December 31, 1967 - December 31, 2012
Jeffrey Karl Thalman, 45, passed away on December 31st 2012 at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jeff left us too soon, and will be deeply missed by all who loved him. We will greatly miss his amazing ability to light up any room he was in. Jeff was born on May 28th, 1967, and was raised in Provo, Utah, by his parents, Karl and Carol Thalman, with his older sister, Joan. Jeff was a dynamic young man, adored by his family, friends, and many in the Provo community. He became an avid golfer at a young age, and quickly earned many accomplishments in the sport, including helping his team win three state championships at Provo's Timpview High School. Jeff then received a golf scholarship from the University of Utah, where he later graduated with a degree in business. He always taught others – yes, even in Provo – the importance of being a fan of the Utes. In the final months of his life, Jeff could be found at Rice Eccles stadium or the Huntsman center, cheering on his school's teams. Jeff was very successful in his business career, owning and operating The Recognition Source for many years. He spent time living in both Texas and Florida, before returning to Utah. In recent years, Jeff traveled frequently between Salt Lake City and Provo, to spend time with his parents and to help care for them. He had a great ability with landscaping, and took pride in keeping a pristine yard, and making sure that his parents' yard always looked the same. Jeff loved the outdoors. He loved soaking up the sun at the beach, playing sports, and fishing (often with his dad) at Strawberry Reservoir. Jeff is survived by his parents, Karl and Carol Thalman of Provo, Utah; his sister, Joan (John Taylor) of Herriman, Utah; nephews Michael, Ryan, Travis, and Kyle; niece, Shannon; and many beloved friends and members of his extended family. He is preceded in death by his nephew, Brandon. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 5, 2013 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo, Utah. Friends may call one hour prior to services. Condolences may be sent through his obituary at www.bergmortuary.com.
