On May 14, 1966, Leo was born to Leo Alfred Gonzales Sr. and Connie Reyer Gonzales in Roswell, New Mexico. Leo was passionate about the outdoors. He would get in his car and just drive, not knowing where the destination may lead him. A Dallas Cowboy fan, Leo enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, watching street outlaws and most of all, watching his favorite team play. Working on small engines was one of Leo’s favorite things to do. His greatest joy in life was spending time and making memories with his grandchildren. Leo was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed, not only by his family and friends, but by all those fortunate enough to have known him.
