He served in the US Army Signal Corps in Japan for two years and the Army reserve.

Len worked his entire career in various sales positions until his retirement.

Len loved the natural beauty and the friendliness of the people on Cape Cod so he purchased a home in Falmouth in 1970 that he and his family and friends could enjoy.

He was an outdoor person who loved salt water fishing for bass and blue fish with family and friends. He also enjoyed boating, the beach and the ocean especially the Nantucket Sound. He loved to play basketball and was especially interested when the Celtics or the Patriots were winning.
