Chase Boston Wayne Prescott

March 28, 1991 - September 29, 2021

“If you are reading this, know that I lived my life to the fullest.  I love my family and friends.  My only regret is that I left you all behind.” 

Chase was born of March 28, 1991, and passed tragically the early morning of September 29, 2021, at the age of thirty.  

Chase was an accomplished Eagle Scout.  He graduated from Viewmont High School in 2008.  After high school, he valiantly served and protected our Country as an E-4 Specialist in the U.S. Army, 101st Airborne Division, No Slack Battalion.  Serving from 2008 until 2012, where he survived an extremely difficult tour in Afghanistan that caused traumatizing and haunting effects that he personally battled until his last day. 

After serving, Chase graduated from Ameritech College of Healthcare with an Applied Science Degree in Nursing in 2014.  He was proud of his accomplishments and loved serving our Country and community.  Shortly after graduating, Chase joined St. Mark’s Hospital where he worked as a Charge Nurse in the Emergency Department.  He was an amazing Charge Nurse and quickly moved up to Clinical Supervisor.  He gave his heart and soul to all his patients and coworkers.  

More than outgoing, Chase was all-embracing — a bear-hugging, larger-than-life man of action that lived his life to the fullest exemplifying the motto he lived by, “You Only Live Once #YOLO!” He loved wrestling, motorbikes, and tattoos, the crazier or funnier the better. In his downtime, he was a gardener, chef, proud cat dad of Kitty and Lucy, and was always the life of the party.  

Family and his Princess Rebecca were EVERYTHING to Chase. His charm, funny wit, and kind soul will be sorely missed by every person that came into his path.       

Chase is survived by his loving parents, Jerry and Kim, his sisters, Heather and Andrea, his niece, Maddy, and nephew, Luke, his loving soulmate and soon to be wife, Rebecca, his grandfather, Papa John, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.  

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please donate to the Humane Society of Utah, or any local animal shelter in Chase’s name or honor.
