A man of many accomplishments he was, in the end, content to call himself a bohemian; a generous and free spirit who nevertheless gave much to his friends and the world. He is survived by his wife Sofia; sister Jennie Ruth Alvey (husband Ron); brothers Fred, Jay, Brent (wife Susan) and Ross (wife Amy); children Bowen (nee Heather), Peter, Angelina and Kathryn; grandchildren Elizabeth, Orion, Nadia and Jude Xavier. A celebration of Kenvin's life will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at One Mind Studio, 216 W. Paxton Ave. (1170 South), Salt Lake City.
