He was born December 25, 1939 in Manila, Philippines to Loreto and Aurea Tiongson.
He was an accomplished singer and musician who entertained the U.S. military troops during the Vietnam War, which is also when he met his wife, Lori Keyser, in Taiwan. They were married Oct. 22, 1975.
Leo worked for the Uintah Basin Applied Technology College for 35 years as a custodian and bus driver. He was also a founding member of the local band Steamboat and entertained people in the Basin for many years. He enjoyed making new friends and had a remarkable memory for names and faces.
Leo's family was the most important thing in his life and he was immensely proud of his children and everything they have accomplished in their lives. His greatest joy in recent years was spending time with his grandchildren.
He was a diehard Utah Jazz, Dallas Cowboy and Arizona Diamondback fan and almost never missed watching a game even traveling to Arizona in order to watch the D-Backs with his children.
Leo is survived by his wife of 41 years, Lori, Roosevelt; children, Ritchie (Maryem), Buckeye Arizona; Robert (Norma), Tolleson, Arizona; and Rhia (Jake) Brosnan, Ballard. Grandchildren Ana, Bella, Sophia and Gabriel.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother.
Leo is being cremated so no services will be held.
