Lenny Steven Pereira passed away on Tuesday April 6, 2021 at the age of 50, with his wife and daughters by his side. He was a beloved husband to Rachael and father to his two daughters, Kylie and Makayla, as well as a talented and well-respected athlete, in both hockey and golf. Len was destined for greatness; his athletic and professional accomplishments speak for themselves. He was a two-time All-American at Plattsburgh State University, member of the National Champion team in 1991-1992, and inducted into the Plattsburgh State Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016. Professionally, he was the President of Franklin Valve in Houston, Texas from 2009-2019. Len, always armed with determination, strived to be a part of something larger than himself. Whether it was on the ice, in a boardroom, on a golf course, or in a clinical trial, Len rolled up his sleeves and wanted to be a part of a team that elevated its players, had purpose in solving problems and at the end of the day, made everyone a little bit better.

He enjoyed the comradery of sport, he said, “It was about the fellowship, brotherhood, discipline and commitment.” Len was respected and loved by those he worked with because of his dedication and loyalty to their personal and professional development. His message to others: be humble, work hard, respect all and expect nothing, and capitalize on opportunities as they arise in life but do so with fierce and unwavering determination.

For his short fifty years, Lenny’s accomplishments are broad and vast, but by far his greatest achievements are his daughters, Kylie and Makayla- his legacy. In them, Len said, “I got this right.”

He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Rachael; his two daughters, Kylie and Makayla; his parents Joe and Alda; his sister, Kelly, and her husband, Gabe, and many other loving family members and friends.

Being part of Rachael and Lenny's life is truly a gift. We were so lucky to all meet at Plattsburgh State and truly become a family with the soccer team and hockey team connections. No matter how near or far we were from eachother we were ALWAYS part of eachothers lives ALL these years. Through the marriages, births of our babies, and our kids gong to college. We were always there for each other. When we gathered back at Plattsburgh for the Hall of Fame at my house...we always picked up where we left off from 10-20 years ago. I am so thankful to know Lenny, Rachael and the girls. We all loved Lenny so much. ALWAYS here for you Rachael.
Love you, Sherm

Whether you refer to Lenny as son, brother, husband, father, boss, colleague or friend; one thing is common, a great man improving himself and those around him. Lenny always offered kindness, wisdom, generosity, his frankness and humor to everyone. All the journeys Lenny had taken on in life with intensity, we'll see each other again. Godspeed  Lenny.

I love you and miss you tremendously. You were a great co-worker who I enjoyed working closely with over the years. You were extremely successful because of your hard work and passion for the tasks at hand. You became an even better friend and we shared many great times together. Often we teamed up on the golf course. We didn't always win, but we were the best dress duo out there. As you said, "it's about the costume". Anyone who knew you and you touched, are better people today for it. May you rest in peace my friend and always have a smile when you look down upon your family and friends.

I am so sad I was unable to meet you but I do know you gave great joy, happiness, comfort, and love to not only your family but your "tribe." I have no doubt you are sharing this equally as you entered and were welcomed into God's home and your family in Christ. Rachael and the girls, I hope you find comfort he suffers no longer and he remains with you everyday. I also know he was so proud of how you all brought attention to ALS and what others could do to help find the cure. I truly am sincerely sorry for your loss.
Stay Blessed and Love

Dear Lenny,
I think I was the most fortunate Indian associated with you in business. But very soon more than business you became very closer to heart as personnel and family friend. Your business acumen, respect for friendship, dedication both in work and your family made you a role model for many. You did everything to me which nobody could come forward to do. The way you introduced me to another competitor touched my heart and proved your love and care towards me. But now I feel as the most unfortunate man as I have lost you. You will be in my memories for ever and ever. Like every body God also must have loved you and that’s why God has taken you to keep closer to Him.
I miss you ……. miss you…… miss you so much Lenny.
With memories
Raj & Family- India.

Rach, I love you girl and send all of my best to you and the girls, Len's family and friends.

I met Lenny whilst doing my 5 year stint in Houston. We were first teamed up on the same hockey team , then became weekly golf buddies. He was the only other guy I played with that took the time for a proper "Golf Costume". We would meet for lunch and pour through the local Golf Galaxy to look for the next cutting edge piece for the the ensembles. For the obscure pieces we had to find on ebay, there was always a sharing of the finds with each other.
His love for his bride Rachael and his beloved daughters was alway on the forefront. His girls were his world.
I've traveled the world, been fortunate to meet many people and many are dear friends to this day. I have to say Lenny was one that was so far ahead of the average person it wasn't even funny. It was in business, family, sport and just general fun. I've only known Lenny since Sept 2009 but I feel I have known him my whole life. I've used him as a role model and also just an extremely solid friend. When I returned back to Canada, we stayed in touch just like I was living there. We connected every month I came down. He was truly one of my best friends and I will continue to live my life they way he would have to honor my dear friend.
I can see him now dangling through players in heaven with a little chirp along the way, rocking a great costume for the afternoon tee time just as always.
Miss ya Pal!
Love Johnnie.
