    To Leonard's family and many friends we offer our deepest condolences and sympathy. We remember showing Len around San Francisco when he visited us in California after joining the Marine Corps. I think he enjoyed showing his Uncle Adam his Marine uniform, who also served in the Marines in Korea. Memory Eternal. RIP Leonard. You will be missed. Uncle Adam and Aunt Shirley
