So sorry about Leonard. I will remember the talks we had when he and Judy would come over and sit in the backyard. He was so precious and always had a kind word. He will be greatly missed.

I was one of the group with Lenny, Terry Campbell, Harold Schumacher, and Terry Nelson. It was a great group. Len will be missed. He will be able to tell Mary Jane all the latest news. My prayers for the family.

Leonard was a great man with a warm heart and a quick wit. He and Mary Jane opened their home and family to me before/after school and through the summers for 5 years while I was in grade school. They were impressionable years that I remember fondly. I will be forever grateful to have been considered the 7 child of such an incredible family.

Leonard had a very deep faith and loved his God very much. He and his wife, Mary Jane, were great role models for their children. Leonard was a great advocate for Catholic education and served our parish and school very well.

Our Dear White Family, Please know that we are privileged to have known Leonard as both a dear cousin and as a good friend. His kindness and generous spirit enriched our lives and those of the Witts. May God be with all of you as surely as He is now with Leonard. Love, Molly Ciancone Ruminski and Ann Ciancone

Becky and family, I am so sorry to read about the loss of your dad. So many memories of him- what a great guy who loved his family. My fondest memory was when he brought the postal truck to Kelly’s house in a massive snow storm to bring us all home after spending the night after a party! He always had a smile on his face- May he Rest In Peace. He deserves eternal rest.

I asked my father to share something about Lenny. He told me several stories about how Terry Campbell, Lenny, my Dad, and some others would spend time together in Bellaire, Ohio. He said, "We were just kids, always together like our own rat pack." He shared how Lenny tried to sell him a Cadillac back in the day but they couldn't quite work out the details. We are saddened by the loss of a father and a special friend. My Dad said he is grateful for knowing him and that he is at peace with our Lord. His memory will live on in all of us. Schumacher Family.

I’m Terry Campbell’s sister and have knwn Len since I was young. I actually babysat for him and Mary Jane a few times. He used to stop at our house in Bellaire on Saturdays on his lunch hour. He loved my mom’s homemade cinnamon rolls. Len was always so much fun to be with. You are all in my prayers.

I have so many wonderful memories of Mr. White. I always enjoyed listening to his views on our government, the political parties running our country and the NRA. He had strong opinions, was always more than happy to share them with you and was spot on. I enjoyed sharing a drink and a cigar with him at the many men’s weekends hosted by Whitey and discussing his most recent car or truck purchase. He loved his fast rides! Mr. White always had a kind and encouraging word to share and was a role model Catholic who lived out his faith. I loved seeing him reading his pocket bible at men’s weekends and seeing him at mass. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Dave Oboy

So very sorry to hear of the passing of Leonard. He was such a friendly man and we always spoke in church. I taught Becky, Amy and Phillip at St. Johns Grad School.
