Brian Kenyon Eflin, 61, passed on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at his home in Sandy, Utah.

Brian was born on July 31, 1960 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Raised in Littleton, Colorado by father Kenyon Eflin and mother Joanne Eflin-Garrison along with two older sisters, Roxanne and Jenni. Brian’s ingenuity in mechanics grew throughout his youth. He graduated from Heritage High School in 1979, began his career at General Eletric and started his family in 1980. Brian had 43 years of distinguished service at General Electric as an Appliance Technician and Team Leader Trainer. Brian loved fishing, fast cars and Texas Hold'em. He was witty, funny, stubborn and fiercely competitive. Brian was a wholly unique person, to walk lightly, carry a big fishing pole and to strike up a conversation with anyone.

He is survived by his wife, Donna Dodd; his mother Joanne Eflin-Garrison, his sisters Roxanne Eflin and Jenni Willuhn; his three children, Cody Jo Eflin, Chris Eflin and Gregory Eflin; two step-children, Hunter Dodd and Paula Dodd, and 9 grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his father, Kenyon Eflin.

Brian was such a fun friend and outstanding neighbor. He will certainly leave a large hole in our community and in the hearts of those who called him "friend."

I worked with Brian for many years at GE Appliances and he was always very professional and kind to me. I also remember him as a very skilled technician who really understood his stuff. You could also tell that he loved his family we will miss him

To Donna and the entire Eflin Family... We are so sorry for your loss. Brian was such a great friend, brother in law, mentor, match maker, fellow fisherman, mustang lover, and just a great person to talk to. We have so many memories to remember him by and he will be deeply missed. RIP our friend. Love, The DiStefano's
