Leon Frieden Obituary
August 26, 1917 - August 4, 2017 Leon Frieden passed away peacefully just 3 weeks shy of turning 100. He grew up in McCamey, Texas. After graduation from the University of Texas, Leon moved to Los Angeles, where he married Vi, raised their daughter, Diane, and turned a "mom and pop" department store into a thriving business - Frieden's Department Store. In 1999, Leon married Arlene Levine and welcomed her daughter and grandchildren into his life. Leon was our family historian, an avid sports fan, and a master at riding life's ups and downs. His example sets the bar sky high - and we will deeply miss him. A celebration of Leon's life will be held later this month. Leon is survived by his sister Marion Hillman, nephews Sid Weiss and Ron Hillman, nieces Lori Polachek and Julie Solursh, stepdaughter Pam Sanders, and step-grandchildren Annie Sanders and James Espinosa.
