He volunteered his time to the Disabled American Vets. He loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, going to the lake and camping which included boating and skiing with his family. Some of his fondest memories were squirrel hunting with his father and Uncle Frank along with trot-lining with his cousin, J.R. Lenny was a family man who loved and doted on his children, Zach and Evan, his grandchildren E.J. and Daryn. He loved spending time with his sister Connie. Zach and Evan remember their dad never saying no, even when they thought something was too much, dad would say “get it anyway”, that is just who Lenny was. He was kind, giving, loved people and was always giving donations to children selling candy or cookies and would tell them to keep the items.
