Leroy John Stoddart

d. May 19, 2018

LeRoy John Stoddart, 76, of Pocatello, passed away on May 19, 2018 in Pocatello. LeRoy was born in Pocatello, Idaho to John Hulet and Marcella Rademacher on August 2, 1941. LeRoy was later adopted by Caleb "Cleve" Stoddart. He graduated from Pocatello High School and attended Idaho State University. He loved the ladies and even managed to marry a few over the years. He worked as an "oiler" for Simplot for several decades, before retiring to focus on his true love, which was home improvement. He was a military veteran of Vietnam, and Desert Storm. He spent about 40-years in the Military serving in the Navy Reserves. To say LeRoy was easy going and kind would be an understatement. He had a great sense of humor, got along with everyone he met, and seemed to know everyone. Thats especially true of the waitresses at his favorite diners, restaurants and senior centers around town, which he frequented often over the years. LeRoys departure is sure to put a dent in the restaurant industry around town. He was a loving father and took in many stray children (and cats) over the years. LeRoy spent decades working on his beloved house. For better or worse, he did most of the restoration, expansion and construction all by himself. Whether it was mixing cement at midnight or adding yet another extension to the house, he was fond of saying, "when I get done with this, we will have a big bar-b-que." Well dad, after 45-years of construction, I think we can finally have that BBQ. He leaves behind a legacy of hard work, kindness, and a lot of stuff his children have no idea what to do with. LeRoy is preceded in death by his parents, Marcella Stoddart, Cleve Stoddart, John Hulet, and Vera Hulet; brothers, Richard Stoddart, David Stoddart and Gary Hulet; step-brother, Bob Slattery; son, Troy Andrew Stoddart; and granddaughter, Aja Anne Uriona. He is survived by his children, Kathy (Bob) Miles of Blackfoot, Doug Stoddart of Atlanta, Georgia, Hope Stoddart-Lynch-Larsen of Pocatello, and Jason (Emilee) Hayne; brothers and sisters, Carol Tucker, Michael (Michelle) Stoddart, Marian Stoddart, Roger (Candy) Stoddart, Philip (Theresa) Stoddart, Ronald (Yolanda) Stoddart, Donald (ReJean) Stoddart, Kay (Richard) Trussel, Cathy (Kelly) Meyers, Judy Fisher, and Brent (Janet) Hulet; grandchildren, KaMel Hernandez, Cheyenne Hernandez, Sadie Hernandez, Bettie Lu Stoddart, Katie Ralston, Evelyn Stoddart, Kira Stoddart, Melissa Lynch, Trevor Cardona, and Lelainne Horvath; great-grandchildren, Madysen Dooley, Aubree Jones, and Roman Curtis; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
