Debbie, Regina & family, It was an honor and pleasure to serve many years with Len at the Navy base. No doubt you have heard by now how he took many a junior technician/petty officer under his wing - he thrived on being their mentors. After hearing today how he raised his step children as his own, and was so devoted to his grandkids, it was touching to be reminded of his steadfast, nurturing soul.
Blessings,
