Ammon Alder

December 9, 1974 — March 23, 2024

South Weber, Utah

Our sweet brother, uncle, and son Ammon Alder, 49, of South Weber Utah, passed away on Saturday, March 23rd at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. His entire family surrounded him as they removed his life Support. His loved ones held his hands as he took his last breaths.

Ammon was born December 9, 1974, to Vicki and Reuel Alder. After two daughters Reuel finally got the son he wanted, spoiling him so much his older sisters became intensely jealous and thus “Operation Torture the Little Brother” began. Somehow, he survived and went on to graduate from Clearfield High School class of 1993 and then with honors from the DATC in computer programming. He had a great passion for all things computer and technology related. For many of his family he was the emergency speed dial for tech mishaps and never complained when lending his expertise.

Ammon was a big kid and loved collecting all sorts of things. His prized mutant ninja turtle bus, studio Ghibli collection, cups for his Colas, Lego, gaming systems and extra computer parts. He shared his gaming joy with his nephew Andrew and lent out his Ghibli collection every time his nephew Sam, also a big fan, asked. His sister Rachael said he was always sharing his treats and turned a blind eye when his nephew Dani would sneak them. He loved to cook and experiment with different recipes. He had a unique way of grilling by keeping a spray bottle filled with water and using it to extinguish fires when the meat erupted in flames.

Ammon is preceded in death by his mother Vicki Lynn Alder and his little brother James Alder.

Ammon is survived by siblings Jennifer Walton, Christina Alder, Diana Baker, Rachael Barnett, Elijah Phoenix, Jose Alder, baby sister Tara Jane Alder who is on the way, nephews Daniel and Andrew Barnett, father Reuel Alder, stepmother Jane Alder and many more nieces and nephews.

The family of Ammon wish to extend our sincere gratitude to the medical staff at Intermountain Medical Center for the kindness shown during his last hours. We’ll be forever grateful for the thoughtful heart rhythm memento given by his nurse Tonja. Ammon will be missed but I’m sure his brother James is already playing practical jokes and keeping him busy, and our mother exasperated.

A Graveside service for friends and family to honor Ammon will be held at 11 am on Thursday, March 28th, 2024, at Uintah Cemetery (1500 East 6450 South, Uintah, Utah).  Prior to the graveside service, a viewing will be held from 9-10:30 am at the Russon Mortuary Farmington (1941 North Main Street, Farmington, Utah).
