David De Leon

April 8, 1958 — November 25, 2022

Corpus Christi


David was a loving husband, father, and grandfather whose story began and ended in Corpus Christi on November 25, 2022. After serving his country as an active duty Marine, he returned and made a home in Corpus Christi where he met the love of his life, Blanca M. Cantu. Together they created a beautiful blended family that included her two children, Jesicka Jacaman and Noe Garcia, Jr., and their son, Santos De Leon. David worked hard in the oil refinery industry which took him to jobs overseas to support his wife and family. Along the way, David met many friends who became family. He had a kind and generous soul and always looked out for his friends and family.
Unfortunately, David's life was cut short when he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in October. Although doctors didn't give him much hope, he fought with the mindset of a Marine and tragically succumbed to his illness on November 25th at the age of 64. He had made his peace with God and we rest assured that he is rejoicing with Him and the Angels in heaven. He will forever be remembered and loved by all who knew him.
