  1. Rest easy my dear Len. I will miss our lengthy conversations. You embraced life with your kindness, unique humor and the true spirit of “I got your back”!
    Thank you for spending your holidays with my family and embracing our craziness. Your positive outlook on life and it’s unexpected twists and turns always amazed me. I will never forget our excellent adventures to Madison and getting you out of the pediatric wheel chair, it still makes me smile.
    I love you my friend and I will miss you terribly.

  2. God Bless you Len. You had a heart of gold and were always willing to help your friends & co-workers. You entertained us for hours with stories of your youth and beyond. We will miss your incredible sense of humor, contagious laugh, and ever present smile on your face. Until we meet again….

I will never forget our excellent adventures to Madison and getting you out of the pediatric wheel chair, it still makes me smile. The trips to Northwestern, Chicago and you are giving me street by street, building by building directions and you can’t see!
    I love you my friend and I will miss you terribly, every day.

  4. My Friend, I have never known anyone more determined, more courageous or more compassionate than you. Your thoughtfulness and kindness we’re never ending. You made us all laugh. You inspired each of us to become better people. You have profoundly touched the hearts of all who were lucky enough to know you. We will never forget you. Sue, the “nurse”.

  5. I only met Leonard 3 weeks ago and I spent a lot of time just talking with Leonard and I learned real quick what a special person he was. Had a great attitude, sense of humor, and a good heart. So sad that GOD had to take him so early. RIP Leonard HCA Lori

  6. After all these years, no more phone calls, no more upbeat messages, no more ” I love you” Can’t accept this.
    You are forever our son our dear Len!
    Joyce and Roger

  7. Rest in peace Len. You survived so much adversity that I will forever look to you as an example of tough determination.
    You will be forever missed but in the hearts of all who knew you.
    Your battle is over. Rest in peace.

  8. To those of us who knew Len, he was an anomaly. He overcame adversity with determination, a sense of humor and a contagious smile. We will miss you. Rest in peace!

  9. Len, I know you are reading this. You confirmed that this last Saturday at your service. I can’t believe that you have only been on this earth for only 50 years. You never complained about your journey. You had no filters which allowed people into your life. For that life threw in your path, you plowed on through. What I loved about you most was that you were never embarrassed to ask for help. And on the other side, you always had our backs. I hope you are on the bike trip of a lifetime and if you get lost, I know you will make new friends. See you when I see you, Len. You rocked life!
