Lito was a gentle guy and amazing guitarist. I had the pleasure of recording and performing with him for several years. He made playing lead and slide guitar seem so fluid and easy. Though he was quiet and reserved, that never showed in his playing. His guitar solos were complex and lively, and he could play anything from punk to jazz. Lito also had a unique and off-beat sense of humor which could catch you off guard, and he was a very loyal friend who felt things very deeply. I was devastated to learn of his passing. I will treasure the memories of playing together and getting to know him.

Much love to B., Rose, and the rest of the DeLeon family.
