2018 Len returned to his Heavenly Father on February 2, 2018. Born to Nello and Brunetta Pollacchi on March 12, 1942 in Scotland, raised in England, he and his parents immigrated to Sacramento in 1951. He became an American citizen in 1965 and proudly served our country during the Vietnam War as a member of the U.S. 6th & 8th Army Bands at the Presidio in San Francisco, and in Seoul, Korea. He was the beloved husband of Dona, the proud father of sons Christopher (wife Shannon) and Andre, and cherished Papa of Sophia and Lucas Pollacchi. He lived passionately sharing abiding love for his family and friends, his enormous musical talents, teaching for 40 years, Italian heritage, cars, motor-cycles, World War II history, gadgets, model building, jazz and his deserved reputation as "the best bass player in town". Len's "life goes on in endless song". A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday March 17, 2018 at 11:00 am at St. Anthony Church, 660 Florin Road, Sacramento 95831.
