Sincerest Condolences to the Leibman Family , Great Character actor in Slaughter House 5, always enjoyed his comic performances as well great timing , RIP

I had the privilege of directing Ron in a series years ago. I was an admirer of his great comic gifts before the series but was awed by his ability to make something out of not too much and his generosity as a performer. He was the consummate pro, a powerful actor, and a wonderful man. I loved being around him and was proud to call him a friend. We have lost a great talent and a great man. We lost him too soon. Deepest condolences to Jessica and the family.

RIP Ron - the World will miss you. We met on the set of Slaughterhouse 5 in Prague, the beautiful city you loved, we went to the Synagogue, Jewish Cemetery, and you and tour wife Linda Lavine came to relax after shoots in our home, just about 500 steps above the then Best hotel - Hotel International, where you, George Roy Hill, Valerie Perrine, and many stars all staff spent their evenings. You generously signed my Affidavit of Financial Support, which helped me to immigrate to he USA after the Russian Invasion. I am sure you knew I will never ask you for a penny of support, but you also knew that without that document I would not have been able to come join you, Linda, and many other Jewish artists in this wonderful land of the Free! May your soul stay in heaven and you can count on me finding you up there some day Ron! Shalom. John - the US soldier who stood behind you in all the scenes in Slaugterhouse 5 in a GI uniform just like yours.

Dear Jessica, My deepest sympathy goes out to you for the death of an old friend, Ron. My husband and I went to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts with Ron. I also worked for Ron's Dad for 11 years. I saw Ron at the office and haven't really spoken to him since he called me about his Dad's passing. You don't know me but I was friends with your Aunt Ruth. We did a few shows together and I kept in touch with her until her passing. I am so sorry for your loss. With Sincere sympathy, Angela Van Heest Mannino
