Lawrence Fried Liebenbaum Obituary
December 26, 1935 - January 12, 2018 Devoted husband, wonderful father, friend and family member, Larry was a lover of classical music, a great chamber pianist, a terrible driver, and an afficionado of sushi, dim sum, barbecue, and "dad jokes." He was born in the midst of the Great Depression in Hollywood and, except for the four years he served in the Navy in Japan where his first experience with wasabi was a practical joke by his friend who said it was avocado, he lived his entire life in Southern California. In what looked like a hell of a party, he married Roberta Lee Katz of West Los Angeles, whom he loved at first sight, in June 1962. He would love her truly for the rest of his life, even if he did have Sofia move in the week after Bobbie died. The family was supportive, though, because we're all "cat people," and Sofia is a very cute calico. Larry was an attorney for nearly 40 years, and an active member of the LA County Bar Foundation, the Conference of Delegates, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Larry succumbed to leukemia after a valiant battle during which he fell in love with Sacramento, where he moved to be closer to his daughters and eat Gunther's Ice Cream and South Fried Chicken. Larry is survived by his daughter Andi, of Sacramento, his daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, Julie, Darius, and Bella, of Boonville, and his sister, Linda, of La Quinta. A celebration of Larry's life has yet to be planned, but it's likely to be a lot of fun. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Larry's favorite charities and the Democratic Party would help make the world a better place. Please remember him with donations to the Humane Society, the ASPCA, The Nature Conservancy, and Flip the 14.
