Leon A. Felman

Leon A. Felman, died on December 3, 2015 at the age of 80. 

He moved to St. Louis with his family at age 32, rented a small house and opened his first restaurant. Twenty five years later he was considered a prominent, but very private, businessman – investor. He spent the last 20 years of his life doing the things he loved. He generously contributed to dozens of charitable institutions that protected animals, children and veterans. He served on the boards of St. Louis Public Radio, Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation, University of Missouri (UMSL) and others. He mentored young entrepreneurs and continued to actively participate in business.

Leon’s great love for the Cardinals and all things sports was only surpassed by his deep love for his family and friends to whom he was fiercely loyal. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Harriet; son Seth Felman; daughter and son-in-law Amy and Stephen Levin; his grandchildren Chase, Hannah and Drew Felman and Eli and Samantha Levin; and his brother-in-law, Bernard Lipscher. He will be sorely missed.
