In Memory of

Nolan Dean Fryatt

December 11, 1957 - March 1, 2023


On March 1, 2023, Nolan Dean Fryatt, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by his family. He was born on December 11, 1957 to Minnie Ellen Saylor Fryatt and William Oren Fryatt in Kansas City, Missouri. Nolan grew up in Independence, Missouri, and graduated from Truman High School in 1976. Four years later, he graduated from Central Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Industrial Security. Nolan’s career centered on security and safety over 34 years at Honeywell where he led the patrol division and later the counterintelligence division.

Nolan’s love for sports provided many opportunities for him and his family. Travels almost always involved a visit to a stadium, golf course, or college. His favorite, however, was to visit Augusta National Golf Club for The Masters. Nolan coached his son’s baseball teams and he walked the golf courses during their tournaments in high school. One of his greatest loves was to officiate high school and college football. His purpose was to give back to the students and teach new officials how to grow in their understanding of the game. Nolan officiated high school football for 29 years and college games for 12 years. 

Nolan met his wife Linda in high school and they were married for 41 years. His pride and joy were his sons Marcus and Christopher. He was preceded in death by his parents and two half brothers, Robert Fryatt (Connie) and Gene Fryatt (Darlene). Nolan is survived by his wife Linda, sons Marcus and wife Jamie, Christopher and fiancé Emilie, and grandchildren Clara and Brooks. Nolan’s brother Preston (Sharon) also survives him along with nieces and nephew Wendy, Tracey, and Eric.

Services for Nolan will be held on Monday, March 6, 2023 at Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. and service starting at 11:00.

Linda and boys: I am sorry sorry for your loss. I worked with Nolan for 26 years. We enjoyed working in security together. He had a great sense of humor and a wealth of knowledge of security. I cherished our friendship. I pray for God’s peace and his angels arms to wrap around you all. Nolan will be so missed. Hugs to you all.

Nolan was a long time friend of mine. He Worked Football with me and my Varsity Crew for 15 years!
He had to leave the sport because of health issues, and I knew it was something he hated.
Over the years we played golf and always had a great time together! I am sad to hear of his passing, and I will miss him! My Prayers are with his Family. Steve Rupard

Nolan was one of my dearest friends. Times spent Coaching, Reffing, just talking on the phone about life are some of my dearest memories. He touched the lives of untold multitudes of people, and this world is a much sadder place now that he has left us. I dearly miss you my friend.

Linda and Family,
I am sorry for your loss.
We had many good times in college and stayed in touch over time. He was a good person and I enjoyed talking with him about sports and music. He will be missed by many. I always think of him and Linda when I hear “Gimme Three Steps” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Nolan and I had some great debates, sometimes I’m sure he was just doing it to get me going … Great times in High School, and college and good old Green Crest. I know he will be sorely missed, praying for you and your family. I bet he’s playing golf right now . ♥️

I’m so sorry. My memories of Nolan are of him smiling and making everyone around him laugh. He was wonderful to spend time with. Love to all of you.

My sympathies to the Fryatt family. I worked with Nolan for many years at Honeywell in the Security division and he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

After my military career in the US Air Force, Security Police, I obtained a position with the Honeywell Patrol Division. It was during this time I met Nolan and he was a true professional in every way. Very knowledgeable and talented person, who knew the “business” we were in. He will be missed by many of us.

I and my deceased Husband Scott worked with Nolan for many years. He was such a great professional man and enjoyed talking about his family and high school coaching experience. Prayers to the family during this difficult time.

i’m sorry to hear of his passing. he was a great person, great boss, and great friend.
i always remeber his humor.

Nolan and Linda are our neighbors. We met them while I was walking my dog. They both are dog lovers and I always enjoyed visiting with them. Nolan would come in the driveway while I walked my dog and would visit, he shared donuts, always keeping an eye on the neighborhood making sure everyone was safe. He enjoyed sharing stories about golfing with his buddies and was excited that he got 9 holes in that day. He always had a smile on his face and seemed like nothing in life would get him down. I will miss talking to him! Linda we’re always here whenever you need anything. 🙏 prayers for you and your family.

I was very sad to hear this. Nolan was a good friend & mentor to me in College Football Reffing.

I will miss him very much.

My sincere condolences and prayers to the Fryatt family during this difficult time. I worked with Nolan during my career at Bendix/Allied-Signal KCD/FM&T. He was a professional, good coworker, and friend. He was one of the workers I missed after my 26 years. He was serious but had a humorous side, always with an infectious smile. Rest in Peace my friend.

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Nolan at Honeywell. He had such a great smile. Always friendly. I am sorry I can’t attend his service but am available if you want to talk Linda. Alice Bray 816-665-2919.

I had the highest respect for Nolan, worked high school football with him for over 20 years…….he was a class act and he will be greatly missed.
Peace Be With You and your family

Original. Authentic. Consistent. Family. Faithful. Friend. Just a few of the words that come to mind when I reflect on the life of a truly wonderful person. It is with saddness that we say goodbye for now. It is with smiles of happiness and joy that we remember all the laughs and good times, knowing that a reunion awaits us all. To Linda, the boys, and the extended family, may you find peace and joy in your reflections and remembrances of a man gone too soon. God Bless you all.

Dear Linda,

I am so sorry to hear about Nolan. I had no idea he was battling this. I know you and the boys will be fine and I pray God is watching over your family in the months to come. Please know you have the love and support of all your friends. I am putting you on my prayer list tonight and will pray for you daily. If you need to talk please reach out to me. You have my number. Life is short so make the most of every day. May Nolan’s spirit live on in you, your boys, and your grandchildren.

I have just learned of this so I am sorry I missed his service and visitation. May God’s peace be in your heart today and always.
