Clyde Jason Reaveley

December 13, 1991 — May 16, 2023

In loving memory of Clyde Jason Reaveley - a beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, and friend. Clyde Jason was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on December 13th, 1991 to his proud parents, Dave and Mindy. He was preceded in death by his father, Clyde David Reaveley; his stepdad, Bryan Penrod Aitken; and his grandfathers, Clyde Joseph Reaveley and Richard Grant Passey. He is survived by his mother, Mindy Aitken; sisters, Heather (Tim) Cartwright, Marchele (Stuart) Roskelley, Monica (Josh) Jones; brothers, Bryan (Kendra) Aitken, Daniel (Haylee) Aitken; many nieces and nephews; and grandmothers, Karen Passey and Ida Reaveley.
Clyde was full of life and energy. His blue eyes and big smile would light up any room. His laugh was contagious, and his sense of humor and personality radiated. Clyde was genuinely kind, always helping and motivating others. He was a loyal friend and had a remarkable ability to connect with people from all walks of life. Clyde had a way of making everyone who came in contact with him feel important, heard, and seen. He was truly uplifting to those around him - and even more so to his family. He was determined and persistent when he set his mind on something. He loved to learn, read, study, and research things he found interesting. Clyde loved being the cool uncle. It is safe to say, when it came to play time, he was unquestionably the favorite. Clyde loved his family dearly and was fiercely protective of his mom and everyone he loved.
Clyde loved the outdoors, including camping, hiking, climbing, and fishing. As a boy, he loved the scouting program and all of the adventures he had in the great outdoors. 
Clyde was a great athlete and excelled in most everything he tried - skateboarding, water skiing, snowboarding, Taekwondo, basketball, golf, track, wrestling, rugby. However, his true loves were football and bodybuilding. In addition to the competition and training, Clyde loved the opportunities sports gave him to spend time with friends, uncles, his stepdad Bryan, and his grandpa Joe.
Clyde started playing football at age 9, where he gained friendships with his teammates that lasted his entire lifetime. He learned life lessons from football of self discipline, hard work, and respect.
After football, bodybuilding became his passion. Clyde dedicated himself to learning everything he could about the sport and the human body. Clyde worked as a personal trainer and loved to teach and help others achieve their goals. He built up and motivated his friends and his competition. He was an inspiration to many, both in and out of the bodybuilding community.
Although Clyde faced personal struggles with addiction, he managed to overcome them working for several years as a staff member at Lifeline for youth, as well as Odyssey House in Salt Lake City. Clyde was loved by the kids and parents of his lifeline clients, and made an impact on many lives.
Sadly, mental health and addiction ultimately took Clyde's life. We wish he could have seen in himself all the goodness he so easily saw in others.
As a family, we are so grateful for the coaches, teachers, counselors, friends, and mentors who had a positive impact on Clyde's life. If you know someone who is struggling, reach out - let them know they are loved.
While our hearts are broken that Clyde was taken from us far too soon, we know he has made a difference for other people. His memory and influence will live on in our hearts and our minds forever.
A celebration of life will be held on June 24, 2023. Watch social media for more information.
We love you Clyde Jason Reaveley!
