I will never forget his bowling tips. He was a special person and loved to share what he knew to help others excel too. Les and I had a great time bowling with Len and Cathy. Thank you Len and Cathy for being such great friends.

Leonard and I are classmates at Hillsboro, and he lived on my mail route for a good while. I am saddened to learn of his passing. Sympathies to the family.
