Dalen Eli Nyberg was born 12/08/1994 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He had a playful personality, loved to make people laugh, making jokes and smiling. Watching him smile while he made jokes was always a good time. His laugh was contagious! He cared for everyone no matter if they were strangers, and enjoyed being outside in nature where he could collect rocks or stare into the sky and rest on the grass. He loved working with his hands, playing and listening to music, and being around his family, spending time with them. Dalen was 25 years old when he passed away on 11/20/2020.

The simplest of things brought great joy to Dalen. Finding a cool rock, necklace, or anything that caught his eye and that meant something to him he would keep. He may have even given away his precious item to someone else because that’s who he was, he was a giver. He wanted others to benefit from his knowledge, presence, discoveries, and treasurers he found. He felt he was a protector of us, that it was his duty to be there for others, to take care of them. A song that he loved could give him peace, he was such an easy going guy.

Dalen’s pride was in his work and the things he created, his relationships with family, and in learning. Dalen was very smart, took pride in knowing things others didn’t, and wanted to always share with others what he learned in his life. Dalen loved to read and write, to learn new things, experience new things, living his life to the fullest. The loved ones he leaves behind will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest too.

He is survived by his mother Betina Galloway, father Dennis Alan Nyberg, step-mother Kimberly Ann Nyberg, siblings Katara Martin and husband Kevin (Mackenze, Cannon, Khylee, Maliah), Delaney Kuhnel, Evan Cox, great grandparent Kay Nyberg, grandparents Christene & Judd Lawrence, Frank Nolte, Deb Nyberg (Sara), Uncle Gregory Don Nyberg (Styler, Kaisa, Mandy), along with many other aunts, uncles, and cousins. Preceded in death by great grandparent Renee Hostetler (Rodney, Roy, Cindy), Robert Don Nyberg (Leslie, Dennis), and baby cousin Angelo Galloway.
