We would like to send our sincere condolences to Lenny's entire family of children and their spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Lenny was truly a man's man! His love for sports, gambling, the race track, golf and music is legendary. His love for family was extraordinary as he beamed with pride at the mention of his family. He lived a full and wonderful life enjoying every minute to the fullest. He spent the latter part of his life with his beloved Natalie which brought great joy to both of them. He will be missed.
