So sorry to hear this. Les was a true gentleman and while I only saw him for a few years as a patient before he moved to Atlanta, I thought of him as a friend. We would sit together while he told me stories about his father Murry and life in general.
I deeply regret his passing.

Dear Brody Family: I knew Les since the 4th grade in public school, we belonged to the same Temple, went to high school and college together, and spent many breakfasts, lunches and dinners together along with Doc Brody, Irene, Steve, Terry, Les, Barbara and Rich(ie) as my second family. Our parents were good friends. He was my personal attorney. My Dad encouraged Les to become a Lawyer and work for the Government (like my Dad did). Les knew I could not see him in Atlanta because I experienced a stroke this past May. Les said no problem, talking with him was good enough for him. I have lost a brother. But his guidance will always be with me.
I will miss him. I love you Les. Peter Kosarin

Dear Jenny, daughters, and entire Brody family. I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Les from from back in the 1950's at Camp Woodstock near Albany, N.Y. Les and I became good friends in 64' when were waiters together at the camp. We often played tennis and basketball together in our free time. Our friendship blossomed over that summer because of our mutual love of sports. I last saw Les at the camp reunion in 1985, he was still that humble and personable individual I remembered from camp. Les Brody will be remembered by me as the most admired and respected individual I ever met in my 12 yrs. at Camp Woodstock. A giant loss of a giant friend.

Dear Jenny and Les's beloved daughters and family. Extremely sorry to hear of the departure of Les, far too soon. I will always remember the successful and fun times we had back in the New York Office of SOL. Les always spread good humor, greatly appreciated, at 1515 Broadway and 201 Varick Street even in tense times. Jenny, you and Les met in the New York office and that romance succeeded over the many years that followed. Odette and I will remember you all and our sympathy and prayers are with you. Ted

So sorry for your loss...
Les and I were co- captains of the 1968 Queens College varsity baseball team and teammates for 4 years., including 1967 when we won our conference championship and were nationally ranked.
The reunion we had when our team was inducted into the QC HOF is a night I will always remember… especially the joy on Les’ face reminiscing and seeing teammates he hadn’t seen in 50 years.
That’s Les, next to Coach Tierney. I’m standing, in the middle...
It was inspiring to hear, from him, about all the physical ailments and surgeries he had gone through, and yet, athletically gifted as he was, continued to compete and play.
In a few weeks I leave for Phoenix and then Fort Myers to pitch in the over 65 and over 70 year old national championship tournaments. In my mind, and on my sleeve, I’ll be dedicating my efforts to “Tyke,” ( that’s what we called him) a great teammate and friend…

Jenny and Family:
I am so sorry for your loss. I, like everyone who worked with him at the DOL, have a "Les" story. It is those memories that will get us through these difficult times. I know that you and the girls were the most important in his heart, and that he loved you all very deeply. I know he is in heaven watching over you all and running around with your dog Sucker.

Jenny and Family,

Bonnie and I are so very saddened by the news of Les' passing. We recall with a big smile the times we all spent together hanging out in your basement, taking day trips to Helen GA and watching our girls, Dalit and Gabi, grow up together and become best friends for life.

Our thoughts truly go out to you and your family.

All our love

I am deeply saddened to have learned of the passing of my friend Les Brody. Les and I worked together at the U.S. Department of Labor in New York, where he was an extraordinarily talented trial attorney with a fun-loving and irrepressible personality. In 1994 he took those talents to the Atlanta office, leaving behind a legacy in NY that’s never been forgotten by the many colleagues and friends who admired, respected and loved him, as did those in the Southeast. Les was truly one-of-a-kind. Besides his professional accomplishments, he was a competitive athlete, and remained so almost to the end, competing in tennis leagues after his basketball-playing days ended (in his fifties) due to chronic medical problems. Les was among my best friends in DOL, and otherwise. I loved the guy, and I will always hold dear the memories of our times together. ….Irv Miljoner, Oceanside, NY
