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.
