Michael Nester

February 23, 1960 — May 21, 2020

Michael Lynn Nester, age 60 of Spanish Fork, passed away on May 21, 2020. He was born February 23, 1960 in Salt Lake City to Marlin and Beverly Nester. He married Charlene Price for time and all eternity in the Jordan River Temple on September 10, 1982. Together they had three children: Jennifer, Jessica and David. And one adopted son Antonio. He worked at Purco for 19 years. He started as an Insurance Adjuster, then moved his way up into the Accounting Department.

He graduated from Stevens-Henager College at the top of his class in Accounting. His greatest joys came as he cheered on his children and grandchildren in whatever endeavors they pursued.

He loved spending time with his son fishing, hunting, and enjoying the outdoors together. In 2011 he received the "Silver Beaver Award" which is one of the highest scouting awards. He left a lasting legacy of faith, integrity, hard work, commitment and persistence.

As a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints he treasured his testimony of his Savior Jesus Christ. His beliefs were the cornerstone and foundation of his life and he shared those with others in many church callings. He served in the Young Men's on a ward and stake level, he was the Executive Secretary for a young single adult stake presidency, a temple worker for the Provo and Payson Temples and worked in the boy scouts and varsity scout organizations.

He lived true to his testimony of the restored gospel until the very end.

He is survived by his loving wife, Charlene, his children Jennifer (Brad) of Tooele, Jessica of Spanish Fork, David (Chantelle) of Logan, Antonio (Brooke) of Provo, and Sister Julie Fillmore of Salt Lake City. He leaves behind 5 grandchildren: Max, Aurora, Sophia, Eowyn and Desmond who he loved spending time with.

He is preceded in death by his parents Marlin and Beverly Nester, his sister Janet Stanfield and brother-in-law Keith Fillmore.
