Obituary

Anthony Nicolas Nilsson, our loving son, age 32 passed away on August 7, 2022. Anthony was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 27, 1990 to Gary Richard Nilsson and Leanne Nilsson Walter. He grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, Hawthorn Woods, Illinois and Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  He graduated from Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, IL in 2008 and received his Associates Degree in Business Administration from Delaware County Community College in Media, Pennsylvania.

Anthony was a camping enthusiast, and he loved frisbee golf, hiking, sailing, chess and white-water rafting. Anthony’s family was everything to him.  He spent countless hours with his sisters, father and grandparents playing cards and enjoying regular family meals, including a weekly tradition of Taco Tuesdays and Wednesday grandparents’ dinners followed by a cribbage competition.

Anthony was most recently employed by BioFire Diagnostics, LLC. in Salt Lake City as a Production Team Lead where he truly enjoyed his work, immensely loved interacting with his co-workers and was building a career with his most recent promotion.
