1909-2002 <! >

Our beloved husband, father, and grandpa passed away on Tuesday, January 1, 2002 at the East Lake Care Center in Provo, Utah, surrounded by his family.

He was born to Encarnacion Espinoza and Carmen Cordova Salinas, in Iquique, Tarapaca, Chile on August 29, 1909.

In 1931, he married Berta Araya Conteras, who preceded him in death on December 8, 1942. They had one daughter, Nelly Espinoza, who currently lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

He remarried on December 24, 1943, to Eliana E. Ramirez, and they have two children, Luis Vicente Espinoza and Cecilia E. Marston.

We will greatly miss his zest for life, as well as his violin and guitar practices.

He loved music and writing.

He was an avid reader and gardener, and for many years he worked in the machine shop he constructed in his backyard.

The family expresses gratitude to the doctors of the Central Utah Medical Clinic and the nurses and doctors at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and the East Lake Care Center.

He is survived by his wife Eliana E. Espinoza; children: Nelly Espinoza,

Luis V. (Cleria A.) Espinoza,

Cecilia E. (Glenn) Marston; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter.
