Obituary of Jarrett Paul Nixon
Our hearts are shattered at the passing of our beloved Jarrett Paul Nixon on March 11, 2022. Jarrett lost his life in a single car accident in the mountains he loved. His death leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his mother, Beth Longnaker, father, Daniel Nixon and Stepmother Kate, brother Jerome Nixon, and his dog Moo Shu Gai Pan. Those also deeply saddened include his maternal grandmother, Faye Longnaker, his aunts and uncles Faye Longnaker, Nancy & Mitch Woods, Kaitlyn & Drew Schmidt, Denny Nixon, Shawn & Laura Nixon, in addition to many cousins and friends including four close childhood friends Jake, Jordan, Daniel and Katrina. Jarrett is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Jerry & Barbara Nixon (Papa & Nana) and uncles Kelly Nixon, Ralph Longnaker and Jim Longnaker. We will remember his kind, loving heart, bright smile, quick wit, adventurous and independent spirit, love of hiking, driving, camping, travel, food and scuba diving (to name just a few things), and especially those long lashes he batted to his advantage. He experienced a lot in his short life. Jarrett travelled to 5 countries, 46 states, visited more than a dozen national parks, and swam and enjoyed scuba diving in 2 oceans and 3 seas just to name a few of his adventures. We find comfort knowing that he is with God and those that have gone before him who loved him as much as we do. He loved his family and friends and the family cabin. We will honor his wish to place his remains among the pines he loved in northern Arizona.
