Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA June 23, 1956 p2
Leon Ernest Force, retired president and general manager of the Douglas Fir Export Co., died yesterday morning at his Pebble Beach home on Cypress drive. He had suffered briefly from a cardiac ailment. Mr. Force was a native of Courtland, Neb., where he was born Oct. 12, 1885. After a 30 years’ association with the Douglas Fir Export Co. in Seattle, Wash., he retired early in 1953, coming in August of that year to establish his Pebble Beach home. Prior to World War I, during which he served as a post captain in San Francisco, Mr. Force was a member of Hind, Ralph and Co. of Seattle. He was a member of the Washington Athletic Club and Marine Digest of Seattle. Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Nina Force of Pebble Beach; a brother, Perley H. Force of Seattle; and two sisters, Mrs. Kate Mason of Los Gatos and Mrs. A.T. Munroe of Kalispell, Mont. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday in the Little Chapel by-the-Sea, with the Rev. Dr. George Davison of Pebble Beach officiating. Entombment will take place in the family crypt at Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma. Honorary pallbearers will be Herbert Atwood, David Girdwood, Carl Hahn, George G. Jamieson, Alfred E. Wolff, George B. Davidson, Dr. Ellis Bovlik, Clarence Jones and J. Abernathy.
