Lisette Victores Brana wrote

RIP Leo Vela, you were THE VOICE, a true master at your craft and DJ extraordinaire. You were a very good friend of Ray Martinez, I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend babe. He would often mention you and play your music when he was on the air and would call you afterwards and was so happy about our relationship. I unfortunately was not even close to the friendship you both shared but he was always very gracious whenever I ran into him. The picture below was one of those times at a Halloween bash with my dear friend Ana Alonso, organized by Maria C. Ruiz, and also Albertico Rodriguez and Leo, some years back. Leo you have been sorely missed since you were unable to continue mesmerizing with your voice, over the airwaves. There must be great music being played in Heaven. 1717 7 Comments Like Comment Share

Leo you will be missed! We are starting to loose people of our generation of the 70’s …I suppose that now most of us are in our late 50’s to mid 60’s. The wheel of life keeps spinning forward..Live today, for tomorrow is not guaranteed..RIP Leo!
