Leonard R. Jaffe Obituary
May 17, 1933 - September 4, 2017 A lifelong Angelino, Leonard graduated from Fairfax High School Class of '51, where he was a tight end on their football team (#37) and a member of the Cardinals. He attended UCLA where he was the social chairman of the ZBT fraternity, a role he continued to play throughout his life for his large circle of friends. Leonard was a "presence" wherever he went, and few who met him ever forgot him. He was a noted polo player and appeared in several films, including "Malice in Wonderland." Leonard will always be remembered as being larger than life. He loved the races, Italian food, J&B scotch, anything with sugar, monogrammed shirts and telling "stories." He is survived by his beloved wife, Patricia (Woodruff), his brother-in-law, Elliott, family and many, many friends. His family wishes to express their thanks to his many, many, many, many doctors, nurses and their office staffs. The light may have gone out, but the memories will shine forever. Services Thursday, 1 PM, Hollywood Forever, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd.
