Obituary: Leo Landman

A longtime jeweler in Chicago, he lived to see his beloved Cubs win the World Series in 2016.

Leo Thomas Landman, age 87, died Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2017, in Atlanta.

Leo lived most of his life with his family in Chicago, where he worked as a jeweler, eventually opening his own business, Landman Jewelers. Leo was an amazing storyteller and was known for his warm smile and hearty laugh. The only thing that made Leo happier than his Chicago Cubs winning the World Series was the love he had for his family.

Survivors include his loving wife of 67 years, Marcia Goldstein Landman; son and daughter-in-law Richard and Ferne Landman of Chicago; daughter and son-in-law Bonnie and Ted Brand of Marietta; daughter and son-in-law Rhonda and George Flynn, Marietta, GA; brother and sister-in-law Sheldon and Toni Landman of West Dundee, Ill.; grandchildren Rebecca Landman, Jacob (Michal) Brand, Shana Brand, Miriam Brand, Molly Flynn and Connor Flynn; and great-grandchildren Ariel and Elan Brand. Leo was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Molly Landman, and brother and sister-in-law Melvin and Marianne Landman.
