Life Story for Leonard Stein

Husband, Father, Grandfather

Leonard Stein was born in Chicago on July 2, 1923 and moved to Los Angeles at age 1. He attended grade school in the Boyle Heights area, and later moved to attend Foshay Junior High and Manual Arts High School. At the start of World War II, before enlisting, he worked in an aircraft factory.

On Veteran’s Day, November 11, 1943, Leonard Stein enlisted in the Army and served in Europe. Once he returned to the United States, he attended University of Southern California on the GI Bill.

In November 1947, he met Frances Seid at a party and they married on August 31, 1949. In 1950, Leonard graduated from USC with a Bachelor of Arts in business. They went on to have three children — Ralyne, Marcia, and Bryan.

After college, he worked as an accountant in several retail mens’ stores before transitioning to a Rodeo Drive women’s clothing business. He retired in 1988 and then worked as an independent contractor doing accounting for several businesses.

Leonard and his family lived in the San Fernando Valley for almost 40 years, before moving to Sun City, Las Vegas in 1993, where he enjoyed making new friends and exercising at one of the fitness centers 7 days a week.

Odd years played an important role in his life. Both he and Frances were born in odd numbered years as were all of their children. Len and Fran were wed in an odd numbered year as well.

Leonard had an unfailing sense of humor throughout his life and loved to tease just about everyone he encountered. He loved all things chocolate — you didn’t dare order a non-chocolate dessert or you were sure to endure a good ribbing.

His two greatest loves were spending time with his children and grandchildren and traveling, especially cruising — he and Fran went on nearly 50 cruises. He liked to remind everybody that his first cruise was on the Queen Mary in 1943 with 18,000 other troops.

He is survived by his wife, Frances Stein, daughters Ralyne Soloski (Lee) and Marcia Stein (Zvi), son Bryan Stein and grandchildren, Brianna Soloski and Jared Soloski.
