Posted by the Garvin family,
We were so sorry to hear of Lenny’s passing. For many years we enjoyed watching him play hockey, always giving 100% and his old coach, Ted Garvin, greatly valued his talents and skills as a hockey player, often recruiting Lenny to play on many of the teams he coached both in Canada and the U.S.
Our sincere sympathy and condolences to Len’s family.
Toutes nos sympathie à la famille et aux proches

I am saddened to hear of Len’s passing we had a lot of banter back and forth at Wilbur Farms I will truly miss the stories and the friendly bickering back and forth.

Lenny .. your amazing talent on the ice and the competitor in you while urging your teams to win the game will not be forgotten … RIP Len
To the Fontaine family. We all grew up as one big group of kids playing sports on the road and skating on the many front and back yard rinks on Felix St. One of the older girls always referred to us as the Felix St brat gang and we proudly answered to that name. While the years have gone by many of us still see each other once in awhile and Len was one we knew as he and my sister both worked at the Lefarge stone dock He will be missed for his quirky ways and uniqueness. Enjoy your memories and know we all remember him too.
