Len was my SAC when I was at the Frankfurt Field Office during the mid 70's when I was a WO1. That tour in Frankfurt will always be remembered. He will be surely missed!

I'm so suprised to learn of Lennie's passing. I was with him at Fort Dix 1971. I had Joined CID in January of 1971. Rest in peace Lennie.

Len and I served together at Frankfurt, he took over as SAC when I retired. He was one of the best. Always ready to go the extra mile and always seemed happy. He will be missed.

I worked with Lenny when I was MPI at Ft Dix, and then he was my SAC when I finally took the plunge and went to CID. Good guy.

I met Lenny 45 years ago when I was transfered to A. P. Hill, VA. We were both very young MPs who as it turned out grew up about 30 miles from each other. I remember that even then Lennie wanted to get into CID and even had his own "trench coat". That fall he was dating a cute blonde and when I met her I fell head over heels for her. When I told him how I felt he backed out and I ended up with the love of my life. Sue and I have been married since Oct 64.
I have always been grateful to Lenny and he will be missed. Rest in peace my brother.

I have known Lennie since 1971. We were both appointed "wobbly 1's on the same date, 1 Feb 71. I always kidded him that I had three hours TIG on him since Col John Liddle came to Brooklyn, appointed me, then back to Ft Dix to appoint Lennie on the way back to Ft Meade. He was a fine gentleman, and good agent. What else is there to say? RIP my friend.
