Victor "Hector" Cordona Cintron has gone from our arms to the arms of Jesus on February 23, 2022 at the age of 93. He passed away in the comfort of his home. Hector lived a full and adventuresome life.
Hector was born in Las Marias, Puerto Rico on December 12, 1928 to Jose Segundo and Inez E. Cintron. He joined the National Guard during the Korean War and was classified as a "Sharp Shooter." He came to Utah in 1949 to work at Kennecott Copper Mine where he worked for 30 years. He was a union man and fought for worker's rights.
Hector was a person of integrity, a man's man. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family and was extremely generous to help out others who were in need.
He married Carmen Cintron in 1975 and settled in Riverton for 47 years.
Hector loved the Lord with all his being and was passionate about reading his Bible every day. His favorite pastimes were boxing, hunting, fishing, riding motorcycles, farming, and raising animals.
He served on a mission to the garbage dumps of Mexico City with Operation Serve to Minister to the families there. He enjoyed volunteering in church functions.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years Carmen Cintron, and his children: seven sons, three daughters, numerous grand, great and great great grandchildren. Preceded in death by parents, nine brothers, four sisters, and two sons.
Hector is also the sole survivor of the many Puerto Ricans who came to Utah in the late 40's and early 50's to work in the Kennecott Copper Mine.
