Jesse Leos Sr., age 85, of Victorville, California passed away on Sunday December 2, 2018. Jesse was born January 1, 1933 in Del Rio, Texas. Jesse grew up in Texas and came to California in the mid 1960’s. He is survived by his lovely wife of 50 years, 2 sons, 5 daughters, 1 brother, 2 step-sons, 20 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandson who made the 5th generation. He was a professional mechanic most of his life. He owned Leos Automotive Services for many years, and worked for the City of Norwalk. He loved electronics, building, fixing things, and helped build a radio station in Sheffield, Texas. He learned early in his life that he was uniquely special in his own way. His passions included his family, traveling to the mountains, and music. You could always count on an ice cold glass of Sangria, good music playing, a warm welcome while he sat in his lazy boy chair, waiting for the phone to ring . He was a true romantic, a passionate fighter, and was always ‘the Boss.’

God bless you loving Husband, Daddy, Brother, Grampy and Friend!!!

You will be greatly missed, but never forgotten, you are home now...

Until we meet again- “Golla Beniga” ♥️

I’d like to offer my condolences for the loss of a special man I had the honor of meeting on a trip with Elizabeth and Sophie. May he dance in the heavens with all the angels as he looks down on his family. God bless, Teresa White

Dear Grampy,
Knowing you’re not here anymore breaks my heart. But knowing you’re in a much better place makes me feel better. I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Nothing in this world could ever replace the bond we shared. I miss you so much and you will always be in my heart. I love you Grampy..

Dear Grampy,
I love when I always get to go to your house and ride my bike. You have always been very nice to me. I learned to ride my bike there and I will always miss you.

This truly was your "ultima parranda" (final party) dad- thanks for the memories. I will always shed a happy tear when I listen to your songs and cherish the Tex-Mex CD you gave to me many years ago. I loved having drinks with you and listening to your songs and your stories- some of the finest moments of my life for sure. XOXO

Dear Dad,

I never told you this but my love of the open road and taking road trips is truly because of you. As a kid/teen you always let me unfold the maps and annoyingly call out all the mile markers along the highway. Every single trip. Looking back I can see that some of my most memorable times with you were while we spent time in a vehicle- how fitting!

I remember a time about 15 or more years ago when mom was in Mexico and I picked you up from Kaiser after you had an outpatient procedure. You were heavily medicated and sleepy so I took advantage of the situation by blasting my new Limp Bizkit cd - which was super explicit for your taste. You were unknowingly bobbing your head to the music and I was laughing so hard but trying to not let you notice while climbing up the Cajon Pass :) I still laugh out loud when I think about it !! Another time you had me drive you in your beloved S10 to your friend's house across town and I'll never forget our talk throughout the ride- you told me that while I wasn't the best driver (lol) I had other attributes that made me beautiful and you went into some detail. I thought WOW- Dad you're so good for my ego! While you had complimentary words for me at that moment you also never minced words. You said what you said and that was it.

Every time Genesis and I and the kids came to see you and Mom you would love to sit in the passenger seat and be chauffeured around town, offering every one of us gum or mints before takeoff. You know I now can't be without gum or mints in my car? Little Genesis says I'm just like you in that way. If a song came out on the radio that you particularly liked- and there were many- you would look towards the back of the van and say "Oye Celi- you hear that? That's a goodun right there" - we knew what you were really saying was "Turn it up!"

So many things that you put your one and only signature on in my life dad. I will never let your memory fade in me or my kids. Love you dad.

Grampy, I'm so happy I was able to fulfill your wish of having your Leos 5th generation in the newspaper. Your exact words were "I thank God for letting me live long enough to see my 5th generation" that day it was published Aug 23, 2017 you said that was your happiest day ever and that you felt like a movie star 💕

Oh Grampy, you don't know how much I miss you. I just know that Good byes are not forever, Good byes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you till we meet again💕 I love you so much Grampy!! You may be out of my sight, but you will NEVER be out of my mind. I will FOREVER cherish all our memories together. Your the Best Grampy! Love Always your Oldest granddaughter, your attorney, your Cheenchee, Cindy

Every time I visit I’m always reminded of the time when I would play in his back yard. My brother pushed me into the “pit” and I’d cry. But somehow I’d always be able to remember his big hands to pull me out saying “pobrecito” and wipe my tears away. I don’t have very many memories of him, but the ones I do have are full of love and care.
