Only 45, healthy as a race horse, amazing dad to his 4 boys, legendary husband to his wife Kim, basketball coach to countless boys and girls over the years. Gutted at the news. One of the most positive people I ever knew. The world is a little less without him.

Nate Wrote: many memories of Tyler. But mainly i just enjoyed talking to him. He always had the big smile on his face and he was very engaged with whatever I was talking about. anytime i went down to his house to talk, we would talk for several hours. I loved talking to him about gospel topics, preparedness, second coming, America, and basketball.

Tyler also helped my wife several times with painting projects. He even did an incredible job on a table we had. He did that on his own, and spent several hours, all free. When he had his crew paint our house, I loved how smooth Tyler was at his job. I could see why he was so successful with his business.

Tyler and I started coaching basketball around the same time, and several years into it we had a matchup of my 6th grade boys vs. his 5th grade boys. i didn’t really want to play this game as it was a no win situation for our team. Tyler’s team won, and Tyson played incredible. Tyler groomed those boys, and several of them went on to win a state title at Lehi high school. His coaching has impacted many players.

Tyler taught me with his example. When Tyson was a sophomore at Lehi , I would watch Tyler during the games. He would stand up by Kim, and I could see his big smile, and his laughing and laid back attitude. I felt that Tyson should have been playing most of the varsity game. He was that good… But he wasn’t getting the minutes we all felt that he should. I asked Tyler how come he didn’t seem upset about the playing time. He just laughed and said he wasn’t worried about it, tyson’s minutes would come. Instead of getting lost in bitterness or resentment, Tyler seemed to always see the positive, and believed good things were just around the corner. Soon Tyson and his former two teammates with Tyler, were the main guys on the Lehi team.

Tyler had the best relationship with his four boys of any father I’ve ever seen. He didn’t teach them through fear, but through love. and they’ve all responded very well. I must admit that sometimes i’ve wished that i could be that present and loving, with all of my children…. The way that Tyler was. what an example. He had spent so much time with his family. . Rest in peace my friend. Until we meet again. Love you.

Lisa wrote: Jeff and I were lucky to sit by Tyler and Kim at a Skyridge basketball game. It was early 2020 and Covid was entering all of our lives but before the big shutdown. We loved catching up with them. Tyler is the kind of light that leaves you feeling better always. He has that gift. He was beaming with pride as he shared things about his boys that night. I don’t think you could know Tyler without knowing his love for his sons. After the game some Skyridge students were being terrible to the other team and student body. Kim headed down to give people a heads up and to call out that kind of crap. It was awesome!! Tyler didn’t see her go down in all the chaos and asked me where she was. I pointed to her down below, sticking up for what was right. She was really upset down there, how cool is it that she was standing up for decency and respect?! But I’ll never forget the look Tyler had as he looked down at her. He was smiling from ear to ear and then looked at me and proudly said “that’s Kim!”. It was very apparent in that moment how much he loved and adored her.

Tyler was also a very generous guy. He helped our family out during a time we really needed help. Jeff and I will never forget it and will always feel so grateful!

What a legacy he has!

Jeff Wrote: John Wooden said, “A good coach can change a game, a great coach can change a life.” I’m going to miss a very dear friend Tyler Hawkins who passed away this weekend. Our love and prayers go out to Kim Hawkins and their awesome sons. This world just lost one its great men, coaches, fathers and jokesters. RIP my friend.

Bill Wrote: Tyler did so many things for me and my family. He was quick to befriend us when we moved to Lehi with his broad smile and fun loving attitude. He was Kenyon’s first basketball coach and coached Trevon several times in different tournaments when he played with Tyson but the bond he made with the boys didn’t end when he stopped coaching them. Tyler and Kim and the boys would come and cheer for Kenyon and Trevon because that is how they are. Once you were part of Tyler’s life you were important to him and he was going to support you. Once while the Hawkins were on vacation in St George Tyler and Kim took their boys to watch Macie dance. They took time out of there vacation to watch my daughter dance and brought flowers. He would come talk to me when I needed someone to talk to and teach me different coaching philosophy when I had questions. He showed me how to be a loving father, husband and person. I am really going to miss him calling me Billy. He made an impact on so many people’s lives. You will be missed Tyler. I am grateful to know I will see you again. Love you Tyler.
