Leon left Wyoming to enlist in the U.S. Navy and honorably served in Japan from 1955 through 1958.
Leon met and later convinced Beverly "Ann"^ Watson to marry him on July 20, 1962, in the Logan Temple. They began their life together in Brigham City where they raised their family.
Leon grew up a true Outdoorsman and enjoyed camping, hunting, and his greatest obsession fishing, and he shared these hobbies with his children and grandchildren.
Leon was a member of the Operating Engineers Union and worked as an equipment operator/foreman for Fife Rock, Gibbons & Reed, and retired from Granite Construction. After his retirement he filled his days by restoring classic Chevy's and acquired a new fondness for reading, watching classic westerns and artistic welding. His creations can be seen throughout his neighborhood.
Leon was honest and hardworking and was there whenever he was needed. Although bullheaded and cantankerous at times, he had a great sense of humor and was known to be a bit of a tease.
