It was very sad to hear the passing of my dear friend Lenny. I worked with Lenny for 10 plus years at Mohegan Sun. We talked many times about his days in the movie theater business and all the posters he collected. We even saw him a few times when he worked at Gallery Cinemas when I'd take the kids to see a movie. He was a great friend and co-worker. He'd always joke with me when he'd see me in the hallway at work saying, "You running this joint yet?" I could sit and listen to him talk about his life for hours and he always had time for me. Always greeted me with a handshake and warm smile asking, "How's the family". He even gave me a few movie posters that I tried to pay him for but refused to take my money. He was the measure of a true friend and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. God bless

For the years I have known Lenny (42 years) I have gone from being a customer at the movie theater he worked at, to being an employee of his at the movie theater, to co-worker at his last place of employment. After all these years of friendship and camaraderie, I consider this kind, wonderful, person a friend and like family. You will always have a place in my heart, as a great and wonderful friend, I will miss our conversations about the "good ol' days", "fella" (as Lenny always called us when we spoke). My thoughts and prayers to his family. God Bless.

I am very sorry to read this. Lenny was a kind man who always made me smile when I worked with him at the movies in Norwich. My prayers go out to you at this difficult time.
