After a short battle with anemia, complicated with pneumonia, Leonard Kolber lost the fight on March 8, 2013 at the Summerlin Hospital. He was preceded by his 1st wife, Gloria, with whom he has two children: son, Richard & wife Nancy w/ two daughters, Bonnie & Jenny, & daughter, Susan & husband, Dr. Allan Goodman, w/ two sons, Matthew & Dr. Aaron Goodman w/his wife Dr. Amalia Aleck Goodman. Survived by his 2nd wife, Gigi, blessed together for 15 yrs.
He lived a full life–enjoyed reading, watching tv esp. sports, & barbecuing & grilling. He was a horse racing buff in Chicago, CA & here in Vegas, a frequent at our local, The Suncoast.
He will have his funeral & burial in his native Chicago, beside his 1st wife.
Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Leonard Kolber. May you be strengthened and encouraged to know that God will provide much comfort to you in the days ahead as you cope with the passing of your loved one. We are encouraged by His words at Revelation 21: 4 which says of our future hope: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Jehovah has also given us the hope of a resurrection at John 5:28 where He says “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” May the friends and family be comforted during this time of great loss.
Your kind words are deeply appreciated.
I only just found out about Leonard’s passing this morning and was very saddened by the news. As one of my father”s oldest friends from childhood, Leonard always had a special place in our family’s heart.
My love to the entire family.
