In Loving Memory of Jimmy Hatfield
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Jimmy Hatfield, a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Jimmy was born on October 18, 1927, in Springville, Utah, and he peacefully left this world on August 12, 2023. He was 95 years old.
Jimmy's life was filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. On December 23, 1950, he married the love of his life, Ruth O'Brien, in a joyful ceremony in Spanish Fork, Utah. Their union was a testament to the enduring power of love and commitment.
Born and raised in Springville, Jimmy attended school there and established deep roots within the community. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and drew strength from his faith throughout his life.
Professionally, Jimmy made his mark as a skilled brick mason and contractor. His dedication to his craft was evident in the numerous structures he helped bring to life, leaving a lasting legacy that will be admired for generations to come.
Outside of work, Jimmy was a man of diverse interests. He found solace in the quiet moments spent farming the land, and the thrill of the hunt and the joy of fishing were passions that brought him closer to nature.
