Monica we would like to extend our Condolences and Sympathy to you and your family during this time of sorrow with the passing of Lenny. Your in our hearts and prayers.
I will put my sunglasses on and have a drink.
I always seem to remember driving around with Lenny in his father's red Ford wagon with the radio playing " I can't get no satisfaction from the Rolling Stones "
And him laying down two strips of rubber in front of my mother's house with a big white Oldsmobile...
Rest In Peace Lenny...

With a Heavy Heart I write this. Lenny was a very special man. He was with me when I shot my 1st buck and taught me how to hunt, he was my driver in my 1st marriage and showed me the value of Family. My deepest sympathys are extended to his family and friends......We Lost Someone Special. My biggest regret is loosing contact as life took us down separate paths and hunting camps in different directions. Lenny I Will FOREVER Miss You Brother and will always hold your Laughter dear to my Heart. Later, Not Goodbye! Jim

Len was just the person I needed at the time and place we met in Japan. He introduced me to one of those small pleasures in life - Pepperoni - which I would have eventually discovered anyway, but wouldn't have the same great memories about if it weren't for Rooms. I remember many great times together; the combination of his sense of humor and my penchant for practical jokes produced several rousing events of shock and laughter for many people. There is an empty place in my heart now; but still some great memories in my brain. Thank you Rooms! RIP. My condolences to Monica and family; wish I were there to give you a hug.

So sorry on the loss of Lenny, he was great guy. I remember him and my older brother hanging out in highschool and teasing the heck out of me and my girlfriends. He will be missed! RIP Lenny.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the DeMarco family. Lenny will be missed terribly. There's an old saying that all you really need in life is three good friends. We just lost one of the three. RIP...... See you later!
