He died as the result of injury complication s fro m a bicycle accident while doing what he loved most, participatin g in a t riathlon and acting as a Scoutmaster.

      KF was born in 1932 to Don and Gladys Nelson in Preston, Idaho, but liv e d mostly in Utah after an eleven-year stay in Southern California. KF m ar ried his sweetheart, Marilyn Mae Stanton, in 1954. Their marriage wa s lat er solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. He was a graduate of the Uni versit y of Utah with an MS in Electrical Engineering. After retirement , he wa s an adjunct instructor at Dixie State College. He was a faithfu l membe r of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served t wice a s Bishop and as a Scoutmaster for some 30-plus years, receiving th e Silve r Beaver award and influencing the lives of hundreds of young men , includ ing countless Eagle Scouts.

      Additionally, Kaye also fulfilled two missions, first in Mongolia and mo s t recently in the Philippines, with his beloved wife and companion, Mar il yn. KF is survived by his wife, Marilyn; four children, Bradford (Kim) , E ric (Shari), Kirsten (Rick) Skow, and Marta (Thomas) Cooney; grandchi ldre n, Bret (Ashlee), Kara (Mathew) Fullmer, Kristin (Scott)Mabb, Kately n (Ne lson) Gaston, Kourtney, Tayler, Parker, Cole, Morgan, Joshua, Aaron , an d Rory; great-grandchildren, Tyler, Corrinne, Jace, and Emily.

      We will all miss him terribly and hope there are triathlons waiting fo r h im to compete in, for he truly enjoyed the race and loved the competi tion .
