Goodbye to Leo

Hi Fellow BWE Friends,

It's with a sad heart that we share the news of Leo Terrero's passing yesterday morning. Leo had been battling cancer for the last couple of years.

He was a LJ kayak fisherman and good friend to many of us and will surely be missed.

There will be a service to say good bye to him and details will be posted when available.

Rest in Peace Leo. You will be missed!

OH NO!!! Last time i saw Leo was on feb 22. He was walking with his wife at La Jolla Shores enjoying the sunset. He was telling me that the tax payers paid way too much for the life guard tower.

He was very positive that day and said, "I will back in my kayak real soon again"

Sorry to hear about his passing away. Leo was a good man

I knew Leo well, he was enthusiastic, fun to talk to, positive and above all a good hearted friend. He will be missed, I will always picture him in his small fish and dive with a White Seabass almost bigger then the kayak, what a sight. If he wasn't on the water he would be hiding out at the shores checking on the daily catch. RIP my friend.

Very sad news.

I'l never forget the first time I met Leo. I had just landed at the shores, and he landed right after me a little further down the beach. He walks over to me, covered head to toe in blood, lugging a nice size yellowtail, smiling ear to ear, and wearing nothing but a speedo.

Every time after that I saw Leo, whether he had a yellowtail or had been skunked, he still had that grin from ear to ear (and frequently the speedo). Truly a man that enjoyed life and lived it to its fullest.

Rest in peace bother

Safe Passage..

The Jewel will not be the same again without the frequent sightings of good ol’ Leopoldo..

An extremely gifted & talented man. I have had the pleasure of many a good times out & about with Leo. Extremely kind & generous soul who loved the ocean and cooking up EVERY piece of fish he caught, so much so, that he even asked for my yt or wsb heads for his famous Sancocho soups. Leo would share that, the recipes, recent fish action and anything else within his arms reach for you. A true gent around these parts!..
Here is a short video he shot of me on one of many fishing excursions over the years..This one was over at Blacks. He frequented that part of the canyon & the Torrey artificial reef whenever the pressure would get thick..
Flying your plane high over Venezuela right about now with your speedo..
Heres to you Leo!

Very sad to hear it. Leo was one of the most genuine guys I have met on the water and certainly the most stoked. RIP good man.
