COLUMBIA BASIN HERALD, MOSES LAKE.
In loving memory of Eleazar De Leon, October 19, 1938 -- July 31, 2005.
Eleazar De Leon was born to Cleotilde and Amelia De Leon in Congregacion Hidalgo Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He was known as "Charro" to all his family and friends.
Charro lived his life as he wanted. He was known to be a jokester, an adventurer, a singer, a loving father and brother and he was a man of great "Mexican" strength and dignity.
At the age of 29, he married Maria Barrientes and out of their union they were blessed with six loving children, who then blessed both of them again with eleven grandchildren.
Charro leaves all of us with many great memories of his lifetime. Charro lives on in our hearts and minds for right now, but for those who have Christ in their hearts, they will have the chance to see him once again in heaven.
Charro is survived by his children: Maria Amelia, Evangelina, Eleazar Alonso, Victor, Angelica and Anna Elizabeth. He is also survived by six brothers, three sisters, eleven grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Cleotilde and Amelia De Leon, one brother, Alonso De Leon and one brother-in-law, Jack Powell.
There will be a memorial service Saturday at 2 p.m. at El Sendero de la Cruz Church, 2227 W. Peninsula Dr. Rev. Mike Alvarado, Jr. will be officiating the service. All who knew Charro are invited to come and celebrate the life of our dear brother, uncle and friend.
