He is survived by his brother Jesus Leal (Criselda) and sisters, Herlinda Sotelo (Jose) and Esther Toscano (Gene) as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

Laurencio proudly served in the Army for more than three years and fought in World War II. He served overseas in Ireland, England, France, Luxembourg, Germany, and Austria. He drove an ambulance in the Battle of the Bulge and loved sharing war stories with family and friends. He was an avid golfer, winning many local and national tournaments over his lifetime as a member of the National Pan American Golf Association.
