Leon Dennis Carlson

Leon Dennis Carlson passed away peacefully on February 3, 2022. He was born in Everett, Washington to Lawrence Dale Carlson and Marjorie Geraldine Keele Carlson. He was the fourth of six children. He graduated from Jordan High School in Sandy, Utah, in 1962. That same year, he met Victoria Ann Swenson. They were married February 12, 1965 and sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They had six children. He was converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1963.  As a member of the church he held many church callings and served four missions for the church, alongside his wife, Vicki.

Leon has 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.  He loved spending time with his family, hunting, camping, fishing, gardening, watching and listening to sports (especially BYU on his little radio). He loved animals, and they loved him. He was known to be a hard worker, including working in many different positions such as at a mink farm, Hercules, Layton Construction, Frito Lay, Staker Paving, Big D, and other jobs. He worked hard to support his family and was always dedicated to doing his best.

Leon was a lifelong member of the Boy Scouts of America and earned the Wood Badge Beads and Silver Buffalo. He was a friend to everyone and could easily talk with anyone. He will be remembered for his willingness to help anyone whenever needed, his kindness, and his patience.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his son, Neil Leon Carlson, and his siblings Laura Baer and Larry Carlson.  He is survived by his wife Vicki, his siblings Barbara, Leland (Judy) and Leslie (Karen), his step siblings Joseph (Kelley) and Debbie Hurley (Leroy), and his children Jodi Campbell, Jackie Wakefield (Steve), Dennis Carlson (Saunja), Stacey Stanley (James), and Steven Carlson (Emily), and all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
