Manuel Palacios, age 84 passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family on March 6th 2018 in Sunnyside Utah. He was born on April 19th, 1933 in Sego Utah to Gumicendo and Maria Palacios. He was a member of Good Shepherd Parish and The Knights of Columbus.
He worked at Kaiser Steel Corp. for 36 years, then went on to be an inspector closing abandoned mines for 10 years.
He was an avid outdoorsman, gun enthusiast, and target shooter.
He loved spending time with his family and taking them fishing, camping, and hunting.
Dad enjoyed his grandchildren as they grew up over the years.
Taking long trips to Sego, Skyline drive, or putting hand and footprints of all his grandchildren in his front and back yard.
Dad taught many young men the finer points of reloading and up to his passing was still giving tips on reloading.
His room was his office and those that were part of his hobby knew that the pictures and his grandchildren’s souvenirs were what made that room special.
Finally, dad was a man of faith.
He loved and cherished our mother, his children and grandchildren.
He knew our Lord and Savior and his Catholic faith was paramount in his life.
Daddy we will miss you. We love you.
