Leland Dee Dalebout (Slice)

April 24, 1936 - February 26, 2017

Our dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Lee, passed away peacefully on February 26th, 2017 after complications associated with lung cancer.  The love of his life, Diena, was by his side as she has been for over 53 years.

Lee was born in Ogden on April 24, 1936 to Adrian and Vera Dalebout.  He was the youngest of three boys (Harold, Martin, Lee).

Dad graduated from Ogden High School in 1954 where he excelled in many sports including football, baseball, basketball, track, boxing, and wrestling.  He was awarded a football scholarship to Weber Junior College and Utah State.  He selected Weber College so he could be closer to his parents because of their health issues.   His college career was cut short by a shoulder injury.

Lee went to work for Hill Air Force Base where he served loyally for over 32 years.  He also joined the Utah National Guard where he served for nine years.

After his retirement from Hill AFB, he worked at the Barn Golf Course for over 20 years.  This was a natural fit for someone who loved being outside and hitting the long ball.  We ran out of room to store all the trophies he accumulated.

Dad and mom were married in January of 1964, and later sealed in the Bountiful LDS Temple.  They stayed by each other’s side through thick and thin for over 53 years.  Mom and dad were blessed with two children, Cindy Wiggins (Kent) and Scott Dalebout (Gloria), five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.  Dad was so very proud of all their many accomplishments.

He was preceded in death by his father (Adrian), mother (Vera), and his brothers Harold and Martin.

Lee absolutely loved the outdoors and passed on this love to his family.  He could be found in the mountains whenever a hunt was open or the fish were biting.

During the winter months, dad could be found at the bowling alley.  He loved the sport and once scored a 297 at 75 years of age.

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the caregivers who helped so much.  We would like to especially thank Dr. Steinfeldt for his compassion and support for mom through this difficult journey.

A viewing has been scheduled on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the North Ogden 16th Ward, 205 East Elberta Drive.  Funeral services will be held at the same location on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at 11:00 am with a viewing preceding from 9:45 am – 10:45 am.

Arrangements under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

Interment will be at Aultorest Memorial Park where military honors will be accorded.

Diena, I have many fond memories of Slice and you from good old Data Services where we all worked. We also played together and are really like family. I treasure my friendship with Slice and will hold the memories dear. Thank you for being such a good wife and companion to him. Lois and I married in June of 1965, a second marriage for both of us. We still love each other deeply and completely as I'm sure you and Slice do. Our Prayers are with you both. Love, Ron and Lois Price

I bowled with Lee at Ben Lomond Lanes. He was a great guy. Had a big smile. I remember his '297' game. I was cheering him on! We had fun! He'll be missed at the lanes! Your friend, Randy LaRose

It is a sad day for me to hear the passing of Lee. He has always been a very special person to me I can still remember how great he was in sports when we were both together at Ogden High School. When I had to go to Ben Lomond, he was a terror to go up against. I will miss him. Art Bramwell

"Please accept my condolence at your loss of Mr. Dalebout, this must be a difficult time for you all. I pray you are comforted by our Heavenly Father's Word, which gives Hope and strength at times such as you are facing. I pray the promise at Isaiah 33:14 will bring you a measure of comfort where it says, 'no resident will say I'm sick. May the peace of God be with you all"

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Lee Dalebout. What an incredible and valiant man! He always brought joy and happiness with him where ever he went. The mood in any room would always be lifted when he entered. He will be deeply missed. My life has been blessed by knowing Lee and Diena. I hope that you will take solace in knowing that even though he will not be around physically, he will continue to watch over your family in the days, months and years to come, until you can all be reunited once again. Don Miller

So sorry to hear of Slice's passing. He was one of my very best friends ever since we worked together at Hill Field back in the 50's and 60's.
