Leon E. Davidson

March 09, 1935 - August 06, 2018

Leon E. Davidson, 83, passed away August 6, 2018 in Mesa. As a young veteran, Leon proudly served during the Korean War in both the U.S. Army and Air Force. Later becoming an electronics technician who could fix most everything (except his golf swing) and a dedicated flight instructor, he particularly had a passion for things with speed. From motorcycles to airplanes, he loved only a few things more: his beloved wife of 61 years, Hazel; their children Kevin (Gunilla) Davidson and Allison (Greg) Johnson; and his greatest pride and joy--his granddaughters, Amanda, Audra, Anna, and great-grandson, Koda. Born the middle of three sons in Edgeley, North Dakota on March 9, 1935, Leon is also survived by brothers Dale and Robin. A quiet man of great strength who wielded a steely gaze and a mischievous grin with equal measure, he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Memorial services will be held at 10:30 am on August 10, 2018 at Tempe Mortuary, 405 E. Southern Ave, Tempe. Private Interment at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona to be held at a later date. Memorial gifts may be made to Alzheimer's Association (www.alz.org) or Mesa United Way (www.mesaunitedway.org).
