Len was one of the nicest Docents I worked with. He was always helpful, friendly and caring.

He also became a friend of my Aunt Vera Lewis while living at Friendship Village.My mom and I enjoyed talking to him after she (Vera) passed away.

Len will be greatly missed!

I am eternally grateful for the wonderful gesture Len made in speaking at my father's funeral service in 1991. My father, Marshall Cupp, was a fellow WWII 10th Mountain veteran. They did not know each other during the war, but met on a reunion visit to Italy and became good friends. Len, dressed in his bright red 10 Mountain blazer, spoke vividly of their first meeting in the town square in Lizzano in Belvedere and of the significance of the war experience. It was a touching moment, appreciated not only by our family but by all in attendance. My heartfelt condolences to Len's family in the passing of this honorable gentleman.

Both of us have missed seeing Len at the zoo since his health had declined. He was a great friend and always willing to help us learn something new. Our condolences to Merilyn and all of his children and family.

So sad to lose Len. The four of us go back a long way. We'll grieve but we'll also remember the good times in Mansfield...in New Jersey...and in Worthington. Stay strong. We know he's waiting for us in a far, far, better place. Much love...

My mother, Doris D'Ooge Hall, was Len's first cousin. Their fathers, Leonard and Stanton, were brothers. Doris and Len lived on opposite sides of the country and rarely were able to visit each other. When I was visiting a friend in Columbus, OH in the early 2000's, mother suggested I visit with Len and his wife Merilyn. I contacted them, and was welcomed into their home with great warmth and hospitality. After that, whenever I got to Ohio, I would pay them a visit. In addition, after hearing his stories of service in WWII, I began to make sure I called on Veterans' Day, as well as regular other times. During my years caring for Mother, we visited Len and Merilyn once together, as well as making a visit to Len's brother, Charles, and his wife, Mary in Northern California. My horizons expanded with the love and stories that were shared with me, and I am forever grateful to have known Len in friendship as well as family ties. Len was a man of great integrity and goodness, and always thought of how his words and actions would affect others. My condolences to Merilyn and all of his children and family. Len's was a life well-lived.
