I remember two phrases he said quite often. One business and the other personal. Business was that it was easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Personal one was that there was only one thing better than having a boat and that was having a friend with a boat.

We just found out that Len had passed last night and are out of town and not able to attend the services but did watch on line. It certainly brought back a lot of memories when Jeff was talking from playing racquetball before work at Leavitt or playing a work football game where he wanted to play tackle football. He played everything hard. We will be praying for you and the kids and grandkids. He was a great boss but even a better friend

I will you both in Jim Clabaughs Sunday school class at Grace Bible Church in Sun City AZ. I truly liked Lens questions and also his answers as they helped me to understand the Bible better. After seeing the service I will also remember 2 things 1. That your daughter stated the Len prayed to be healed and that the prayer was answered because now he has been he has been healed, and 2 the Pastor read from 2 Timothy and stating that was the last book Paul wrote because he was dying and what the Pastor said really impacted me. So even today I have memories of Len. Prayers to all, Lynn Larson

Sorry I am unable to attend the Memorial Visitation. I enjoyed working with Len at Leavitt, and also will miss visiting with Len when he stopped at our House during his many Bike rides. Our deepest sympathy to you Bonnie and your family..... Tom and Sharon McGrath
