March 9, 1956 — November 2, 2021

Leon K Rucker, 65, passed away at his Ogden home. He was born in Tremonton, UT to Vera (Kupfer) and Max Rucker. He was one of four children (Mona, Rodger, Randy). He gained a second life long family in the Brandleys. He served an LDS mission to Anaheim, CA, married Lori Phillips and were blessed with four children (PaTricia, David, Amy, Andrew).

They divorced, but remained friends. He later met his companion of 13+ years, Laureen Cower and her loving family. Leon will be remembered for his squinty smile, cracking jokes, his genuine chuckle, expertise in carpentry and his amusing stubbornness. He is survived by his twin brother Rodger, ex-wife Lori, his four children and three grandchildren.
