Jimmy C. DeLeon Obituary

Jimmy C DeLeon, 85 of Big Spring, Texas passed away on May 14, 2024.He was born on March 31, 1939, to Rodolfo and Guadalupe DeLeon. He lived in Big Spring all his life. He married Rosalinda Flores on June 28, 1957. In his early years he owned a gas station, and later worked for 7UP and then Coca Cola. He then dedicated his career to what was then the Cosden Refinery and later became Fina, from which he retired as a pipe fitter in 2000. He was fortunate to own what family referred to as "El Rancho." He raised various types of animals and livestock and treated his cattle as if they were his children. He loved to have family gatherings every weekend and made sure that everyone left with a full stomach and leftovers for home. Later in life he loved to gamble and make quick trips to the casino and would play on the "maquinitas" as much as he could. There was not a day that went by, that he did not have a lottery scratch of ticket within his reach. He dedicated his life to make sure that his children had what they needed and did not go without.


He is survived by his sons, Eugene DeLeon and Michael DeLeon of Big Spring. Daughters, Yvonne Myers and husband Rick, Yvette DeLeon and Jackie DeLeon of Big Spring.
