Len and I grew up together and went school together at Gorsebrook and later QEH. A good guy and a true free spirit. We have been out of touch for many years, but still saddened to hear of his passing. RIP my old friend.

Despido con gran dolor a un gran amigo, que me enseñó que lo mejor de esta vida es un buen café y una buena conversación con un amigo, que hay que ser positivo ante la vida, como lo fue el hasta su último suspiro de vida.
En mi casa quedó un trozo de su alma, y se convirtió en un padre para mi. Lo recordare siempre con gran cariño y en mi alma tiene un lugar especial.
Dios recibelo en tus brazos.

Mis condolencias a toda la familia.

Hasta algún día amigo.

Siempre, Gladys

We were saddened to learn of Len's passing. We had many great conversations about growing garlic. Most of our garlic is descended from Len's seed stock. Like Len, our goal is always 4-clove bulbs.

I first met Lennie around the mid 70's, I was riding my pony up the road when I saw this guy. Looking at the time what my parents would of called a hippie. We had a great Chat and I walked my pony up to Millville with him as he walked along. He was heading over to where the Zoo is today, at that time across from my Grandfather's home. When he reached the Millville Bridge, we departed ways. I made a friend that day and every time I saw Lennie throughout the years we always had a nice chat.
RIP Lennie

So sorry to hear about Lennard. I have great memories of the times we spent together growing up in Halifax and at Camp Kadimah. We were quite close when we were young. I moved to Toronto and we last touch for a long time. However, we had a few nice chats in the last few years by phone, including a nice long talk this past August. Despite battling stage 4 cancer at the time, Lennard was in good spirits. He always had interesting things to tell me and he knew a lot, about so many things. I learned a lot from him . He was a sincere, nice guy. I have been thinking a lot about Lennard since I heard the sad news. My thoughts are with all of his family. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him well. Condolences to all.
