Len enjoyed anything musical and played a variety of musical instruments. Free time was spent outdoors planting flowers, spending time with family pets, and just being outside in God's creation. It didn't matter if it was working with the garden or "piddling" with his favorite tractor.
He would encourage all of the people he knew to look around, see and enjoy the beauty of God's creation around us. It could be blooming little flowers or the rustling breeze. Don't take any of it for granted!
Funeral mass will be held on Tuesday, June 6, at 2 o'clock in St. Mary's Catholic Church with Father Rafael Castaño officiating. Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, June 7, at 2 o'clock in the Evergreen Baptist Church Cemetery in Metter, GA.
