Hyrum was an important disability advocate who played the instrumental role in passing the Katie Beckett Waiver in TN which will benefit thousands of other families. He loved being the center of attention. He had a big ear to ear smile and loved to play pranks. He loved to hold hands and to be held. Being outside in the sunshine swinging, floating in the pool and hiking to waterfalls and camping in the woods were his favorite things to do. He also loved playing with his sister, Daisy and all his cousins. He was the biggest BYU fan and loved spending his Saturdays with his dad watching the games.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020 from 11 a.m. until the funeral service at 1 p.m. in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 105 Peyton Rd., Lebanon, TN
