Salt Lake Tribune on 9/30/2004. Leon Everett Oliver, 78, passed into his eternal life on September 27, 2004 with congestive heart complications. He passed away at Cottonwood Hospital with his family at his side. Leon, son of Vern Albert Oliver and Lucetta Peggy Jensen, was born in Magna, Utah on May 15, 1926. He spent his early years of school in the same area of his birth. He first married Lillian Greene, and from this union had three daughters. He then married Colleen Farrington on March 14, 1959 in Elko, Nevada, later solemnized at the Salt Lake Temple. This union was blessed with three children. He served in the Navy during World War II. After being released and came home to find no work, he rejoined the Air Force. Leon worked for Kennecott Copper and retired in 1983.
