OBITUARY

Anthony De Leon Parcon

May 20, 1952January 20, 2021

Tony Parcon (May 20, 1952 - January 20, 2021) Anthony De Leon Parcon was born in Tondo, Manila to parents, Ramon and Paraluman. He grew up in the Philippines as the eldest of 9, with 2 brothers and 6 sisters. Their family was "so rich in everything, except money" as described by his brother Ron. At first, Tony attended San Beda, an exclusive private grade-school, but later transferred to public school where he learned how to be street-smart. From then on, Tony was known as one of the toughest guys in the neighborhood.

Tony immigrated to America in 1978. He returned to the Philippines in 1982 to marry his long-time love, Teresa (aka Tisha), whom he met through their neighbors on Antonio Rivera street in Tondo. The couple had an instant attraction to one another, which flourished to this day. Together, they had three daughters, Toni Rose, Abigail, and Teri Ann. Tony retired working for telephone company, Pacific Bell, but his kids remember the family home of two decades as his true labor of love. There, Tony built whatever he envisioned, including a beautiful pond, aviaries full of birds, a gazebo, and a life-size doll house for the kids.

Tony was active in Filipino Cursillo Movement, stemming all the way back as junior Cursilista in the Philippines. He joined FCIC within the Los Angeles Archdiocese, where he was readily available to help in serving the community, retreat operations, leadership, social activities, and shirt design. He was grateful for the cherished friendships Cursillo brought to him.

It was evident that his love for his five grandchildren Desiree, Dexter, Ace, Charlie, and Eleanor was second to none. He loved showing them magic tricks and he always had a lighter handy, so the kids could blow out birthday candles at any time.

He was loved and adored by so many. He had the ability to light up a room with his charisma and humor. The Parcon family asks that you smile and remember him as the witty, handsome, and strong man he was. May he rest in peace.
