Kevin Corey Farnsworth

The world lost a beautiful soul the night of Tuesday January 14, 2020. Kevin Corey Farnsworth was called home that evening to be with his Heavenly Father. Kevin lost his life suddenly, but the love and the impact he had on everyone he met is still alive and strong within each of us. To know Kevin is to love Kevin.

Kevin was born September 17, 1993 to Corey and Debbie Farnsworth. His parents and his three older siblings were so excited for him to join the family. From the day he was born, Kevin was a light and a joy. He contributed so much love to his family and friends. Family was always very important to Kevin, and he had a strong relationship with his parents and his siblings. Kevin always had the ability to make his family laugh. As a child, he loved to be goofy and make faces at himself in the bathroom mirror. Growing up, Kevin loved to be outside. You could almost always find him outside playing or riding his bike through the neighborhood with a big huge genuine smile on his face.

Kevin had so many friends from every aspect of his life. Growing up in Kaysville Utah, he made many friends at school attending Davis High School, soccer teams, and from work associations in the various jobs he had over the years. Kevin loved cars. The fancier the car, the better. In high school he had a job mainly so he could buy himself a nice car to drive. As he got older and had better jobs, he bought nicer cars. His favorite car was “Stacy” his Lexus.

Kevin was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served an honorable mission to the Scotland/Ireland mission where he met many great and wonderful people. He gained many new friends and cherished relationships during his time serving the people of Scotland and Northern Ireland. He loved the culture and the people there. He had the opportunity over the past several years to return to the area and visit his friends, and always spoke so highly of the interactions he had there.

Kevin loved warm weather, the beach, and palm trees. It was always his dream to live in Las Vegas. He had the opportunity to make that happen the last couple years of his life. In the end, he was living his dream, and he was happy. Kevin had learned how to truly love himself, and accept himself for who he was. He had the ability to extend that same love and acceptance to everyone he met. His genuine smile and giggle could light up a room. While living in Las Vegas and Henderson, Kevin made many new friends through his young single adult ward, and his co-workers. They became his family. He always talked of the fun he had with them and the closeness they shared. He loved the vacations they took together, the hikes they went on, spending time in the hot tub or watching shows. It always meant so much to his family that Kevin had this friend-family away from home to love him and take care of him.

Our family would like to express sincere thanks and gratitude to Kevin’s Bishopric members as well as the Henderson Police Department and first responders and many others who assisted during the aftermath of Kevin’s final moments. There were many who helped and brought comfort to our family during those hours.

Kevin is survived by his parents Corey and Debbie Farnsworth; his siblings Jennifer Millard, James (Marisa) Farnsworth, and Melanie (Marc) Cornelius; as well as six nieces and nephews who he always referred to as “the cutest humans on the planet”: Mikinley, Anson, Zackary, Liam, Hudson, Presley; his grandparents Earl and June Saltzgiver, and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A viewing for Kevin will be held Friday January 24 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the LDS church building located at 615 North Flint Street, Kaysville UT 84037. An additional viewing will be held on Saturday January 25 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. with funeral services beginning at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be at Memorial Lakeview Cemetery in Bountiful, Utah.

Kevin, thank you for being such a wonderful addition to our family. We love you deeply. Thank you for your beautiful life and for your positive and profound impact on us all. You are truly missed.

    Debbie and Corey, my heart breaks for you and your family. I pray the love and support from those close to you will get your through this.

  • Kevin & I served in the Scotland/Ireland Mission together. I was one of his mission moms as I served in the office with the responsibility over the missionaries housing. Elder Farnsworth was always one of my favourite phone calls. He called often just to chat. We loved serving together and his heart was always full of fun, love & laughter. It was an honour to know & love him. He was definitely one fine young man. Love and condolences to Kevin’s family & friends. We are all grieving your early departure Kevin ❤️

  • Kevin you made such an impact on my life in the short time we worked together at Performance Radiator! We shared our love of Jesus and stories of his amazing grace over our lives. You are loved and missed! But this is only temporary here. I know that you are at the feet of Jesus worshiping our Savior!! Until we meet again…. rest in Heavenly peace!

    Kevin was such a joy to be around, the short time we worked together I looked forward to his positive energy and silly comments. I am blessed I was able to have met him and call him my friend. He was always loving and supportive & someone that was so easy to talk to. Kevin you will be missed but never forgotten.

  • Truly heart breaking to hear of Kevin’s passing. I remember seeing that smile as he played outside in the neighborhood while riding his scooter , bike, night games and running around playing. We send our sincere condolences and pray for peace, comfort and healing,

  • I had the emended privilege of knowing your son whilst on his mission in Scotland. He was truly someone you would love to be in his company
    My husband Ronnie and I Davina Holdsworth would extend our deepest sympathies to all of your family at this sad time our love and prayers go out to you all God Bless xxxx

  • I hardly have words for this. It breaks my heart to think about your loss. No parent should have to lose a child. The comfort comes only in knowing that some day you’ll be reunited. I hope you can find some peace and joy in the wonderful memories you have. He sounds like an amazing young man. I’ll be praying for you and your family.

  • To Aunt Debbie, Uncle Corey, and my cousins:
    Kevin was a great young man who could brighten anybody’s day. I loved having him around as a kid because he was like a little brother to me, something I never got to experience in my own home. From the constant teasing to the bonding time, there was never a dull moment when Kevin was around. Although I know everyone is feeling the hurt, it can’t compare to the pain you all are feeling. Losing a loved one is never easy, especially under such tragic circumstances. Sending lots of love your way from my family to yours. You all are in our thoughts.

    My deepest condolences …. doesn’t seem to convey what my heart really wants to say…. Kevin was “my boy” …. I was his mission “mummy B”…. our family accepted him and loved him as one of our own, he was such a joy to have around, his smile lit up not only a room, but the world around him. He loved unconditionally, and others felt that from him and loved him for it. We send our deepest, and heartfelt love to Debbie, Corey, and the entire family…. “Your angel wings were ready, our hearts were not…..” Till we meet again Kevin. We love you. x

    Aunt Debbie and Uncle Corey, Jennifer, James, and Melanie,

    My heart is sorrowed at the loss of our Kevin. His presence added sunshine to any room he was in, and he truly showered people with a rare form of love and acceptance. I will cherish the memories I hold of his kindness, excitement, and humor. He was a great friend to me especially in our younger years, and I always looked forward to his hugs and genuine conversations. I am so grateful for our faith and the knowledge we hold. I have no doubt he was greeted instantly with open arms from Grandma Shirley and Aunt Shirlene, among countless others.

    I pray for peace and faith to be with you all.

  • There is nothing more painful than the sudden loss of something so precious. The Lord knows. He knows, and He knows how to heal the broken heart. All will be right in the end!

    Our hearts are breaking for each of you during this very difficult time. It was mine and Carl’s privilege to see Kevin grow up as our home teacher with Corey. We have so many fun memories of him. I will always think of Kevin each Christmas because he always wanted to help me decorate. He always told me Christmas was his favorite. Every time we would see each other at church he would beeline it in our direction with the biggest grin and the best hug. Kevin I always knew you were special and had so much love to give everyone you came in contact with. Carl and I were so blessed to have experienced that love and his excitement for life. Kevin we miss you look forward to our next meeting. I cherish each and every memory.

    We were privileged to meet and get to know Kevin and the Farnsworth family. It’s easy to see why Kevin was such a great young man because of his amazing family. They are an example of faith, strength, and Christlike charity. It is hard to accept the news of his passing and we join everyone who knew him in mourning the loss of him in mortality. How we will all miss his infectious energy and joy for life. But his faith helps strengthen ours and we can be assured that he is just as energetic and joyful in the spirit world. They are blessed to have him now.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I was Kevin’s 6th grade teacher and he was such a joy to have in my class. His smile and positive personality was contagious. He was one of my favorite students. I hope you can find peace during this tough time. All my love- Natalie

  • Kevin brought sunshine wherever he went. He was always friendly and had a big smile to brighten my day. I loved watching him grow up as a friendly little boy and will miss his smile. Sending love to his family. They are such good friends and neighbors.

    I am so sorry to hear about Kevin. I was crushed when I heard the news. Kevin was an amazing person. I went to elementary and high school with him. I had the opportunity to be a TA with Kevin in the attendance office at Davis High School. He would always make me laugh and smile. I was always excited to see him. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Kevin will truly be missed!

We will miss him, and we love you guys and pray for comfort and peace to you at this time. Until we meet again Kevin!

    Dear Debbie and Corey, our hearts are just aching for your family at this time, such a terrible tragedy. The thing that helps us get through these things is the knowledge that Heavenly Father has given us. How sad for those who do not have that knowledge. We will always remember Kevin for that awesome smile he always had….He and Steve had many “chin wags” about Scotland and Ireland whenever they saw each other at family functions. Please know we love you, and pray for peace from a loving Father in Heaven to be upon you. One thing I always think about is a little saying…”Memories enable us to pick flowers in the winter”…..may you have a beautiful flower garden. Love, Kathy & Steve McGill

  • What a beautiful tribute to a beloved Son. We love the Farnsworth family.

  • I didn’t know Kevin well, but what I do remember from school was him always smiling and happy! I’m so so sorry for your loss.

  • Dear Farnsworth Family,
    BECAUSE OF SHERIE I WAS INTRODUCED TO KEVIN. We decided it would be fun for him to come to my studio for some voice lessons. He met our Malinda who taught Piano at Weber and also used our studio for her University students.
    Malinda has since passed away. Kevin was kind enough to come and sing in the choir fir Malinda at her funeral.
    He was an exceptional young man with such a tender soul and heart. He loved music and had a beautiful talented
    Voice. I mentioned to him more than once that i wished he could have been a permanent part of my vocal studio..
    He was so teachable, respectful and
    Willing to learn. Kevin had the ability
    To capture peoples hearts for you could tell he loved others mire than himself and he enjoyed serving and giving back. He captured my heart and l will forever think of him as an exceptional young man with so much potential. I know the Lord must have something very important for him to do.
    God bless all of you at this most difficult time. Love, Marjorie Tall❤️😇

Kevin had a beautiful voice and loved learning and singing. He was so teachable, respectful and capable of csptureing peoples hearts for you could tell he lived others. He was a very special young man and so TALENTED. I will always remember Him. I know the Lord must have a very important mission for him.

    Kevin, always getting you with a smile and a hug. Thoughts and prayers forever.

  • I’m so grateful for Kevin’s contagious kindness. I still see him as the adorable 9 year old who would come over on his bike, get a soda and ice cream out of the garage fridge and tell me everything going on in the neighborhood.
    I noticed that he had a talent for bringing the gift of self into the life of others.
    Remarkable man. Remarkable parents.
    Love, Andi
