Len was an outstanding person and will be greatly missed by all who knew him
I remember going to his moms house when I was a little kid,lenny taught me how to ride a two wheel bike. remember birthday parties there, remember the ice cream shop on his street.so sorry for your loss.
Len has been a friend since our kids were little. Him and Ruth and Joe and I had a lot of good times!
He will be missed by many !
I am both shocked and saddened to see this. Len worked with us at Century 21 Prestige, and while there, he never knew a stranger.
Most knew him as an awesome financial consultant which is where is heart was, but he was such a great Realtor. So Blessed to have worked with him…he was loved and will be missed by so many. Special prayers to Jenny, Mike, and John….he loved you guys so much and of course the grandbkids! Family was always everything to your Mom and Dad. Not a doubt in my mind that your Mom was right there waiting.
To one of the best dressed men I know…..RIP Len….God Speed
