“Gone Fishin’, See Ya Later”

Johnny Carl Leoncini, passed away peacefully on November 15, 2017 surrounded by his loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Murray, Utah on August 20, 1939 to Giovanni and Aurelia Leoncini. He married the love of his life Judy Fae Green on May 17, 1959 in Elko, Nevada. Together they have five wonderful children and built a lifetime of memories. He worked tirelessly all his life to make sure his family were taken care of and loved. He became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on August 27, 2017.

In his younger years he played and taught the accordion. Throughout his life his valiant trades included farming, masonry, delivering Royal Crown Cola, vehicle mechanics, and operating gas stations. He spent 31 years as a lineman for Utah Power and Light, Wasatch Electric, LE Meyers, and Sturgeon Electric. He retired from Utah Power and Light in 1997. After retirement Johnny and Judy traveled the country for the next twenty years. He loved the outdoors, boating, waterskiing, and was an avid fisherman. He was also a passionate bowler and an angry golfer. His laughter would fill a room, his whistle would carry for all to hear, and his love was endless for his family, friends, and those who he served throughout his lifetime.

He is survived by his loving wife Judy, sister Alta Leoncini Potter, children Steven (Tona), Teresa (David) Holmes, Carl (Becky), Angie (Craig) Christison, and Karla (Jeff) White. He is also survived by 25 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren, many other family members, and endless dear friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, two brothers Geno and Ernesto, one sister Lillian, and one grandson Aaron.

The family wishes to give a special thank you to the medical staff throughout his journey and especially CNS Hospice Services (JJ).

A viewing for all that loved him will be Monday, November 20, 2017 at Jenkins Soffe South Valley Mortuary, 1007 West South Jordan Parkway (10600 South), between the hours 6:00 and 8:00 pm.
