Moroni George Leafty was born to Leland Ray Leafty and Kathleen Mae Cross in Murray Utah. He married Nancy Hill in 1979. They lived in S.L.C then moved to Magna. He is survived by his wife Nancy, 3 sons, 4 daughters, 16 grandchildren, 2 sisters, and 4 brothers. Moroni was a fitness enthusiast. Any type of fitness he could do he did. He loved running, biking, and swimming. He also loved camping, that was how he connected with his family. He strives for 100 push-up and sit-ups ever morning before he would go on a walk with their dog Coco up to the gravesite where he will now reside. He tracked his bike rides, swimming, and runs each day and recorded the miles on his calendars. He rode his bike and tandem multiple times to the Great Salt Lake. Attempted Bryce Canyon 2 times, once with his nephew and the other with a brother. He made it to Bryce Canyon with his eldest son it took them 5 days to get there. And countless other places. He rode his bike before it was a cool thing to do. He would run from the bottom to the top of cable mountain at Zion National Park and back down again. We even have a picture of him standing on his head at the top of cable mountain. Moroni will be missed, but we are all thankful for the time we had with him. He passed doing what he loved, riding the tandem with his wife. With biking, running, and swimming he’ll show everyone how to have fun.
