Leo married Maxima when he was twenty one years old and had five children.

Leo finished his education through high school, and started working in the mining company in Baguio, Philippines. He worked for the mining company for twenty years. After moving back to Binmaley he managed a bus transportation until he moved to San Diego, California in 1981. Upon his arrival he worked immediately, five days a week, and on weekends Leo and Maxi enjoyed dancing with their friends and other senior citizens. In 1985 Leo started working for Activewear, Inc., as a shipping and receiving supervisor. He continued working there until his retirement at the age of 65 years old.

Once retired, Leo and Maxi continued dancing every weekend, fishing and bowling during the week, watching his favorite TV game show Wheel of Fortune, and travelling to the Philippines every two years. He loved food shopping at Seafood City and Vinh Dong, getting seafood and live tilapia. His favorite dish was Sinigang Tilapia.

Leo is survived by his wife Maxima, five children, seventeen grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren. He was loved greatly, and will be missed greatly.
