Memories Timeline


  1. Wanda and I are so sorry for your loss. We know how Len lived and his faith was evedent. I am sure he is now in heaven,waiting for us.I hope this gives you some comfort in the days to come. As the song goes he is probably saying ‘wish you were here.’ Love you all–

  2. I had the pleasure of working with Leonard in the Equipment Department for many years. He helped me when I came on board and showed me the ropes, and was very kind to me. We both had one thing in common and that was our love for the UNC Tarheels. After each game we would go over how they played, and was always looking ahead for the next game. He was such a valuable employee for the NCDOT, and had many freinds. Please accept our condolences from the NC Department Of Transportation.
