Len and I worked at Canadian Superior Oil in the late 70's. Over several conversations, we realized that we'd gone to school in Putney, London, England. In fact his boys school was just over the stone fence from Putney High Girls school where I went when Dad was stationed overseas after the war.
I loved his dry wit, and he and I would swap insults and laughter, which made my day.
He was a remarkable man, and I felt a genuine loss when I changed companies, and had to leave him behind.
