Leonard Friedman, 94, of Ponce Inlet, FL, formerly of Manhattan, NY, went to God on February 4, 2020. He was born in New York City to Adolph and Margaret Friedman on July 11, 1925.
Leonard was a WWII Navy Veteran, serving with the Seabees, and 140th/123rd Naval Construction Battalion. He graduated Pace College of New York City with a degree in Business Administration. He was a member of the Disabled American Veterans, VFW, a contributor to the US Olympic team, HRYC (Halifax River Yacht Club), Temple Israel, and Epiphany Catholic Church.
Leonard, the Lion, “Namer” whose Hebrew name was Leib Wolf Ben Chaim Amram, lived a full life. Lennie was a pure Mensch, not to mention his subtle sense of humor. Our gratitude to our endearing caregivers and nurses for several years of understanding and loving kindness.
