Jose Santos De Leon, Jr., age 73, peacefully joined his Lord and Savior on November 25, 2023, surrounded by the warmth and love of his devoted wife, Norma De Leon, and his children: Natica Yi (Tommy Yi), Jose Santos De Leon III (Jamie Lynn De Leon), and Ashley De Leon, along with his grandchildren. Born to the late Santos and Alicia De Leon, founders of De Leon Funeral Home in Pharr, Texas, Jose, affectionately known as "Tito" by those closest to him, was more than a name; he was a beacon of God's love, kindness, and generosity.
Tito dedicated his life to serving the Lord and others. His commitment to faith was exemplified through his prison ministry, where he brought hope and spiritual guidance to those who needed it most. Tito's musical talents, expressed through playing the guitar, violin, bass guitar, and keyboard, enriched the lives of those around him. His worship-filled melodies resonated not only in our ears but in our hearts.
Beyond the borders of Pharr, Tito extended his compassion to the less fortunate in Reynosa, Mexico, where he played a pivotal role in a Christian Outreach Ministry. Tito's heart for service was further evident in his role as the founder of a statewide ambulance service. Despite his professional success, he remained humble, utilizing the service's funds to support various initiatives for the greater glory of God.
A creative and strategic thinker, Tito approached life with a sense of excitement and fun. His caring and genuine nature touched the lives of many. As a godly and loving father, grandfather, and husband, Tito's legacy is one of love, generosity, and unwavering faith in the goodness of God.
