Bryce Robert Madsen

February 26, 1937 — August 26, 2017

Bryce Robert Madsen, 80, of Shelley passed away August 25, 2017 at EIRMC in Idaho Falls.

He was born on February 26, 1937 to Leona (Shaw) and Robert Eugene Madsen in Venice, Utah. He was the eldest of four siblings.

He married Karlyn Durrant, March 16, 1956. Later divorced. He then married Gayle Miner on December 12, 1987. They made their home in Shelley, ID where they were residing at the time of his death.

The family moved to Tooele where Bryce grew up and graduated from Tooele High School. He spent his life as a professional body and fender mechanic, painter, and pin stripper. His body work and paint jobs were flawless. He was a master at mixing paint to match any vehicle he was working on. When pin stripping became a fad, he was the best. He was very proud of every vehicle that left his shop. This profession led Bryce and his friends into forming the first Car Club in Tooele called the Kingstons. They met weekly to help each other work on their vehicles and teach each other their professions. Bryce also loved to fish, hunt and square dance.

Bryce is survived by his wife, five children: Cherri Dare, Tooele, UT. Jerri Brown, Tooele, UT. Betty (John) Donnelly, Stansbury, UT, Neil Madsen, Tooele, UT, Karma (Ronald) Rette, New Egypt, NJ, and step son, Corey (Anita) Green, Salt Lake City, UT; siblings: Clive (Stella) Madsen, Fontana, CA, and Shirlene (Howard) Emry, Sandy, UT; nine grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, one great great grandchild and two step grandchildren.
