Family members include:
Devoted husband of Bernice Burg, his wife of 55 years. Cherished father of Stephanie (Josh) Freedman and Barry Burg; Loving grandfather of Danielle, Jenna and Max. Devoted son of the late Ella and the late Benjamin Burg.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1934, Leonard graduated from James Madison High School and resided in Chicago for 44 years prior to moving to Michigan. Leonard was an executive in the women’s apparel industry throughout his professional career.

He will be remembered for his dedication to his wife, children, grandchildren and friends, as well as his creativity and charisma.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 10, for at least the month of March.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
