He was related by blood and marriage to a long line of distinguished original Californians. Leo's greatest fame came from his portrayal of Pancho, the sidekick to Duncan Renaldo's Cisco Kid, an early 1950's TV series.

The park is located 28 miles northwest of Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1.)
