    My sister Marsha Faith and I are so very sorry to hear about Cousin Leonard’s passing. One of my fondest memories of Leonard was when he generously helped me through an accounting class at the University of Hartford. I also remember a record Leonard made way back when which my mother, Aunt Eleanor would play for us, a Polish Polka. Fond memories of a very successful life well lived. Our deepest sympathy

    My brother Robert and sister Maryann and I express our sadness at the
    loss of our cousin. Leonard achieved great heights in his career, but
    when he was with us, he was always a regular guy, talking about old
    times in New Britain. We always laughed with Aunt Helen, Uncle Frank.
    Carolyn, and Leonard. I always admired the way he loved his parents,
    treating them with great respect. He and Lesley made a great couple.
