After graduating from Hartford Central School in 1977, he went on to work many odd jobs. Leonard spent the remainder of his life as a self-employed dairy farmer. He enjoyed sharing this passion with his sons. Leonard married the love of his life, Christine Mattison, on November 20, 1982 at the United Protestant Church in Fort Ann.

Leonard enjoyed attending auctions of any kind and the Washington County Fair. He was an excellent herdsman and loved caring for his cattle. He enjoyed spending time at Stewart’s having coffee with friends. He had a special place in his heart for his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.

My condolences. Lenny was a great kind soul. Of all of the years of him calling me from the farm... Stopping by when I was on location to pick up some tickets for the kids.... Or just popping in to say hello.... He always made my day. We joked about Malcolm Brown, and it was just always a pleasure to talk with Lenny. If he knew I was outside broadcasting somewhere he would show up with a cup of Stewart's coffee if he was nearby. and I was thrilled to death when he won the John Deere tractor a few years ago for our father mows best giveaway. Rest in peace my dear friend I miss you already. Kate Sullivan

I remember the first time I was your nurse on T6, and almost every staff member asked how you were, or stopped in to see you. I was like who is this guy. Then I saw after spending the day with you, that you were just a good soul!!! Kind, funny and down to earth! Hope you know how many lives you touched in T6, we love you and you will always hold a place in our hearts!

Sending heartfelt sympathy to all of Lenny's family. I have fond memories of the Washington County Fair, growing up as a child. My sister, Sandra and I lived in New Hampshire and would spend a couple of weeks in the summer at the farm always making sure the vacation time included the fair. Grampa dropped us all off at the fair for the day. What fun we all had!! Lenny was always the first to run out of money and checking with us all to see if we would be needing the money that we had. We all needed our money! Somehow, someway, he would always find money on the ground, to make it through the day! I will cherish this memory, as well as many others.
