Pantaleon, “Leon” was born on July 9, 1933 in Badoc, Ilocos Norte, Philippines to the late Sixto and Dominga Bactad Pagdilao.

He soon took position as the neighborhood’s friendliest gardener, handyman, and his most favorite job “Tata” Leon. He is famous for guiding his grandchildren to and from their elementary school, tricycling his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and gardener of fresh Filipino veggies and tropical fruits he’d share even to strangers. Anyone could spot him walking in a plaid shirt and his Laker’s hat, especially to Pearlridge Kam Swap Meet to purchase second-hand items for all his projects. Leon was everyone’s everyday “hello, how are you, and thank you”. His loveable personality made him well-known. Leon’s smile and laugh illuminated his prosperous life and with every breath, he triumphed through this journey.
