Ruben “Don Kokis” Leon
Apr. 5, 2018
Ruben “Don Kokis” Leon, 71, of Moroni, passed away March 29, 2018 at his home in Moroni.
He was born Nov. 5, 1946 in La Cinta, Michoacan, Mexico to Adolfo and Adelida Leon Lopez.
Ruben grew up in La Cinta, Michoacán and then moved at age 15 to Mexico City to start working. Eventually he moved to the United States as a young adult.
Ruben loved the outside, fixing cars, yard work, gardening and always had a project he was working on with his Diet Coke and his dog Quate by his side. He was the type of person that would wave at you even if he didn’t know you. He would say, “Hi amigo!” Everyone was his friend and his heart was so big he could hold so much love for everyone in it. He was a great man and for everyone that knew him would say the same. He was strong, hard worker, and a great example to many.
Survived by his wife, Concepcion Aguado; children, Juan Carlos; Ulises; Rigoberto; Marina; Ana Maria; Rosa; Ruben; Kathy and Stephany; siblings, Constantino Leon; Saturnino Leon; Arturo Leon; Artemio Leon; Leonila Leon; Marciana Leon; Eliasar Leon; Aurora Leon and Teresa Leon.
A viewing and a mass was held Monday, April 2, 2018 at 6 p.m. at St. Judes Catholic Church in Ephraim. Online condolence at www.rasmussenmortuary.com.
