Leo Amador(1925 - 2014)

Leo Lloyd Amador
1925 ~ 2014
On March 22, 2014 Leo Lloyd Amador happily returned home to his wonderful caring parents. He was born December 1, 1925, the 8th of 9 children in Sunnyside, Utah, Carbon County.
Leo and his brother both left school to serve their country in the military during World War II. His brother served in the Infantry and was killed during the war. Leo served approximately 3 years in the US Navy aboard the USS. Luzon.
Leo, despite his renegade personality was devoted to his parents and his favorite sister Jean. He returned home from the war to work in Columbia, Utah, Carbon County for Columbia Steel in the coke ovens and later for the Columbia and Horse Canyon Coal Mines. Leo then worked for Kennecott in Magna, Utah for many years before retiring.
After his parents passed away he moved to Orem and lived in their home until his death.
He is survived by his two sisters Isabel (Ed) Trujillo of Magna and Millie (Ken) Gren of Orem. Leo enjoyed hearing about his many "rug rat" nieces and nephews, a character, but devoted to his parents and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents Ysidro Amador and Jessie Amador, three infants sisters that he never knew, but will now, his sisters Kay (Doug) McArther, Jeana (Al) Reifschneider and his brother Salvador Amador.
Graveside services will be held Monday March 31, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Orem City Cemetery, 1520 North 800 East, Orem with military rites provided by Amerian Legion District #4.
