Alex Wenger, age 92, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 1, 2019, at his home in West Los Angeles, California. He was born August 12, 1927, in Monterrey, Mexico, to Asia and Moses Wenger.
Alex came to California with his parents and four siblings in 1945. He and his family opened the store, Wenger Furniture & Appliances, in 1945 in East Los Angeles. The store prospered and is still successfully run by family today.
Alex was known for being a wonderful storyteller and joke-teller and for his inimitable voice and enthusiasm. He loved conversation with old friends and family, and made new friends easily. He and his wife Bootsie loved travel. Alex was a lifelong fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Lakers and was a talented amateur bowler.
He is survived by his wife, Bootsie to whom he was happily married for 70 years; his sister, Clare Weinstein; his daughter, Eileen Pan; his three grandchildren, Aaron, Adam and Jessica Pan; his great-grandchildren, Ephraim, Jacob, Oliver, Jack and Jonah Pan and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his children, Frances Anne and Michael Edward.
In lieu of flowers, family, friends, and others are invited to donate in his memory to the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE).
