Leon Sefora Uribe was born on 03/30/1928 in Mexico City, Mexico to Luciano Segura Medina and Enriqueta Uribe Jasso. He passed away peacefully in Salt Lake City, Utah on 03/29/2023.

He was in the Army and served in the Korean War. He retired from Union Pacific Railroad. He was a hard worker with a strong work ethic. He was nicknamed ‘Killer’ because he would outpace young new workers on the rails until they were ‘dead tired’.

Leon loved spending time with his family and grandchildren. For many years he purchased yearly tickets to the circus for his grandchildren. He was a man of few words but when he did speak it was either incredibly dry humored jokes or profoundly wise advice. He taught us all from a young age to mind the company we keep and keep track of our money. His serious disposition was easily melted by the presence of his grandchildren and his bulldog Lola with whom he gave many treats. His dedication to his family demonstrated how he cared for us, no need was too small or great.

He is survived by his children: Renae Uribe-Castillo (Jaime), Alex Uribe, Gina Boren (Terry), daughter-in law Tillie W. Uribe; grandchildren: Martha Castillo, Analisa Uribe, Miranda Uribe, Emma Uribe, Eva Uribe, Amelie Castillo, Brady Boren, and many siblings, nieces and nephews.

Proceeded in death by his parents, his wife Maria, and his youngest son Jose L. Uribe.

We will miss him greatly.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday April 22, 2023, from 1:00 to 3:30p.m. at 8151 S Red Cloud Way, West Jordan UT 84081.

His final resting place will be at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

Dear Tillie and girls,

When I saw this name I knew right away that you had a loss of your father-in-law and grandfather. He was born the same year as my father. I think of you often and pray for you at this difficult time. Love, Janae
