Virgil Steven Nyman passed away peacefully at his sister Carol’s home in Orem on Wednesday, April 7, 2021. Virgil was born in Provo, Utah on July 14, 1966, the 6th child of Monte S. Nyman and Mary Ann Sullivan. He primarily grew up in Provo, Utah where he attended and graduated from Timpview High School.

He traveled with his parents on their various BYU assignments to Jerusalem, Hawaii, Illinois,
and Virginia. At each of these places Virgil was loved by the various students who were
participating. Virgil has a keen memory and would often recite the names of the many who
befriended him.

Dogs loved Virgil and Virgil loved dogs. He also was an ardent fan of University of Utah
Football and particularly of Coach Kyle Whittingham. Besides his family, WWE Wrestling, KitKat candy bars, and especially Coke brought him joy. His insightful observations and quick-witted tongue often generated much laughter.

Virgil is preceded in death by his father Monte and his mother Mary Ann as well as his sister
June Owen (Kevin). He is survived by his 6 siblings: M. Scott Nyman (Becky), Lori Olson
(Marty), Dessie Mitchell (Todd), Mary Jo Smith (Darren), Lorna Miller (Steve), and Carol
McWhorter (Skip). He has many nephews and nieces whom he loved.

Since the passing of his mother in 2016, Virgil has taken turns living with his various siblings.
It was a privilege and a blessing to “take care of” Virgil during this time. Virgil helped unify the
family and he helped make those who interacted with him better people. He is an inspiration to his family and others.

Although Virgil struggled with many physical and social challenges, he endured them valiantly,
with faith in his Savior Jesus Christ and in the Plan of Salvation.

Services will be held on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home located at 646 East 800 North in Orem, Utah. A viewing will be from 9am until 9:45am followed by the memorial service at 10 a.m. A Live Broadcast of service will begin at 10 a.m. and may be viewed at, were condolences and memories may also be shared with the family.

We wanted to come to Virgil's funeral but were on a trip out of state with family. We returned yesterday and were grateful to be able to watch the video this morning. It was a beautiful service, full of love, faith, devotion, and inspiration. We have loved the Nyman family through the years and honor you siblings and your families for your love and service to Virgil! It is a beautiful example to us. Lynn and Kaye Garner

So many great memories of Virg at school, football practices & games and more recently an RSL game. I'm glad to call him my friend. I'm going to miss that guy!

I remember when I was in 1st grade at Edgemont, Virgil was my 5th grade "reading buddy". He would just hand me the book and I would read it. He would grunt, smile that wonderful smile of his, and hit me on the arm. Good memories of a great guy. -Reed Wilson

Church softball as teenagers. Virgil came to bat at a critical time and the defense moved way in. Virgil swung hard and cracked one over their heads. Go Virg! Paul Kohler

Virgil was such a kindhearted soul and was so friendly to all people! He made this world a better place. What a joy for him to be reunited with his parents and his sister, June. Love, prayers and hugs to all his siblings for their compassion in caring for their beloved Virgil! With love and admiration to the Nyman family! Blair and Debbie (Murray) Tucker
