Kelly Doyle Coombs, beloved son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on July 7, 2019 at his home while surrounded by his family after his battle with cancer.
Kelly was born May 4, 1963 to Doyle and Ann Coombs in Nephi. He graduated from Juab High School as an accomplished wrestler and football player. He married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Jamie Sperry, on August 6, 1982 in the Jordan River Temple. Together, they raised four children, Jenna, Chett, Camee, and Hayden, in Nephi.
Kelly loved classic trucks, motorcycles, dogs, custom semi-trucks, and putting chrome on everything he drove. He served in the Utah National Guard and in many callings in the LDS Church. He helped his father build a successful business, Doyle’s Diesel, and spent his career as a mechanic and heavy-machinery operator.
He lived a life of service and sacrifice, touching the lives of many local community members and strangers he met while working as a mechanic. He always seemed to find someone that needed a helping hand, whether it be driving a stranger to Los Angeles or providing meals to people in need.
Kelly is survived by his wife of thirty-seven years, Jamie; children, Jenna (Jerry) Shepherd, Chett (Trisha) Coombs, Camee (Kade) Brough, and Hayden (McKenzie) Coombs; parents, Doyle and Ann Coombs; parents-in-law, Jim and Dixie Sperry; siblings, KC (Sherry) Coombs, Patsy Ragle, Khristie (Perry) Allred, Tawhnye (Randy) Evans, Torry (Tina) Coombs, Roger Sperry, Curg (Carleen) Sperry, and Jared (Carla) Sperry; and ten grandchildren, who loved their Papa Kelly: Jhet, Karsen, Waycee, Caydence, Brooklyn, Lucy, Hannah, Remee, Sunee, and Hudson.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Nephi Second Ward Building, 222 South 100 East, Nephi. Friends and family may call on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Anderson Funeral Home and prior to the services at the church on Thursday from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
