Leon Rea, age 74, of Villa Park, IL, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on Wednesday, November 4th, 2020. Loving father of David (Debbie) Rea, Nicole (Mike) Khalil and Danielle (Ryan) Conley; beloved grandpa and papa of Tyler and Hailey Rea, Zack and Noah Khalil, Sean, Anna and Brendan Conley; dear brother of Penny, Edward “Mitchie,” Chrissy, Raymond and the late Darlene.
Leon found joy in many things, big and small. He loved taking trips to Wisconsin and Canada to go fishing with his friends. He enjoyed his trips to Las Vegas where he would attend cigar events and have a little fun gambling, always coming home with a memorable story to share. He was an avid fan of the Chicago Bears, Blackhawks and White Sox. Leon will always be remembered as a hard worker, a giving person, a lover of the oldies and a proud dad and grandpa. Leon's proudest achievements in life were his three kids and his biggest joys were his 7 grandchildren. He found happiness in the laughter he shared with his family and friends. Leon’s kind spirit and genuine smile will live on in our hearts forever and he will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
Visitation will be held Saturday, November 14, 2020 from 2 PM to 7 PM at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main Street, Lombard, IL 60148.
