The Guest Book is expired.
1934 - 2012
Leon was born and raised in San Pedro. His grandparents was one of the first Norwegian families to settle in San Pedro, in the 1800s. He was talented, gentle and a very private person who was respected by all who knew him. He was a retired Inspector for the Port of Los Angeles and a commercial photographer. He was known as "Mr. Old Time San Pedro," due to his vast collection of old photos. Leon passed away on September 26th, at his home after a shockingly brief illness. He leaves his sister, Jean Caroline Callaway, his daughter, Aimee-Noel, and his wife, Mary. At his request, burial was private. In lieu of flowers please do Random Acts of Kindness in his name. We wish to thank all who eased his passing.
