  • My condolences to your family at this time. Lenny was a wonderful person who will be sorely missed. He had the greatest sense of humor. He was the best friend that you could ever ask for to my daughter Heather and also to the rest of my family. Heaven is richer and we are poorer today

  • I have been so blessed to have been able to have Lenny as my friend for twenty seven years. He was a loyal friend; which is difficult to find these days. Everyone that knew him loved him. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. My condolences go out to his family and all of his friends.

  • To Lenny’s family, my sincerest sympathy. He will surely be missed. I met Len through volley ball, he was the A league and I was a rookie who wanted to play with the big guys. He was always willing to explain the game and help me get better, because of him I did get to play with the A team. He was patient, kind and understanding with volleyball and in every aspect of our friendship. He had a great sense of humor and was always there with humor when I needed it as well as a hand to help, if need be.
    I have many fond memories, of volleyball and (ski for me…. snowboard for him) trips, filled with laughter, fun and friendship. Although in recent years our friendship consisted of mostly occasional trips into Utopia to catch up, it was always worth the extra stop, for the smile and warm greeting that would be received. If the soul lives on then, every friendly smile or a helpful hand from a stranger I encounter, will be a way to remember him.
