Memories Timeline


  1. A true friend to the very end. Words can not express the true sadness I feel today.

    I lost one of the most genuine, most giving and most honorable friends today. I

    was blessed and truly fortunate to call him my friend and father figure. Over 40

    years of friendship, he taught me many things. One of the things he felt strongly

    about was helping others or giving back. That’s something I have promised to

    do in his honor. I will miss the days of going into the store and hearing “ Hi honey”.

    Lenny is forever in my heart as one the best friends any person could ever ask for.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Judy, Alexis and Ron.

    Lenny was my boss from 1985-1986. He was a great boss and a good friend. When I meet my now wife Lenny took care of me and help make that moment great. He was a giving person that I will all was remember and be glad that he was a part of my life. My prayers go out to his family. You will all be in my families praises.

    With deepest sympathy go out to Judy, Alexis and Ron.

  3. Like so many others, my life was changed because of Lenny. He started my career working with young people when he asked me to coach Ron in Termite Basketball. I continued in that sport and coached Alexis when she was at Weir High. I still coach today and would never have begun that vocation if it weren’t for Lenny guiding me in that direction. I always enjoyed being around him and he always made you feel better when he was with you. It has been an honor to know Lenny and his family.

  4. The most loving and kind friend a person could have. Lenny will always be in our hearts. Your husband and father was the kindest person one could know and will remain very special to us. Our love and prayers are with Judy, Alexis and Ron.
