Leonardo Mendoza, 76, of Santa Ana, Manila, Philippines, passed away on Sept 7th, 2021 at Stanford Hospital, after a valiant battle with throat cancer.
Ding, as his relatives and friends call him, was born on November 22nd, 1944 to Priscila and Alipio Mendoza in Gagalangin, Tondo, Manila. He will be remembered for his fun-loving spirit, kind smile, rambunctious laughter, and his thirst for adventure.
Ding loves politics and even considered running for office in his heyday. He enjoys listening to songs of the 60s and watching the news. He loves traveling and bantering with friends. He doesn’t say no if you offer him coffee, or better yet, beer or wine!
