We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Alameda Mortuary
Leroy D Crespin, age 74, was called to be with our Lord on April 3, 2022. He was a resident of La Jara, NM where he spent a majority of his life. He also spent time in Magna, UT where he met his wife, Katherine. Together they raised five wonderful children, Stanley, Gary, Nina, Leeann, and Antonio. Leroy was a man of faith and always had a thank you to God for his many blessings which included his love of his wife, children, and grandchildren.
Leroy always lived life to the fullest. He was known to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, whether it be family, friends, or a stranger. He worked 21 years with the Cuba Schools in various positions but retiring as Maintenance Supervisor. He was a mechanic, drove buses, maintained the facilities, trained employees, and used his many talents anywhere they were needed. Upon his retirement in 2009, he then could take advantage of all his free time to do the things he loved the most. He loved being outdoors camping, hunting, fishing and off roading. He was able to spend time with his children, volunteering as a Camp Host with the Forest Service in Jemez and Cuba and travel.
Leroy was preceded in death by his mother, Ignacita Crespin, and his grandpa Antonio Crespin. After their untimely death, when Leroy was very young, his Tia Eugenia Crespin, and many other family members helped raise him.
Leroy is survived by his wife of 53 years, Katherine. Their children Stanley and wife Lynette, Gary, Nina, Leeann Lovato and husband Ray, and Antonio. Eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren also survive him.
Leroy will be laid to rest on April 23, 2022, in La Jara, NM at Santo Nino de Atocha Mission Church. Rosary at 10 am followed by mass at 11 am. Burial to follow. Reception at Guadalupe Hall in Cuba after the services.
