Obituary

Michael Anthony Leon, known to many as Stretch, age 64, of Tucson, Arizona, passed away on December 1, 2020 after a two-week battle with COVID, but also had other medical conditions like stage 4 lung and brain cancer.

Michael, son of Catalina Patino Leon (deceased) and Mike Moreno Leon, was born in San Jose, California, on July 14, 1956. He and his family moved to Tucson in 1966. In 1974, he graduated from Tucson High School where he played basketball, and later went on to play baseball.

Michael worked with his family in his father’s tree service business for several years. From there he ventured into the construction industry where he became a drywaller.

Michael enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, ping pong, chess, dominos and spades. He also competed in the Cactus Bowling tournaments and the Gabe’s Bar Billiard tournaments. Michael was a die-hard Indianapolis Colts fan. He was a person who was the life of the party and always made people laugh.

Michael is survived by his children Melody Leon, Joshua Leon, Krystal Leon, and Sylbil Leon; ten grandchildren; two great grandchildren; his father Mike Leon; his sister and brother-in-law Julie and David Samaniego; numerous nieces and nephews; other family and many friends.

The visitation, funeral service, and burial will be held on December 18, 2020 at Leon Cemetery, Vail, AZ. Visitation from 10 am to 11 am with a Rosary Service beginning at 11 am followed by the funeral service and burial, all taking place on the Leon Cemetery property.

Michael was beloved by all who knew him, and will be deeply missed.
