I worked with Len briefly at FDIC, and found him to be one of the friendliest, nicest guys around. All of us who knew him are shocked and saddened for your loss. I can truly say that, even though I only knew him a short time, it was clear right away that he was a wonderful human being ... reading his obituary revealed so much more about this wonderful man. Please accept my condolences but know that he had an impact on others that was positive and good! God bless you.

Rhonda, I offer my sincere sympathies to you and your family. I knew Len from his days at Dal-Tile. We had many chats about life and of course our jobs; he was always the consummate professional. Though our paths had not crossed in recent years, I had the hope we would see each other on an area golf course.
May you be blessed with God's grace in these early days of separation and be comforted to know that Len is with our Lord.

Len, like our Mother, you were taken too soon in life and from the family that loved you. You are missed but will live on in our hearts until we meet again. Rest well my brother.
