Tadd Robert Menlove

Tadd Robert Menlove, 27, died June 9, 2017, as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident while returning to his home in North Salt Lake. He was born December 30, 1989 in Payson, Utah, the son of Mindi (Melinda) and David Menlove. He graduated from Payson High School in 2008. Tadd entered the University of Utah Honors Program in 2008 and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Business in 2012. Tadd was currently employed as an associate operations specialist with Goldman Sachs office in Salt Lake City.

Tadd lived a rich life full of achievements and fun. His laugh was infectious and lit up the room. He had an endless capacity in his heart and soul for friends and family. His positive energy was contagious; people followed him from one fun adventure to another. He loved anything outdoors-BBQs, golf, baseball, hunting, camping, and motor bikes. He recently took up hockey to the surprise of his parents who didn’t know he could skate. He loved his work at Goldman Sachs, including a 5-month assignment in India. His love of music of all kinds was another connection to friends and family. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Our hearts are heavy and you will truly be missed Taddy.

Tadd is survived by his adoring family: parents, David and Mindi of Salem; his sisters Lauren and Olivia; his grandparents, Verlyn and Gary Jensen, and Robert and Lois Menlove, of Spring Lake.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Johnny Naccarato.

He leaves behind many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends. Tadd had a special place for fun and games with all his young cousins.

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the LDS church, 160 South 460 West in Salem, Utah.  A visitation will also be held Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. at the Walker Mortuary, 587 South 100 West, Payson, Utah, and on Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 9:45 til 10:45 a.m. prior to services.

    I’m incredibly sorry for your loss. I was first on the scene of Tadd’s motorcycle accident. I stayed by his side until emergency medical services arrived. There were several other people who pulled over and tried to help Tadd. We were all hoping he would pull through. I didn’t know Tadd, but I just wanted you to know that there were people there immediately to try and help him.

    Farewell Tadd. It was great getting to know you but also heartbreaking that things did not work out between you and Rachel. Getting you know you was great and seeing how much Rachel loved you made Ami and I feel like you were our brother. It was awesome to have you in Hawaii with us twice and hoped and hoped that you and Rachel would one day tie the knot. Love you brother and we shall see you in the next life for sure and shoot some pigs or turkeys together again.

    I just saw Tadds obituary in the paper. I taught Tadd in first grade at Taylor Elementary School.I often wonder about the students I taught and what type of person they have become. From reading his obituary and knowing him as a young boy, it does not surprise me that he was a well rounded, smart, go getter young man. He was such a fun kid to teach. He was smart and funny. He was friends with everyone. He may not remember me being his teacher but he sure left an unforgettable impression on me. What a great kid I was able for a short year call my student. I am sure he will be deeply missed by many. God bless. Miss Williams (Stacy Forsgren)

    The things we spoke on last Friday, I still can’t believe that was our last conversation. You have left beautiful memories in my heart Tadd. You were always kind and extremely helpful. You were ready to take up any amount of work from me so that I could spend time with my twin boys. That is something very special about you Tadd. Not many will have the heart to understand a working mother’s emotions. You have always ringed me up when you saw me working in the late hours. I miss you my beautiful friend, may your soul rest in peace.

    Too many memories. The Oberoi Hotel “pool party” kicking off with your cannonball (Rachel was very happy with you after that one). The great early morning Tuk Tuk race that I won, hereby known as Tour de ‘Lore. House Boating wherever it was that we went House Boating. I’m grateful for your company during those months. Rest in power, my friend.

    I only knew Tadd for about a week. I’m a new intern on his team at Goldman Sachs but from the first day he made me feel like part of the team. I admired his passion for life, and always looked forward to going to lunch because he always had amazing suggestions. He was always smiling, and he was easily my favorite member of the team. After his death I realized that he is cousins with my girlfriends good friend, Angela Menlove. It was very comforting to be able to spend time with her and Travis and talk about the great memories that they had of Tadd. I wish I could have spent more time with him, but even that short week has inspired me to live life to the fullest and to treat others like he did.

    Tadd was a student in my 6th grade class. He was a good student and very well mannered. I remember he brought me a sweat shirt with a snowman on it for Christmas. It has been many years, but I can still picture his neat handwriting. I am so very sorry his life was cut short by this accident. My sincerest sympathies to his family.

  13. Kelly Regan
