We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts go out to you.
Thankful that you came out to Tucson to visit us when we first moved here. We enjoyed your visit so much. And we remember the New Year's Eve parties at the H.Y.C., with you and Len.

Len, I sure am going to miss you. You always had a big hug and kiss for me.
I never told you this but as a kid at WUMC, I loved watching you and Barb. I didn’t know you then. You were, to me, the couple I wanted to be when I grew up. Holding hands, going to church together.
I will treasure my short time with you at choir practice and Sunday service.
Don’t you worry about Barb. She’s got loads of people to take care of her. Myself included.

Lenord is and was of the most helpful individuals in my life. He was a great coach, husband, guidance counselor and one of the most giving individuals I have ever met. Lenny was a life saver and always had time to help others, espicially for his students at Westlake High School. Lenny provided a wonderful reading tutior for me by the name of Mrs. Montan that provided a great future for myself and my family. Lenny gave up his weekends to run a Saturday recreation league to help Coach Irwin have so much success with the Westlake High School Basketball Team. Lenny will always be the man behind the scene to make others better. Love you Lenny and I never knew that we have the same middle name. Lenny and coach Irwin are and will always be the two best coaches in Westlake Ohio. Thanks Lenny and God Bless You, from Scott Charles Grau class of 78.

Lenny was a wonderful guy and a terrific neighbor. Always a smile on his face. Always time for conversation. What a great guy he will be missed.

Thinking of Len’s family at this difficult time. Barb P participated in the bell choir and the chancel choir with Len. I remember him helping me through the complexities of playing the big bass bells. He was very dedicated to both choirs. He also was such a valuable member of WUMC. His loss will be felt by many. Rest well you good and faithful servant. We miss you!!
