I had the good fortune to have met Len and Anita while taking organ lessons at Maestro Music. He was always a wonderful caring man. Always greeting me with a smile. It was a great privilege to have met both of them. His presence will be missed by many!

I'll always be grateful to Len and Anita for answering my request in 2014 for information about what it was like to serve aboard the USS Kendall C. Campbell during WWII. At the time, I was developing my website to honor all those aboard the ship. Len and Anita sent me photos, a map, drawings of weapons, the ship's logo, and shared anecdotes about Len's time on the ship from when it left Brooklyn, NY in July 1944 to when it returned to San Pedro, CA in November 1945. It was my privilege to know Len, and I am very sad he passed away.
