Arthur P. Nylander

April 14, 1916 - March 19, 2014

Our dear Dad, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather passed away on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. Dad was born in Ogden, Utah on April 14, 1916 to Arvid and Anna Rustad Nylander. He married Phyllis Hansen on July 2, 1937. Their vows were later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

They spent 66 years together raising their kids, Ron and Colene. One of Dad and Moms greatest joys was spending time with family. Dad owned and operated Intermountain Neon Sign Company for 34 years. He retired in 1975.

He was an active member of the LDS church. He had been Bishop of the Ogden 7th LDS Ward and a member of the Lorin Farr Stake High Council.

Dad’s passion in later life was golfing with his buds.

Dad is survived by his son Ron Nylander; daughter Colene Eskelson; grandchildren: Berit, Joel, Chet, and Maggie. Great grandchildren, Morgan, Mandy, Grant, Ella, Chloe and Bode.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife Phyllis, his parents, and one brother: Carl Nylander, and one sister: Elsie Scoville.

The family would like to thank Envision Hospice, and especially Nina for her tender loving care of dad.

I just heard of the passing of your dad. I want you to know I'm so sorry I missed his funeral. I love Bishop Nylander. He was so good to me and such a great and loving leader. Thank you for sharing him with all of us. Linda

In my early years working at the bank, I always enjoyed visits from my Mom and Dad when they came to Ogden. After the passing of my dad, your father made my days brighter when he came to the bank on 12th St. He reminded me so much of my father. We usually discussed his latest golf outing and his appreciation for family. One regret I have is never taking the time off to play golf with him. Art was right there by me when I retired in 2009. I loved and admired his kindness and gentle ways. Sorrry I missed his funeral.

Dear Nylander family, I wanted to let you know that I thought your father was one of the kindest men I know. He was my bishop when I was a young adult and a good friend of my parents, Floyd and Mazie Barnett. They enjoyed the friendship with your parents and loved spending time with them. I'm sorry I won't be able to come to the funeral, but I wanted you to know I was thinking of your family and offer my condolences. Sincerely, Kathy Barnett Ostberg

Dear Ron and Colene. Sherry and I are sorry for the loss of your father. We are in St. George and will be unable to attend your fathers funeral. Your father and mother were great people and showed many kindnesses to me (more than I deserved). Growing up I never went on a family vacation. Going to your cabin at Bear Lake was a great experience, one that I have not forgotten. Ron, I often think of the good times we shared. Thanks for teaching me how to ski after a fashion. When I joined the army I had my ski gear sent back to Mass. and went skiing several times at Stowe Vt. I went skiing once after the Army and that was it. Colene, I enjoyed our short visit at Tuacahn awhile ago. I was impressed how I saw your mother face as we talked. Again I am sorry for your fathers death. He was a kind man. Sincerely Buddy

(I am Barbara Fernelius Spiekerman's eldest daughter.) I remember visiting your folks and watching Art in his shop. He was the first person to greet us when we were first married and moved into his ward. We loved seeing him at the grocery store -- he was so friendly -- one of Mom's favorite cousins!! I know you will miss him greatly. He was always a wonderful man! I wish I could make it to the services but will be working that day! Know you are in our prayers at this time!
