Kenneth Leaver Tingey, Sr.
Dec. 16, 1925 ~ Dec. 7, 2012
Kenneth Leaver Tingey, Sr. passed away peacefully at his home on December 7, 2012 after a grueling fight with post-polio syndrome. He was born on December 16, 1925 to Stanley James Tingey and Eva Leaver in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ken was diagnosed with polio at the age of 14. After his recovery he worked tirelessly to achieve his Eagle Scout Award, but was denied in the end because he was unable to complete his Life Saving Badge. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend. He worked for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 32 years, and established his own accounting business. In the last few years of his life he needed constant care until he passed away.
He was preceded in death by his wife Margie, his infant sons David and John, a granddaughter and a great granddaughter.
Ken is survived by his sons Kenneth, Jr. (Candice), James (Anna), daughters Rebecca, Eva Millie (Ray), Jenny (Bill), Cynthia (Stan), and his sister Marilyn.
Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 12:30 pm in the Hillcrest 6th Ward Chapel, 1200 East 8600 South in Sandy, Utah. Viewings will be held on Monday night from 6-8 pm at the Larkin Sunset Gardens Mortuary, 1950 East 10600 South Sandy, Utah and also from 11-12 prior to the services at the ward.
The family would like to thank Haven Home Health and Hospice for all their excellent care of Ken.
