Elmer (Sugar) Claude Candelario (65)
Our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Brother, and Friend returned home to our heavenly father on January 3rd, 2021 with his sweetheart by his side. He was born on October 13, 1955 in Tooele, Utah to Jose and Corrina Candelario where he resided his entire life. He retired as a civil servant from Tooele Army Depot after proudly serving for more than 31 years.
He was a dedicated & loving father, devoted husband and a man of faith. His family came first and foremost. He loved riding his Harley, hunting, fishing, camping, and finding any excuse to be outdoors especially with his grandchildren. He was well liked and well known everywhere he went. His presence was one of a kind and he knew how to leave a lasting impression. He will be deeply missed by so many.
He married his sweetheart Sandra J. Candelario on May 25, 1991 and would have celebrated 36 wonderful years together. They never were too far from each other. As he always said he loved kicking it with his old lady. Together they had 6 children Emily (Joshua) Chandler, Melissa Candelario,
Jesse Candelario (Emily), Jeremy (Josie) Candelario, Elmer (Nikki) Candelario, and Miranda Azbill. 20 grandchildren, Emya, Anthony, Izziahs, Brooks, Andre, Valencina, Marcellas, Elias, Ezeriah, Alyssa (Jonathan), Alexis, Whitney, Corrina, Raquel, Romi, Victor, Vienxa, Annaliesse, and Bobbie. 2 great-grandchildren Oliver, and Antonio.
He was preceded in death by his parents Jose and Corrina Candelario, his brothers Herman and Andrew Candelario, and his grand-daughter Mercedes Candelario.
Due to current circumstances a private viewing will be held for immediate family members only. Mass will be open to those who wish to attend
at St. Marguerite's Catholic Church on Thursday January 7, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. followed by a burial at Tooele City Cemetery.
