Leon Michael Barros

October 27, 1948 ~ May 4, 2018 (age 69)

His smile and joy for life brightened lives from Nicaragua to southern California where he roamed the beaches in search of vballers.
Lee was an avid beach volleyball player, known from Marina Del Ray, to Torrance, Manhattan Beach and more recently Pig Beach.
He was a pro with camera and could get great pictures of people that never looked good in pics. 
He left a legacy of a man happy and helped every one around him to be happy.


Leon Michael Barros entered our world, October 27, 1948, and moved on to new territory, May 04, 2018. Leon was 69 years old when he passed away. He lived a full life.

He will be survived, by: Jack C. Barros (Brother); Terrisha Barros- Council (Niece); Jack C. Barros, Jr. (Nephew); and, his close companion, Mary Mac.

Leon will be sorely missed, though fondly remembered. During his four years of service in the U.S. Air Force, Leon worked as a Combat Photographer. Leon served his fours years proudly.

During his final days, he traveled frequently between California and Nicaragua, and will be missed by a large community of friends.


On behalf of Destiny Funeral Home: Thank you for your service, Leon. You have obviously touched many hearts during your lifetime.
