Leon Paul Broadhead, age 77, passed away peacefully Friday, April 19, 2019 with his loving wife by his side. He was born September 19, 1941 in Payson, Utah to Paul Elmer and Ruby Romero Broadhead. He was the second of three sons.
He met the love of his life, Pauline Morgan, on a blind date and they were married November 28, 1959. They were later sealed in the Manti Temple on May 19, 1963. Together they raised four beautiful children.
Leon attended Juab High School in Nephi, Utah and graduated in 1958.
Leon was a man of many talents. He taught himself to be an electrician by courses through the mail. He was very handy at fixing anything. If he did not know how to fix it he would study it and learn how.
He loved the outdoors and passed that passion on to his children. He loved hunting, fishing, camping, off-roading and many other things that got him out in the hills and mountains.
Throughout his life he had many careers. Some of them included: Union Pacific Railroad, Kennecott Copper in Ruth, Nevada, Union Carbide in Tempiute, Custodian at the Pahranagat Valley Schools and owner of the Meadow Lane Motel in Alamo.
Leon was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as a scout leader, a counselor in the bishopric in Alamo, a ward clerk, financial clerk and a diligent home teacher.
Leon will be deeply missed by his surviving family members including his wife, Pauline; two daughters and two sons: Dawna (Tab) Nielson, Connie (Lonny) Walch, Darren Leon Broadhead, Evan Paul (Tammie) Broadhead; 9 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers.
