Len was one of the finest gentlemen I have met. I met Len when I joined the Treasure Coast Woodcarvers as a novice 9 years ago. Len was unable to see but could detect problems with a carving by feel and his advice was always given in a constructive manner. Several members enjoyed lunch together and his friends Buster and Bill always made certain Len was at the club and joining activities on a regular basis. He was helpful when Augie Albanese discovered his macular degeneration and offered many helpful ideas in his daily dealing with this debilitating disease. Len will be sorely missed for his cheerful presence and knowledge about carving and living a full and productive life. Edythe and his children will be in our prayers as they deal with his loss.
