Please help make possible a Memorial Plaque to be placed at Bridal Veil Falls. It will honor the memory of My Son Sean Thayne, Brenda Dedios, and her Daughter 4 year old London Razo who all three tragically Drowned on Memorial Day 2017.

My beloved Son Sean Thayne was recently honored with The National Carnagie Hero Award for his heroic attempt to save them. He did not know them he only knew that a mother and daughter who was in danger needed his help.

I believe Brenda Dedios and Benni Razo London's parents Deseerve great respect and recognition for they both Jumped into a raging, freezing cold river in an attempt to save their beautiful daughter.

My family has purchased a very large 3-D Printer to create a lithophane with their photographs and names along with some safety tips for people visiting beautiful Bridal Veil Falls Utah that will surely save lives.

You can help us with or without donating by sharing this with others. I'm also in need of someone familiar with 3-D Printing or if you know of someone who is please share this with them.
I will pay or preferably let them or you use the printer and filament in exchange for your valuable time.

Help us make a difference by acting upon my request and thank you in advance.

Troy Thayne

Utahn Sean Z. Thayne who died trying to save drowning mom, child named Carnegie hero

PITTSBURGH — A Sandy man who jumped into the fast-moving and cold Provo River in an attempt to save a woman and her daughter in 2017 is one of 16 people being honored with Carnegie medals for heroism.

The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission, based in Pittsburgh, announced the winners on Thursday.

Sean Thayne died on May 29, 2017, trying to save a 4-year-old girl and her mother from drowning after they were swept downstream in the Provo River.

Brenda Nalleli DeDios, 34, of West Jordan, had been sitting with her two daughters on the rocks at the end of a footbridge along the bank of the Provo River near Bridal Veil Falls. London DeDios either slipped or stumbled into the river while on the rocks, officials reported.

The mother immediately jumped in after her daughter. Five bystanders, all males who saw what had happened, also jumped into the river, including Thayne.

Four of the adults got out of the water about 150 yards downriver, where Thayne and DeDios were last seen. They were pulled out of the water by Search and Rescue about 3 miles downstream near the Murdock Diversion Dam. Both were unconscious or not breathing at that point and pronounced dead a short time later. The girl's body was recovered a day later.

I have purchased a 3D printer and working on Lithophane Design.

3D printing is not as simple as printing paper. I'm spending hours learning how to create a 3D lithophane Memorial Plaque. I will persivear for the sake of creating not only a memorial but a warning Sign to prevent other needless drownings.

I myself know that a picture of people with a story makes a difference rather than just a warning sign.

Thank you all for your support in this endever.

Troy Thayne and Family.

Thank you Jed Boal for listening to my request and being of public service by announcing.
Reach, Riw, Throw Don't Go
