Leonard B. Schneider Obituary
July 18, 1922 - October 4, 2016 Leonard B. Schneider (also known as "Papa" by his adoring Grandchildren) passed away peacefully at his home in Sherman Oaks, California on October 4, 2016. From the time he was 16 until his death at 94, he was a brilliant and creative business innovator. He built a chain of employment agencies in Chicago by the age of 27, developed over a thousand cooperative housing units throughout LA (including the first high-rise residential building on Wilshire Boulevard), and started his own global executive search firm. Even in his last year, he was on a mission to create much needed low income housing in Los Angeles. His greatest accomplishment, however, was as a generous and loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He is survived by his children Diane Marihew (Paul), Patti Hunter (Billy), Eric Schneider and Mark Schneider; grandchildren Micah Dickey (Maria), Zachary Hunter, Nicholas Hunter, Alison Hunter, Bryce and Hannah Rogers; great- grandchildren Cora and Micah James (MJ), and brother Roland (Sandy). Leonard was laid to rest at Hillside Memorial on October 7, 2016. We love you and will miss you.
