November 2, 1949 - March 11, 2022
Brian Henriksen Noyce (1949-2022) Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on Friday, March 11, 2022. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 2, 1949, to Gladys Henriksen and Monitor C. Noyce, Brian was the third of four children. Raised in Salt Lake City, Brian graduated from Olympus High School before serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ireland (1968-1970). Brian attended Weber State College, the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. Brian served his country as a Medical Corpsman in the United States Army Reserve (1971-1975). On Tuesday, March 13, 1973, Brian married the love of his life, Janice Andrus, and they were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Brian and Janice were blessed with eight children, all of whom have married and have children of their own. Brian is survived by Janice, their children and children’s spouses: Matthew and Amanda Hopkins Noyce, Natalie and Aaron G. Brown, April and Lee Knight, Laurie Ann and Cameron Thor, Abigail and Craig McAllister, Andrew and Amanda Jean Noyce, Elizabeth and David Nuffer, and Nicholas and Amanda Hughes Noyce. Brian and Janice have 29 grandchildren and 1 grandson-in-law, ages two to twenty-two years old, all of whom dearly miss their greatest fan. Brian is also survived by his siblings: Brent Monitor & Judy P. Noyce (deceased), Vicki and Robert T. Barrett, as well as Julie and Gary Michaels. He was preceded in death by his parents, Monitor C. Noyce (July 10, 1970) and Gladys Henriksen Noyce (June 27, 2006). Brian was a disciple of Jesus Christ and a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Brian was a patriarch to his family in every sense of the word. Brian had a quiet and reserved demeanor, which complemented the vast wisdom and knowledge he possessed. Brian believed in God and instilled the values and teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ within his family. Brian diligently served many ward congregations and held many responsibilities in the Church. Brian was a caring neighbor, generous with his time and talent. Most recently, Brian and Janice lovingly served together as Nursery Leaders in their local congregation. Brian had a beautiful voice which paired well with his talent for playing guitar. Together with his lifelong friends, Mark Dangerfield and James Norman, they formed an acoustic folk music group, artfully named “The MJB.” Having toured Europe accompanying the BYU folk dancing team and, later, recording a full-length album, The MJB has brought and continues to bring joy to many. Brian shared his love and enthusiasm for camping and ATV riding with his family, who often helped prepare for last-minute weekend trips. From the Little Sahara sand dunes, American Fork Canyon, the nearby Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons, as well as many other national and state parks, Brian enjoyed spending time with his family outdoors. Many of Brian’s grandchildren were fortunate to enjoy this experience with Grandpa Noyce. Brian was a lifelong follower of BYU athletics, paying particular interest in the football program. Whether at the stadium or in the living room, Brian enjoyed showing his support for the team and wasn’t shy to “lend coaching advice.” As part of his professional career, while working full time for First Security Bank, Brian helped support his family as a licensed general contractor. Brian designed and built several quality custom homes along the Wasatch Front, including their current home. Brian selflessly shared this knowledge and expertise with friends and family attempting to tackle their own do-it-yourself projects. Brian was a skilled woodworker. From his at-home woodshop, Brian crafted many custom pieces, including rocking horses and sleighs for his grandchildren, as well as custom furniture which will adorn homes for generations to come. Brian and Janice loved traveling and spending time with one another. As one of their favorite destinations, Brian and Janice frequented the New England area where they enjoyed wandering the autumn-colored landscape. Brian had a particular taste for fresh-pressed apple cider, apple cider donuts, Maple Cremees (soft-serve from Vermont), root beer and generally all soft-serve ice cream. Brian Henriksen Noyce was a kind, caring man who demonstrated a profound love for his family and for God. Words cannot express how much he will be missed. Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 17, 2022, 12:00 p.m. in the Granite View Ward meetinghouse located at 2675 E. Mt. Jordan Rd. (9700 S.), Sandy, Utah 84092.
