Albert Arthur ValDez Jr.

Albert Arthur ValDez Jr.
7/22/1946 ~ 7/6/2019
Albert Arthur ValDez Jr. passed away July 6, 2019 surrounded by family, in his West Jordan home where he built a beautiful life with his wife, Libbie Vigil ValDez. Albert was 72 years old when he lost his battle with ALS and dementia. He continued to grace us with his amazing smile until the last few days of his life.
Albert was born on July 22, 1946 to Mary Jane and Albert Valdez Sr. He was the youngest of four children; Edith Sutter, Betty Jo Blank, and his best friend and brother Jim (Lorrie) ValDez.

Albert served in the United States Navy in communications and proudly served during the Vietnam War. Albert and Libbie married January 11, 1969 after going out on only a few dates and spent the next 50 years together.

Albert enjoyed the time he spent as a bus driver, although his true passion was as a cartoonist. He often drew caricatures in a matter of minutes, that captured and conveyed a person’s sense of humor or personality. Our hearts and home are filled with his drawings. He had the most infectious laugh and laughed harder at his own jokes than any of us did. Albert was the life of every party and if there was music playing, you could bet that he and Libbie would be dancing.

Albert is survived by his loving wife, Libbie, his three children; Andrea (Kenneth) Park, James (Jenn) ValDez, and Lisa (Patrick) McCleery, his six grandchildren; Carmen, Valencia (Eutimio), Kajsa, Tavia, Jayme, and Trey, and his great-granddaughter, Reyna.

Family and friends may gather at Memorial Redwood Mortuary, 6500 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, UT, 84123, on Thursday, July 11, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. A funeral mass will be held at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church, 7405 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, UT, 84088, on Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM with interment to follow at the West Jordan City Cemetery, 7925 South 1300 West, West Jordan, UT 84088.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the ALS foundation or the VA. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the doctors and nurses at the VA and all the wonderful people at the Caregivers Support Network who cared for Albert and helped to keep him at home with his family..
