Tom Nibley

My friend Tom Nibley has died. He was 70 years old. The son of Hugh Nibley, his was the most memorable and provocative talk at his father’s funeral. I thought it took some nerve to deliver his remarks in the presence of Dallin Oaks, Jeffrey Holland, and Merrill Bateman. In that he was much like his father.

The last time we ate lunch together he was ill and commented that he did not think he would ever return to Utah again in this life. He could be stubborn, and I wonder now if he died to prove himself right. He was a bright, witty, insightful and kindly man who will be missed.
