Obituary

Adan S. Leal, beloved Husband and Father, celebrated his 80th birthday at home surrounded by his family and loved ones before he was called to his eternal resting place after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer on September 13, 2020. He was born in the Rio Grande Valley in Elsa, Texas on September 12, 1940 to Isidro Sr. and Juanita Leal.

Even though he was born in the Valley, the small town of Lockhart Texas was where he made his home with his wife of 61 years, Adelfa Medina Leal and where their four children grew up and attended school. He spent many years working as a truck driver for the local Feed Mill (Master Mix) and other trucking firms in the area. In his early years, he enjoyed playing softball, golf, dancing and spending time with family and friends enjoying Lockhart's world-famous BBQ. One of his all-time favorite pastimes included listening and dancing to Tejano music with his most memorable songs from the group La Mafia.

In his retirement years, he spent many years at their Niederwald country home where he could be found hitting a few golf balls in their back yard. He also developed a love of all things classic - classic cars that is. He spent many years working on and restoring his 1967 gold & black Oldsmobile 442 - it was a labor of love! He was also a devoted member to his local church; Santa Cruz Catholic Church where he formed new friends and supported the work of the church. In his spare time, he was able to travel, kept dancing and enjoyed cruising and vacationing with family.

Adan is survived by his wife, Adelfa Medina Leal in Kyle where they recently moved to be closer to family. He will be greatly missed by his four children: Alma L. Alvarez, Gustavo and his wife Simonne Leal, Norma L. Vargas and her husband Paul (deceased), Adam and his wife Audra Leal. In addition, he is also survived by his brothers/sisters: Isidro Jr (deceased ) and wife Maria Leal, Lupe and husband Rodolfo (deceased) Rivera, Abel and his wife Sofia Leal, Maria Mirtala Villarreal, Consuelo(deceased) and husband Martin Velasquez, Pete and his wife Teresa Leal and Juanita and her husband Lupe Barba.

In addition, all his grandchildren who loved to call him "Popo" will miss him dearly: Jennifer N. Leal, Jordan Leal-Vargas, Jarod Paul Vargas, Jaydyn Malia Vargas, Blanca Alvarez, Camilo(Milo) Alvarez, Aaron Leal, Zoe Leal, Adriel Leal, Elijah Leal, Annabella Leal, Olivia Leal, Areli Dena, and Layla Dena.
