ELI "DANTE" BAILEN DE LEON
June 27, 1949 November 22, 2020
Eli (Dante) Bailen de Leon passed away suddenly in Colorado Springs on 22 Nov 2020 at Penrose St Francis Health Center. He was born on June 27, 1949 in Manilla, Philippines and lived his life by helping others in need. He is survived by his wife Madel de Leon, his handsome son Baby Eli, his beloved daughters Tasha and Dana De Leon, his brothers Rey de Leon, Eliseo de Leon Jr, Cesar de Leon and his sisters Lisa Hogan, Gina Marie Bautista and Cecilia Garcia. Dante will be remembered and sadly missed by all who he generously put through college, helped to relocate, or otherwise assisted throughout the course of his life. We are grateful to have known a kind mentor and generous soul such as Dante. There will be a memorial service later in the year at Penrose St Francis Memorial Chapel.

To Kuya Eli in Heaven,

Eli de leon was a good man. Not because he is my brother in-law that I would proudly say that but because he really was, and he truly is. Though I met kuya Eli for just a short time due to separate circumstances and long distance, it's like I have known him for a very long time. The first time I met him was during his wedding with my younger sister Marydel wayback in 2017. From that time on, though there was not any other opportune time to meet him again, I knew this man is a good person because he treated me and my whole family and relatives very well just like what he did to his siblings and family. So kind and generous he was to people around him, especially to the ones closer to his heart. “Respect begets respect,” so I say for my brother in-law. He was a gallant person always ready to please a friend or even a stranger, and he knew how to handle every situation at hand. All of these I know because I was there even if it was just a glimpse of the past.
Kuya Eli, I know you’re in heaven now, but if you’re listening right now, please know that you will always be remembered by us — your families, relatives, and friends — who love and care for you as you always did when you were still with us. The great memories you have imprinted in our hearts will forever live on. Always watch over your wife Marydel and little son Eli Matthew, and please ask God a favor everyday to oversee your families and loved ones, because I know that you are in heaven and closer to our Almighty Creator who sees everything.

Tito Dante,
Thank you for all the sacrifices you made for the entire family. I'm grateful for the times I got to spend with you this last year and how you were able to see my kids all grown up. It was a gift from God for all of us in Colorado to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas together last year. You are loved and missed.

You greeted me with big bear hugs when we see each other during your vacations. Whenever you introduced me to your friends and guests at a gathering, it would always be with a compliment. These are my fondest memories of you. I feel blessed to have you as my Tito. Rest in peace, Tito Dante. Hug Nanay and Lolo Daddy for us.
